Modelforge is a foundation for sharing trained machine learning models. It is a set of command line tools and a Python library. Modelforge maintains model files in a third-party remote storage service ("cloud") using the backend mechanism. Model metadata (download links, names, descriptions, versions, etc.) resides in a Git repository called the "Index", and documentation is automatically generated there. Modelforge does no assumptions about the models: they can be of any origin, such as TensorFlow, scikit-learn, or your custom. The underlying model storage format - Advanced Scientific Data Format - can wrap any data easily and efficiently, but it's the developer's responsibility to convert.

Who uses Modelforge?
You can run Modelforge through Docker:
docker run -it --rm srcd/modelforge --help
or install it using the Python package manager:
pip3 install modelforge
If you wish to make your MLonCode model available in src-d/models,
please fork that repository and run
modelforge publish to upload your model on your fork. Then
create a pull request. You should provide read access to the model file for everybody. If you
consider using our Google Cloud Storage bucket, feel free to contact us through GitHub issues.
