Setup Guide (for Mac / Linux)¶
For Windows users, jump to setup_windows
git clone https://github.com/mil-tokyo/webdnn
Installing WebGPU environment¶
WebDNN runs fastest on browsers which support WebGPU. Currently, only Safari Technology Preview on macOS supports it.
If you don’t have such environment, WebAssembly backend can be used. It is supported by most modern browsers. (Note: IE and Safari does not support WebAssembly, but asm.js code is automatically generated along with WebAssembly code, and gives similar performance.)
Installing python package¶
This framework requires python3.6+.
cd webdnn python3 setup.py install
This will install
If you want to convert models of Caffe or Chainer, install chainer package.
pip install chainer
(Currently, tested with
Installing Emscripten and Eigen¶
If you want to enable WebAssembly backend, em++ command from Emscripten is required. You can skip this section if you try WebGPU backend only.
To setup Emscripten which supports WebAssembly,
git clone https://github.com/juj/emsdk.git cd emsdk ./emsdk install sdk-incoming-64bit binaryen-master-64bit ./emsdk activate sdk-incoming-64bit binaryen-master-64bit
(see also http://webassembly.org/getting-started/developers-guide/ )
To enable em++ command, you need to type command on the shell.
Eigen is needed as the library.
wget http://bitbucket.org/eigen/eigen/get/3.3.3.tar.bz2 tar jxf 3.3.3.tar.bz2
To enable Eigen to be included on compile, you need to type command on the shell.
