No need to keep checking your training. Add just 1 import line and MLNotify will let you know the second it’s done.


  • Just pip install mlnotify and import mlnotify to get started
  • Out-of-the-box email & push notifications on desktop, mobile
  • Support for most major ML frameworks (as in Keras, LightGBM, SKLearn, XGBoost, Tensorflow)
  • A simple & intuitive UX
  • Fully secure – no sensitive data leaves your machine (only training start time / end time)

ML Notify


pip3 install mlnotify

# STEP 1: Import package
import mlnotify

# STEP 2: Do your thing.

# STEP 3: Browse to and get notified when training is done!

The import will automagically hook into your fit/train method.

  • Once you start training your model a tracking url & QR code will be printed to the console.
    Printed tracking URL & QR code
  • Enter the tracking url
  • Grab a coffee and relax, the tracking url will notify you when the training is complete via desktop, mobile, or email notifications



import mlnotify

This will automagically hook into your fit/train method.

Supported ML frameworks:

Jupyter Notebook

import mlnotify

And in any Jupyter cell:


Works with line magic, too

%notify your_code()


The library also exports a manual API to be used if you want to do it manually.

import mlnotify

mlnotify.start() # Start tracking
# ...
mlnotify.end() # End tracking


The library uses a simple plugin architecture. You can register your own plugins to extend the library’s functionality.

from mlnotify import BasePlugin, plugin_manager

# A plugin is simply a class with `before` and `after` methods
class MyPlugin(BasePlugin):
    def before(self, *args, **kwargs):
        # Called before the fit/train method
        print("MyPlugin: training started")

    def after(self, *args, **kwargs):
        # Called after the fit/train method
        print("MyPlugin: training finished")


# Use mlnotify as you normally would


The library exports four items:

from mlnotify import start, end, plugins_manager, BasePlugin

start() -> None

Starts tracking.

end() -> None

Ends tracking.

plugins_manager: PluginsManager

The class handling all plugin registration and invocation.

  • plugins_manager.register_plugin(plugin: BasePlugin) -> None

    Registers a plugin.

  • plugins_manager.clear_plugins() -> None

    Removes all registered plugins.


No sensitive data is sent to the MLNotify server – only training start & end time.

Contribution, self-deployment & local development

Contributions and self-deployments are more than welcome.

Website & API

This project relies heavily on SaaS products, and must receive proper config for Netlify, Firebase and SendGrid for it to work. You can run this project locally using the Netlify CLI:

  • Make sure you installed the Netlify CLI globally: npm install -g netlify-cli
  • You must have the following environment variables set:
    • FIREBASE_SERVER_CERT – a stringified JSON containing the firebase server config (it contains the following keys: {type, project_id, private_key_id, private_key, client_email, client_id, auth_uri, token_uri, auth_provider_x509_cert_url, client_x509_cert_url})
    • GRIDSOME_FIREBASE_APP_CONFIG – a stringified JSON containing the firebase client config (it contains the following keys: {apiKey, projectId, messagingSenderId, appId})
    • SENDGRID_API_KEY – a string containing the SendGrid API Key
  • cd website
  • netlify dev


  • pip install ./sdk
  • Write a python file using the SDK and just import mlnotify
