Installation

Option 1: from PyPI

pip install lightning-transformers
# instead of: `python train.py ...`, run with:
pl-transformers-train ...

Option 2: from source

git clone https://github.com/PyTorchLightning/lightning-transformers.git
cd lightning-transformers
pip install .
python train.py ...
# the `pl-transformers-train` endpoint is also available!

What is Lightning-Transformers

Lightning Transformers offers a flexible interface for training and fine-tuning SOTA Transformer models using the PyTorch Lightning Trainer.

  • Train using HuggingFace Transformers models and datasets with Lightning custom Callbacks, Loggers, Accelerators and high performance scaling.
  • Seamless Memory and Speed Optimizations such as DeepSpeed ZeRO or FairScale Sharded Training with no code changes.
  • Powerful config composition backed by Hydra - Easily swap out models, optimizers, schedulers and many more configurations without touching the code.
  • Transformer Task Abstraction for Rapid Research & Experimentation - Built from the ground up to be task agnostic, the library supports creating transformer tasks across all modalities with little friction.

Lightning Transformers tasks allow you to train models using HuggingFace Transformer models and datasets, use Hydra to hotswap models, optimizers or schedulers and leverage all the advances features that Lightning has to offer, including custom Callbacks, Loggers, Accelerators and high performance scaling with minimal changes.
