Models and examples built with Swift for TensorFlow

Swift for TensorFlow Models

This repository contains TensorFlow models written in Swift.

Use the tensorflow-xx branch that corresponds to the release you are using from Swift for TensorFlow releases. For example, for the 0.6 release, use the tensorflow-0.6 branch.

Actual development occurs on the master branch. As new packages are released, master is pushed to stable.

For general information about Swift for TensorFlow development, please visit tensorflow/swift.


macOS and Linux

Use Swift Package Manager to develop Swift for TensorFlow models.


swift build


swift test


Use CMake to develop Swift for TensorFlow models.

Experimental CMake Support

There is experimental support for building with CMake. This is required to build the models on Windows, and can also be used to cross-compile the models and the demo programs.

NOTE: tests are currently not supported with the CMake based build.

It is highly recommended that you use CMake 3.16 or newer to ensure that -B and parallel builds function properly in the example commands below. To install this version on Ubuntu, we recommend following the instructions at Kitware's apt repo.

Prerequisite: Ninja build tool. Find installation commands for your favorite package manager here.
