Ignite Your Networks!¶
ignite is a high-level library to help with training neural networks in PyTorch.
- ignite helps you write compact but full-featured training loops in a few lines of code
- you get a training loop with metrics, early-stopping, model checkpointing and other features without the boilerplate
Below we show a side-by-side comparison of using pure pytorch and using ignite to create a training loop to train and validate your model with occasional checkpointing:
As you can see, the code is more concise and readable with ignite. Furthermore, adding additional metrics, or things like early stopping is a breeze in ignite, but can start to rapidly increase the complexity of your code when “rolling your own” training loop.
pip install pytorch-ignite
conda install ignite -c pytorch
pip install git+https://github.com/pytorch/ignite
pip install --pre pytorch-ignite
From conda (this suggests to install pytorch nightly release instead of stable version as dependency):
conda install ignite -c pytorch-nightly
