MLX Examples

This repo contains a variety of standalone examples using the MLX framework.

The MNIST example is a good starting point to learn how to use MLX.

Some more useful examples are listed below.

Text Models

Image Models

Audio Models

Multimodal models

  • Joint text and image embeddings with CLIP.

Other Models

  • Semi-supervised learning on graph-structured data with GCN.
  • Real NVP normalizing flow for density estimation and sampling.

Hugging Face

Note: You can now directly download a few converted checkpoints from the MLX Community organization on Hugging Face. We encourage you to join the community and contribute new models.
