Getting Started


Use pip to install or upgrade Spotty:

pip install -U spotty

Python >=3.6 is required.

Also, depending on the use case, some additional software is needed:

Prepare a configuration file

Prepare a spotty.yaml file and put it to the root directory of your project:

Start an instance

Use the following command to launch an instance with the Docker container:

spotty start

If you're using AWS, it will create EBS volumes if needed, start an instance, upload project files and start the Docker container with the environment for your project.

Train your models or run notebooks

To connect to the running container via SSH, use the following command:

spotty sh

It runs a tmux session, so you can always detach this session using Ctrl + b, then d combination of keys. To be attached to that session later, just use the spotty sh command again.

Also, you can run custom scripts inside the Docker container using the spotty run <SCRIPT_NAME> command. Read more about custom scripts in the documentation: Configuration File: "scripts" section.
