Orchest is a browser based IDE for Data Science. It integrates your favorite Data Science tools out of the box, so you don’t have to. The application is easy to use and can run on your laptop as well as on a large scale cloud cluster.


A preview of creating pipelines in Orchest. Watch the full video to learn more.


For a complete list of Orchest's features, check out the overview in our docs!

  • Visually construct pipelines.
  • Run any subset of a pipeline directly or on a cron-like schedule.
  • Parametrize your data science pipelines to try out different modeling ideas.
  • Easily define your custom runtime environment that runs on any machine.

Who should use Orchest?

  • Data Scientists who want to rapidly prototype.
  • Data Scientists who like to work in Notebooks.
  • Data Scientists who are looking to create pipelines through a visual interface instead of YAML.


NOTE: Orchest is in alpha.

For GPU support, language dependencies other than Python, and other installation methods, such as building from source, please refer to our installation docs.
