allennlp.commandsΒΆ

These submodules contain the command line tools for things like training and evaluating models. You probably don’t want to call most of them directly. Instead, just create a script that calls allennlp.commands.main() and it will automatically inherit all of the subcommands in this module.

The included module allennlp.run is such a script:

$ python -m allennlp.run --help
usage: run [command]

Run AllenNLP

optional arguments:
-h, --help  show this help message and exit

Commands:

    predict   Use a trained model to make predictions.
    train     Train a model
    serve     Run the web service and demo.
    evaluate  Evaluate the specified model + dataset

However, it only knows about the models and classes that are included with AllenNLP. Once you start creating custom models, you’ll need to make your own script which imports them and then calls main().
