Py-FEAT: Python Facial Expression Analysis Toolbox
Py-FEAT is a suite for facial expressions (FEX) research written in Python. This package includes tools to detect faces, extract emotional facial expressions (e.g., happiness, sadness, anger), facial muscle movements (e.g., action units), and facial landmarks, from videos and images of faces, as well as methods to preprocess, analyze, and visualize FEX data.
For detailed examples, tutorials, contribution guidelines, and API please refer to the Py-FEAT website.
Option 1: Easy installation for quick use
Clone the repository
pip install py-feat
Option 2: Installation in development mode
git clone https://github.com/cosanlab/feat.git
cd feat && python setup.py install -e .
If you're running into issues on arm-based macOS (e.g. m1, m2) you should install pytables using one of the methods below before installing py-feat:
pip install git+https://github.com/PyTables/PyTables.git
conda install pytables
Py-Feat currently supports both CPU and GPU processing on NVIDIA cards. We have experimental support for GPUs on macOS which you can try with
device='auto'. However, we currently advise using the default (
cpu) on macOS until PyTorch support stabilizes.
Note: If you forked or cloned this repo prior to 04/26/2022, you'll want to create a new fork or clone as we've used
git-filter-repo to clean up large files in the history. If you prefer to keep working on that old version, you can find an archival repo here

Please ensure all tests pass before creating any pull request or larger change to the code base.
Automated testing is handled by Github Actions according to the following rules:
- On pushes to the main branch and every week on Sundays, a full test-suite will be run and docs will be built and deployed
- On PRs against the main branch, a full test-suite will be run and docs will be built but not deployed
- On publishing a release via github, the package will be uploaded to PyPI and docs will be built and deployed
Note: Each of these workflows can also be run manually. They can also be skipped by adding 'skip ci' anywhere inside your commit message.
Model weights are stored as assets in release tag v0.1. They will automatically download as needed.
