Data Version Control or DVC is an open source tool for data science projects. It helps data scientists manage their code and data together in a simple form of Git-like commands.
|Track code and data together||
|Connect code and data by commands||
|Make changes and reproduce||
|Share data and ML models||
See more in tutorial.
Operating system dependent packages are the recommended way to install DVC. The latest version of the packages can be found at GitHub releases page: https://github.com/dataversioncontrol/dvc/releases
DVC could be installed via the Python Package Index (PyPI).
pip install dvc
Homebrew (Mac OS)
brew install dataversioncontrol/homebrew-dvc/dvc
brew cask install dataversioncontrol/homebrew-dvc/dvc
- Git-annex - DVC uses the idea of storing the content of large files (that you don't want to see in your Git repository) in a local key-value store and uses file hardlinks/symlinks instead of the copying actual files.
- Makefile (and it's analogues). DVC tracks dependencies (DAG).
- Workflow Management Systems. DVC is workflow management system designed specificaly to manage machine learning experiments. DVC was built on top of Git.
DVC is compatible with Git for storing code and the dependency graph (DAG), but not data files cache. Data files caches can be transferred separately - now data cache transfer throught AWS S3 and GCP storge are supported.
