A CLI and library for interacting with the Weights and Biases API.

Project description

Weights and Biases ci pypi

The W&B client is an open source library and CLI (wandb) for organizing and analyzing your machine learning experiments. Think of it as a framework-agnostic lightweight TensorBoard that persists additional information such as the state of your code, system metrics, and configuration parameters.


  • Store config parameters used in a training run
  • Associate version control with your training runs
  • Search, compare, and visualize training runs
  • Analyze system usage metrics alongside runs
  • Collaborate with team members
  • Run parameter sweeps
  • Persist runs forever


pip install wandb

In your training script:

import wandb
# Your custom arguments defined here
args = ...

run = wandb.init(config=args)
run.config["more"] = "custom"

def training_loop():
    while True:
        # Do some machine learning
        epoch, loss, val_loss = ...
        # Framework agnostic / custom metrics
        wandb.log({"epoch": epoch, "loss": loss, "val_loss": val_loss})

Running your script

Run wandb signup from the directory of your training script. If you already have an account, you can run wandb init to initialize a new directory. You can checkin wandb/settings to version control to share your project with other users.

Run your script with python and all metadata will be synced to the cloud. Data is staged locally in a directory named wandb relative to your script. If you want to test your script without syncing to the cloud you can run wandb off.
