A quite light weight deep learning framework, on top of Theano, offering better balance between flexibility and abstraction

Researchers who need flexibility as well as convenience to experiment all kinds of *nonstandard* network structures, and also the stability of Theano.

**Aiming to offer better balance between flexibility and abstraction.**- Easy to use and extend, support for any neural network structure.
- Loose coupling, each part of the framework can be modified independently.

**More like a handy library of deep learning modules.**- Common modules such as CNN, LSTM, GRU, Dense, Dropout, Batch Normalization, and common optimization methods such as SGD, Adam, Adadelta, Rmsprop are ready out-of-the-box.

**Plug & play, operating directly on Theano tensors, no upper abstraction applied.**- Unlike previous frameworks like Keras, Lasagne, etc., Dandelion operates directly on tensors instead of layer abstractions, making it quite easy to plug in 3rd part defined deep learning modules (layer defined by Keras/Lasagne) or vice versa.

- The reason is more about the lack of flexibility for existing DL frameworks, such as Keras, Lasagne, Blocks, etc.
- By
**“flexibility”**, we means whether it is easy to modify or extend the framework.- The famous DL framework Keras is designed to be beginner-friendly oriented, at the cost of being quite hard to modify.
- Compared to Keras, another less-famous framework Lasagne provides more flexibility. It’s easier to write your own layer by Lasagne for small neural network, however, for complex neural networks it still needs quite manual works because like other existing frameworks, Lasagne operates on abstracted ‘Layer’ class instead of raw tensor variables.

Python Module | Explanation |
---|---|

module | all neual network module definitions |

functional | operations on tensor with no parameter to be learned |

initialization | initialization methods for neural network modules |

activation | definition of all activation functions |

objective | definition of all loss objectives |

update | definition of all optimizers |

util | utility functions |

model | model implementations out-of-the-box |

ext | extensions |

The design of Dandelion heavily draws on Lasagne and Pytorch, both my favorate DL libraries.

Special thanks to **Radomir Dopieralski**, who transferred the `dandelion`

project name on pypi to us. Now you can install the package by simply `pip install dandelion`
