Write TensorBoard events with simple function call.

The current release (v2.1) is tested on anaconda3, with PyTorch 1.5.1 / torchvision 0.6.1 / tensorboard 2.2.2.

  • Support scalar, image, figure, histogram, audio, text, graph, onnx_graph, embedding, pr_curve, mesh, hyper-parameters and video summaries.

  • FAQ


pip install tensorboardX

or build from source:

pip install 'git+'

You can optionally install crc32c to speed up.

pip install crc32c

Starting from tensorboardX 2.1, You need to install soundfile for the add_audio() function (200x speedup).

pip install soundfile
