Development environment for data science and AI/ML
⚠️ envd is still under heavy development, and subject to change. it is not feature-complete or production-ready. Please contact us in discord if there is any problem.
envd is a machine learning development environment for data science and AI/ML engineering teams.
🐍 No Docker, only Python – Focus on writing Python code, we will take care of Docker and development environment setup.
🖨️ Built-in Jupyter/VSCode – First-class support for Jupyter and VSCode remote extension.
⏱️ Save time – Better cache management to save your time, keep the focus on the model, instead of dependencies.
☁️ Local & cloud –
envd integrates seamlessly with Docker so that you can easily share, version, and publish
envd environments with Docker Hub or any other OCI image registries.
🔁 Repeatable builds & reproducible results – You can reproduce the same dev environment on your laptop, public cloud VMs, or Docker containers, without any change in setup.
It is still too difficult to configure development environments and reproduce results in AI/ML applications.
envd is a machine learning development environment for data science and AI/ML engineering teams. Environments built with
envd provide the following features out-of-the-box:
🐍 Life is short, use Python1
Development environments are full of Dockerfiles, bash scripts, Kubernetes YAML manifests, and many other clunky files that are always breaking.
envd builds are isolated and clean. You can write simple instructions in Python, instead of Bash / Makefile / Dockerfile / …
⏱️ Save you plenty of time
envd adopts a multi-level cache mechanism to accelerate the building process. For example, the PyPI cache is shared across builds and thus the package will be cached if it has been downloaded before. It saves plenty of time, especially when you update the environment by trial and error.
$ envd build => pip install tensorflow 5s + => Using cached tensorflow-...-.whl (511.7 MB)
$ docker build => pip install tensorflow 278s - => Downloading tensorflow-...-.whl (511.7 MB)
☁️ Local & cloud native
envd integrates seamlessly with Docker, you can share, version, and publish
envd environments with Docker Hub or any other OCI image registries. The
envd environments can be run on Docker or Kubernetes.
🔁 Repeatable builds & reproducible results
You can reproduce the same dev environment, on your laptop, public cloud VMs, or Docker containers, without any change in setup. You can also collaborate with your colleagues without “let me configure the environment in your machine”.
🖨️ Seamless experience of Jupyter/VSCode
envd provides first-class support for Jupyter and VSCode remote extension. You benefit without sacrificing any developer experience.
Who should use envd?
We’re focused on helping data scientists and teams that develop AI/ML models. And they may suffer from:
- building the development environments with Python, CUDA, Docker, SSH, and so on. Do you have a complicated Dockerfile or build script that sets up all your dev environments, but is always breaking?
- Updating the environment. Do you always need to ask infrastructure engineers how to add a new python package in the Dockerfile?
- Managing environments and machines. Do you always forget which machines are used for the specific project, because you handle multiple projects concurrently?

See envd documentation.
- Docker (20.10.0 or above)
Install and bootstrap
envd can be installed with
pip. After the installation, please run
envd bootstrap to bootstrap.
pip install envd envd bootstrap
You can add
-mflag when running
envd bootstrap, to configure the mirror for docker.io registry:envd bootstrap --dockerhub-mirror https://docker.mirrors.sjtug.sjtu.edu.cn
Please clone the
git clone https://github.com/tensorchord/envd-quick-start.git
The build manifest
build.envd looks like:
def build(): base(os="ubuntu20.04", language="python3") install.python_packages(name = [ "numpy", ]) shell("zsh")
Then please run the command below to set up a new environment:
cd envd-quick-start && envd up

Play with the environment
You can run
ssh envd-quick-start.envd to reconnect if you exit from the environment. Or you can execute
python commands inside.
$ python demo.py [2 3 4] $ git fetch $
Set up Jupyter notebook
Please edit the
build.envd to enable jupyter notebook:
def build(): base(os="ubuntu20.04", language="python3") install.python_packages(name = [ "numpy", ]) shell("zsh") config.jupyter(password="", port=8888)
You can get the endpoint of the running Jupyter notebook via
envd get envs.
$ envd up --detach $ envd get env NAME JUPYTER SSH TARGET CONTEXT IMAGE GPU CUDA CUDNN STATUS CONTAINER ID envd-quick-start http://localhost:8888 envd-quick-start.envd /home/gaocegege/code/envd-quick-start envd-quick-start:dev false <none> <none> Up 54 seconds bd3f6a729e94
