Builder classes

Builders

🤗 Datasets relies on two main classes during the dataset building process: DatasetBuilder and BuilderConfig.

class datasets.DatasetBuilder

< >

( cache_dir: typing.Optional[str] = None config_name: typing.Optional[str] = None hash: typing.Optional[str] = None base_path: typing.Optional[str] = None info: typing.Optional[datasets.info.DatasetInfo] = None features: typing.Optional[datasets.features.features.Features] = None use_auth_token: typing.Union[bool, str, NoneType] = None repo_id: typing.Optional[str] = None data_files: typing.Union[str, list, dict, datasets.data_files.DataFilesDict, NoneType] = None data_dir: typing.Optional[str] = None name = 'deprecated' **config_kwargs )

Parameters

  • cache_dir (str, optional) — Directory to cache data. Defaults to "~/.cache/huggingface/datasets".
  • config_name (str, optional) — Name of the dataset configuration. It affects the data generated on disk: different configurations will have their own subdirectories and versions. If not provided, the default configuration is used (if it exists).

    Added in 2.3.0

    Parameter name was renamed to config_name.

  • hash (str, optional) — Hash specific to the dataset code. Used to update the caching directory when the dataset loading script code is updated (to avoid reusing old data). The typical caching directory (defined in self._relative_data_dir) is: name/version/hash/.
  • base_path (str, optional) — Base path for relative paths that are used to download files. This can be a remote URL.
  • features ([Features], optional) — Features types to use with this dataset. It can be used to change the Features types of a dataset, for example.
  • use_auth_token (str or bool, optional) — String or boolean to use as Bearer token for remote files on the Datasets Hub. If True, will get token from "~/.huggingface".
  • repo_id (str, optional) — ID of the dataset repository. Used to distinguish builders with the same name but not coming from the same namespace, for example “squad” and “lhoestq/squad” repo IDs. In the latter, the builder name would be “lhoestq___squad”.
  • data_files (str or Sequence or Mapping, optional) — Path(s) to source data file(s). For builders like “csv” or “json” that need the user to specify data files. They can be either local or remote files. For convenience, you can use a DataFilesDict.
  • data_dir (str, optional) — Path to directory containing source data file(s). Use only if data_files is not passed, in which case it is equivalent to passing os.path.join(data_dir, "**") as data_files. For builders that require manual download, it must be the path to the local directory containing the manually downloaded data.
  • name (str) — Configuration name for the dataset.

    Deprecated in 2.3.0

    Use config_name instead.

  • **config_kwargs (additional keyword arguments) — Keyword arguments to be passed to the corresponding builder configuration class, set on the class attribute [DatasetBuilder.BUILDER_CONFIG_CLASS]. The builder configuration class is [BuilderConfig] or a subclass of it.

Abstract base class for all datasets.

DatasetBuilder has 3 key methods:

  • [DatasetBuilder.info]: Documents the dataset, including feature names, types, and shapes, version, splits, citation, etc.
  • [DatasetBuilder.download_and_prepare]: Downloads the source data and writes it to disk.
  • [DatasetBuilder.as_dataset]: Generates a [Dataset].

Configuration: Some DatasetBuilders expose multiple variants of the dataset by defining a [BuilderConfig] subclass and accepting a config object (or name) on construction. Configurable datasets expose a pre-defined set of configurations in [DatasetBuilder.builder_configs].

as_dataset

< >

( split: typing.Optional[datasets.splits.Split] = None run_post_process = True ignore_verifications = False in_memory = False )

Parameters

  • split (datasets.Split) — Which subset of the data to return.
  • run_post_process (bool, default=True) — Whether to run post-processing dataset transforms and/or add indexes.
  • ignore_verifications (bool, default=False) — Whether to ignore the verifications of the downloaded/processed dataset information (checksums/size/splits/…).
  • in_memory (bool, default=False) — Whether to copy the data in-memory.

Return a Dataset for the specified split.

Example:

>>> from datasets import load_dataset_builder
>>> builder = load_dataset_builder('rotten_tomatoes')
>>> ds = builder.download_and_prepare()
>>> ds = builder.as_dataset(split='train')
>>> ds
Dataset({
    features: ['text', 'label'],
    num_rows: 8530
})

download_and_prepare

< >

( download_config: typing.Optional[datasets.download.download_config.DownloadConfig] = None download_mode: typing.Optional[datasets.download.download_manager.DownloadMode] = None ignore_verifications: bool = False try_from_hf_gcs: bool = True dl_manager: typing.Optional[datasets.download.download_manager.DownloadManager] = None base_path: typing.Optional[str] = None use_auth_token: typing.Union[bool, str, NoneType] = None **download_and_prepare_kwargs )

  • download_mode (DownloadMode, optional) — select the download/generate mode - Default to REUSE_DATASET_IF_EXISTS
  • ignore_verifications (bool) — Ignore the verifications of the downloaded/processed dataset information (checksums/size/splits/…)
  • try_from_hf_gcs (bool) — If True, it will try to download the already prepared dataset from the Hf google cloud storage
  • dl_manager (DownloadManager, optional) — specific Download Manger to use
  • base_path (str, optional) — base path for relative paths that are used to download files. This can be a remote url. If not specified, the value of the base_path attribute (self.base_path) will be used instead.
  • use_auth_token (Union[str, bool], optional) — Optional string or boolean to use as Bearer token for remote files on the Datasets Hub. If True, will get token from ~/.huggingface.
  • **download_and_prepare_kwargs (additional keyword arguments) — Keyword arguments.

get_imported_module_dir

< >

( )

Return the path of the module of this class or subclass.

class datasets.GeneratorBasedBuilder

< >

( *args writer_batch_size = None **kwargs )

Base class for datasets with data generation based on dict generators.

GeneratorBasedBuilder is a convenience class that abstracts away much of the data writing and reading of DatasetBuilder. It expects subclasses to implement generators of feature dictionaries across the dataset splits (_split_generators). See the method docstrings for details.

class datasets.BeamBasedBuilder

< >

( *args beam_runner = None beam_options = None **kwargs )

Beam based Builder.

class datasets.ArrowBasedBuilder

< >

( cache_dir: typing.Optional[str] = None config_name: typing.Optional[str] = None hash: typing.Optional[str] = None base_path: typing.Optional[str] = None info: typing.Optional[datasets.info.DatasetInfo] = None features: typing.Optional[datasets.features.features.Features] = None use_auth_token: typing.Union[bool, str, NoneType] = None repo_id: typing.Optional[str] = None data_files: typing.Union[str, list, dict, datasets.data_files.DataFilesDict, NoneType] = None data_dir: typing.Optional[str] = None name = 'deprecated' **config_kwargs )

Base class for datasets with data generation based on Arrow loading functions (CSV/JSON/Parquet).

class datasets.BuilderConfig

< >

( name: str = 'default' version: typing.Union[str, datasets.utils.version.Version, NoneType] = 0.0.0 data_dir: typing.Optional[str] = None data_files: typing.Optional[datasets.data_files.DataFilesDict] = None description: typing.Optional[str] = None )

Parameters

  • name (str, default "default") —
  • version (Version or str, optional) —
  • data_dir (str, optional) —
  • data_files (str or Sequence or Mapping, optional) — Path(s) to source data file(s).
  • description (str, optional) —

Base class for DatasetBuilder data configuration.

DatasetBuilder subclasses with data configuration options should subclass BuilderConfig and add their own properties.

create_config_id

< >

( config_kwargs: dict custom_features: typing.Optional[datasets.features.features.Features] = None )

The config id is used to build the cache directory. By default it is equal to the config name. However the name of a config is not sufficient to have a unique identifier for the dataset being generated since it doesn’t take into account:

  • the config kwargs that can be used to overwrite attributes
  • the custom features used to write the dataset
  • the data_files for json/text/csv/pandas datasets Therefore the config id is just the config name with an optional suffix based on these.

  • proxies (dict, optional) —
  • user_agent (str, optional) — Optional string or dict that will be appended to the user-agent on remote requests.
  • extract_compressed_file (bool, default False) — If True and the path point to a zip or tar file, extract the compressed file in a folder along the archive.
  • force_extract (bool, default False) — If True when extract_compressed_file is True and the archive was already extracted, re-extract the archive and override the folder where it was extracted.

Configuration for our cached path manager.

class datasets.DownloadMode

< >

( value names = None module = None qualname = None type = None start = 1 )

Enum for how to treat pre-existing downloads and data.

The default mode is REUSE_DATASET_IF_EXISTS, which will reuse both raw downloads and the prepared dataset if they exist.

The generations modes:

Downloads Dataset
REUSE_DATASET_IF_EXISTS (default) Reuse Reuse
REUSE_CACHE_IF_EXISTS Reuse Fresh
FORCE_REDOWNLOAD Fresh Fresh

Splits

class datasets.SplitGenerator

< >

( name: str gen_kwargs: typing.Dict = <factory> )

Parameters

  • name (str) — Name of the Split for which the generator will create the examples. **gen_kwargs — Keyword arguments to forward to the DatasetBuilder._generate_examples method of the builder.

Defines the split information for the generator.

This should be used as returned value of GeneratorBasedBuilder._split_generators(). See GeneratorBasedBuilder._split_generators() for more info and example of usage.

Example:

>>> datasets.SplitGenerator(
...     name=datasets.Split.TRAIN,
...     gen_kwargs={"split_key": "train", "files": dl_manager.download_and_extract(url)},
... )

class datasets.Split

< >

( name )

Enum for dataset splits.

Datasets are typically split into different subsets to be used at various stages of training and evaluation.

  • TRAIN: the training data.
  • VALIDATION: the validation data. If present, this is typically used as evaluation data while iterating on a model (e.g. changing hyperparameters, model architecture, etc.).
  • TEST: the testing data. This is the data to report metrics on. Typically you do not want to use this during model iteration as you may overfit to it.
  • ALL: the union of all defined dataset splits.

Note: All splits, including compositions inherit from datasets.SplitBase

See the :doc:guide on splits </loading> for more information.

Example:

>>> datasets.SplitGenerator(
...     name=datasets.Split.TRAIN,
...     gen_kwargs={"split_key": "train", "files": dl_manager.download_and extract(url)},
... ),
... datasets.SplitGenerator(
...     name=datasets.Split.VALIDATION,
...     gen_kwargs={"split_key": "validation", "files": dl_manager.download_and extract(url)},
... ),
... datasets.SplitGenerator(
...     name=datasets.Split.TEST,
...     gen_kwargs={"split_key": "test", "files": dl_manager.download_and extract(url)},
... )

class datasets.NamedSplit

< >

( name )

Descriptor corresponding to a named split (train, test, …).

Example:

Each descriptor can be composed with other using addition or slice. Ex
split = datasets.Split.TRAIN.subsplit(datasets.percent[0:25]) + datasets.Split.TEST

The resulting split will correspond to 25% of the train split merged with
100% of the test split.

Warning:

A split cannot be added twice, so the following will fail:

split = (
        datasets.Split.TRAIN.subsplit(datasets.percent[:25]) +
        datasets.Split.TRAIN.subsplit(datasets.percent[75:])
)  # Error
split = datasets.Split.TEST + datasets.Split.ALL  # Error

Warning:

The slices can be applied only one time. So the following are valid:

split = (
datasets.Split.TRAIN.subsplit(datasets.percent[:25]) +
datasets.Split.TEST.subsplit(datasets.percent[:50])
)
split = (datasets.Split.TRAIN + datasets.Split.TEST).subsplit(datasets.percent[:50])

But not:

train = datasets.Split.TRAIN
test = datasets.Split.TEST
split = train.subsplit(datasets.percent[:25]).subsplit(datasets.percent[:25])
split = (train.subsplit(datasets.percent[:25]) + test).subsplit(datasets.percent[:50])

class datasets.NamedSplitAll

< >

( )

Split corresponding to the union of all defined dataset splits.

class datasets.ReadInstruction

< >

( split_name rounding = None from_ = None to = None unit = None )

Reading instruction for a dataset.

Examples:

# The following lines are equivalent:
ds = datasets.load_dataset('mnist', split='test[:33%]')
ds = datasets.load_dataset('mnist', split=datasets.ReadInstruction.from_spec('test[:33%]'))
ds = datasets.load_dataset('mnist', split=datasets.ReadInstruction('test', to=33, unit='%'))
ds = datasets.load_dataset('mnist', split=datasets.ReadInstruction(
'test', from_=0, to=33, unit='%'))

# The following lines are equivalent:
ds = datasets.load_dataset('mnist', split='test[:33%]+train[1:-1]')
ds = datasets.load_dataset('mnist', split=datasets.ReadInstruction.from_spec(
'test[:33%]+train[1:-1]'))
ds = datasets.load_dataset('mnist', split=(
datasets.ReadInstruction('test', to=33, unit='%') +
datasets.ReadInstruction('train', from_=1, to=-1, unit='abs')))

# The following lines are equivalent:
ds = datasets.load_dataset('mnist', split='test[:33%](pct1_dropremainder)')
ds = datasets.load_dataset('mnist', split=datasets.ReadInstruction.from_spec(
'test[:33%](pct1_dropremainder)'))
ds = datasets.load_dataset('mnist', split=datasets.ReadInstruction(
'test', from_=0, to=33, unit='%', rounding="pct1_dropremainder"))

# 10-fold validation:
tests = datasets.load_dataset(
'mnist',
[datasets.ReadInstruction('train', from_=k, to=k+10, unit='%')
for k in range(0, 100, 10)])
trains = datasets.load_dataset(
'mnist',
[datasets.ReadInstruction('train', to=k, unit='%') + datasets.ReadInstruction('train', from_=k+10, unit='%')
for k in range(0, 100, 10)])

from_spec

< >

( spec )

Parameters

  • spec (str) — split(s) + optional slice(s) to read + optional rounding if percents are used as the slicing unit. A slice can be specified, using absolute numbers (int) or percentages (int). E.g. test: test split. test + validation: test split + validation split. test[10:]: test split, minus its first 10 records. test[:10%]: first 10% records of test split. test[:20%](pct1_dropremainder): first 10% records, rounded with the pct1_dropremainder rounding. test[:-5%]+train[40%:60%]: first 95% of test + middle 20% of train.

Creates a ReadInstruction instance out of a string spec.

to_absolute

< >

( name2len )

Translate instruction into a list of absolute instructions.

Those absolute instructions are then to be added together.
