Upload Package

Prepare Your Model Locally#

Project Structure#

Your package is firstly a Python Package. Therefore, it will look like:

- example_package
- example_package
- solver.py // required
- bundle.py // optional
- pretrained.toml // optional, required if your package needs to download file
- tests // optional
- examples // optional
- aid.toml // required
- requirements.txt // required

You can create the following structure by running the command aid new . It will promopt you to enter your package information, like below: aid-new.PNG


Solver is a class extended from aid.Solver class. In this class, you need to implement 2 functions: __init__ and infer. As their literal meanings, in the init function, parameters in your package should be initiate, and in the infer function, a image file path will be passed in the parameter, and the infer function is supposed to return your result in a dict or list.

For example, a simple solver frame will look like

from aid.solver import Solver
class SampleSolver(Solver):
def __init__(self, toml_file=None):
# Do you Init Work here
self.classifer = get_classifier()
def infer(self, data):
# if you need to get file uploaded, get the path from input_file_path in data
image = load_image(data['input_file_path'])
result = self.classifier(image)
return result # return a dict


aid.toml is the entry file where aid will look for your solvers. It uses toml syntax and should look like the following format:


Make sure this file is located at the root path of your project.

Pre-trained models#

In most occasions, your algorithms (or neural networks etc.) should be uploaded along with some pre-trained models. You can upload it onto any services that allow direct downloads via HTTP requests, e.g. GitHub releases or so.

You need to define your pre-trained models in pretrained.toml file as following using toml syntax:

name = "model_file_name"
url = "https://www.example.com/your_model_file.zip" # Remote File
name = "model_file_name"
url = "pretrained/name_of_your_modelfile" # Local File

Make sure this file is located at the root path of your project. AID will automatically download the file when install packages.

Publish to GitHub#

We encourage you to upload your package to GitHub repositories, as long as you want it to be open sourced.
