###EvoloPy: An open source nature-inspired optimization toolbox for global optimization in Python

The EvoloPy toolbox provides classical and recent nature-inspired metaheuristic for the global optimization. The list of optimizers that have been implemented includes Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO), Multi-Verse Optimizer (MVO), Grey Wolf Optimizer (GWO), and Moth Flame Optimization (MFO). The full list of implemented optimizers is available here


  • Six nature-inspired metaheuristic optimizers were implemented.
  • The implimentation uses the fast array manipulation using NumPy.
  • Matrix support using SciPy's package.
  • More optimizers is comming soon.


  • Python 3.xx is required.


pip3 install -r requirements.txt

(possibly with sudo)

That command above will install sklearn, NumPy and SciPy for you.

  • If you are installing EvoloPy Toolbox onto Windows, please Install Anaconda from here, which is the leading open data science platform powered by Python.

  • If you are installing onto Ubuntu or Debian and using Python 3 then this will pull in all the dependencies from the repositories:

    sudo apt-get install python3-numpy python3-scipy liblapack-dev libatlas-base-dev libgsl0-dev fftw-dev libglpk-dev libdsdp-dev

##Get the source

Clone the Git repository from GitHub

git clone

##Quick User Guide

EvoloPy toolbox contains twenty three benchamrks (F1-F23). The main file is the, which considered the interface of the toolbox. In the you can setup your experiment by selecting the optmizers, the benchmarks, number of runs, number of iterations, and population size. The following is a sample example to use the EvoloPy toolbox.
To choose PSO optimizer for your experiment, change the PSO flag to true and others to false.

Select optimizers:    
PSO= True  
MVO= False  
GWO = False  
MFO= False  
CS= False    

After that, Select benchmark function:


Change NumOfRuns, PopulationSize, and Iterations variables as you want:

PopulationSize = 50  
Iterations= 1000

Now your experiment is ready to run. Enjoy!
