Orkhon: ML Inference Framework and Server Runtime

Latest Release
Build Status travis build status

What is it?

Orkhon is Rust framework for Machine Learning to run/use inference/prediction code written in Python, frozen models and process unseen data. It is mainly focused on serving models and processing unseen data in a performant manner. Instead of using Python directly and having scalability problems for servers this framework tries to solve them with built-in async API.

Main features

  • Sync & Async API for models.
  • Easily embeddable engine for well-known Rust web frameworks.
  • API contract for interacting with Python code.
  • High processing throughput
  • Python Module caching


You can include Orkhon into your project with;

orkhon = "*"


You will need:

  • Rust Nightly needed (for now. until async support fully lands in)
  • Python dev dependencies installed and have proper python runtime to use Orkhon with your project.
  • Point out your PYTHONHOME environment variable to your Python installation.

Python API contract

For Python API contract you can take a look at the Project Documentation.


Minimal Async Model Request Example

let o = Orkhon::new()
    .pymodel("model_which_will_be_tested", // Unique identifier of the model
             "tests/pymodels",             // Python module directory
             "model_test",                 // Python module file name
        "model_hook"                       // Hook(Python method) that will be called by Orkhon

// Args for the request hook
let mut request_args = HashMap::new();
request_args.insert("is", 10);
request_args.insert("are", 6);
request_args.insert("you", 5);

// Kwargs for the request hook
let mut request_kwargs = HashMap::<&str, &str>::new();

// Future handle
let handle =

// Return the result
