The homepage of joblib with user documentation is located on:
Getting the latest code¶
To get the latest code using git, simply type:
git clone git://github.com/joblib/joblib.git
If you don’t have git installed, you can download a zip or tarball of the latest code: http://github.com/joblib/joblib/archives/master
You can use pip to install joblib:
pip install joblib
from any directory or:
python setup.py install
from the source directory.
Joblib has no mandatory dependencies besides Python (supported versions are 3.7+).
Joblib has an optional dependency on Numpy (at least version 1.6.1) for array manipulation.
Joblib includes its own vendored copy of loky for process management.
Joblib can efficiently dump and load numpy arrays but does not require numpy to be installed.
Joblib has an optional dependency on python-lz4 as a faster alternative to zlib and gzip for compressed serialization.
Joblib has an optional dependency on psutil to mitigate memory leaks in parallel worker processes.
Some examples require external dependencies such as pandas. See the instructions in the Building the docs section for details.
Workflow to contribute¶
To contribute to joblib, first create an account on github. Once this is done, fork the joblib repository to have your own repository, clone it using ‘git clone’ on the computers where you want to work. Make your changes in your clone, push them to your github account, test them on several computers, and when you are happy with them, send a pull request to the main repository.
Running the test suite¶
To run the test suite, you need the pytest (version >= 3) and coverage modules. Run the test suite using:
from the root of the project.
Building the docs¶
To build the docs you need to have sphinx (>=1.4) and some dependencies installed:
pip install -U -r .readthedocs-requirements.txt
The docs can then be built with the following command:
The html docs are located in the
Making a source tarball¶
To create a source tarball, eg for packaging or distributing, run the following command:
python setup.py sdist
The tarball will be created in the dist directory. This command will compile the docs, and the resulting tarball can be installed with no extra dependencies than the Python standard library. You will need setuptool and sphinx.
Making a release and uploading it to PyPI¶
This command is only run by project manager, to make a release, and upload in to PyPI:
python setup.py sdist bdist_wheel twine upload dist/*
Note that the documentation should automatically get updated at each git push. If that is not the case, try building th doc locally and resolve any doc build error (in particular when running the examples).
Updating the changelog¶
Changes are listed in the CHANGES.rst file. They must be manually updated but, the following git command may be used to generate the lines:
git log --abbrev-commit --date=short --no-merges --sparse
Ensure that errors in the task generator given to Parallel’s call are raised in the results consumming thread. https://github.com/joblib/joblib/pull/1491
Adjust codebase to NumPy 2.0 by changing
joblib.Parallelcan now be set to
generator_unordered. In this case the results will be returned in the order of task completion rather than the order of submission. https://github.com/joblib/joblib/pull/1463

distutilsis going away in Python 3.12 and is deprecated from Python 3.10 onwards. This import was kept around to avoid breaking scikit-learn, however it’s now been long enough since scikit-learn deployed a fixed (verion 1.1 was released in May 2022) that it should be safe to remove this. https://github.com/joblib/joblib/pull/1361
A warning is raised when a pickling error occurs during caching operations. In version 1.5, this warning will be turned into an error. For all other errors, a new warning has been introduced:
Avoid (module, name) collisions when caching nested functions. This fix changes the module name of nested functions, invalidating caches from previous versions of Joblib. https://github.com/joblib/joblib/pull/1374
Improve the behavior of
n_jobs=1, with simplified tracebacks and more efficient running time. https://github.com/joblib/joblib/pull/1393
parallel_configcontext manager to allow for more fine-grained control over the backend configuration. It should be used in place of the

Make sure that joblib works even when multiprocessing is not available, for instance with Pyodide https://github.com/joblib/joblib/pull/1256
Avoid unnecessary warnings when workers and main process delete the temporary memmap folder contents concurrently. https://github.com/joblib/joblib/pull/1263
Fix memory alignment bug for pickles containing numpy arrays. This is especially important when loading the pickle with
mmap_mode != Noneas the resulting
numpy.memmapobject would not be able to correct the misalignment without performing a memory copy. This bug would cause invalid computation and segmentation faults with native code that would directly access the underlying data buffer of a numpy array, for instance C/C++/Cython code compiled with older GCC versions or some old OpenBLAS written in platform specific assembly. https://github.com/joblib/joblib/pull/1254
Vendor cloudpickle 2.2.0 which adds support for PyPy 3.8+.
Vendor loky 3.3.0 which fixes several bugs including:
robustly forcibly terminating worker processes in case of a crash (https://github.com/joblib/joblib/pull/1269);
avoiding leaking worker processes in case of nested loky parallel calls;
reliability spawn the correct number of reusable workers.
Fix a security issue where
eval(pre_dispatch)could potentially run arbitrary code. Now only basic numerics are supported. https://github.com/joblib/joblib/pull/1327
Fix byte order inconsistency issue during deserialization using joblib.load in cross-endian environment: the numpy arrays are now always loaded to use the system byte order, independently of the byte order of the system that serialized the pickle. https://github.com/joblib/joblib/pull/1181

dask: avoid redundant scattering of large arguments to make a more efficient use of the network resources and avoid crashing dask with “OSError: [Errno 55] No buffer space available” or “ConnectionResetError: [Errno 104] connection reset by peer”. https://github.com/joblib/joblib/pull/1133
Make joblib.hash and joblib.Memory caching system compatible with numpy >= 1.20.0. Also make it explicit in the documentation that users should now expect to have their joblib.Memory cache invalidated when either joblib or a third party library involved in the cached values definition is upgraded. In particular, users updating joblib to a release that includes this fix will see their previous cache invalidated if they contained reference to numpy objects. https://github.com/joblib/joblib/pull/1136
Remove deprecated check_pickle argument in delayed. https://github.com/joblib/joblib/pull/903
Fix a spurious invalidation of Memory.cache’d functions called with Parallel under Jupyter or IPython. https://github.com/joblib/joblib/pull/1093
Bump vendored loky to 2.9.0 and cloudpickle to 1.6.0. In particular this fixes a problem to add compat for Python 3.9.
Fix a problem in the constructors of Parallel backends classes that inherit from the AutoBatchingMixin that prevented the dask backend to properly batch short tasks. https://github.com/joblib/joblib/pull/1062
Fix a problem in the way the joblib dask backend batches calls that would badly interact with the dask callable pickling cache and lead to wrong results or errors. https://github.com/joblib/joblib/pull/1055
Prevent a dask.distributed bug from surfacing in joblib’s dask backend during nested Parallel calls (due to joblib’s auto-scattering feature) https://github.com/joblib/joblib/pull/1061
Workaround for a race condition after Parallel calls with the dask backend that would cause low level warnings from asyncio coroutines: https://github.com/joblib/joblib/pull/1078
Make joblib work on Python 3 installation that do not ship with the lzma package in their standard library.
Drop support for Python 2 and Python 3.5. All objects in
joblib.format_stackare now deprecated and will be removed in joblib 0.16. Note that no deprecation warning will be raised for these objects Python < 3.7. https://github.com/joblib/joblib/pull/1018
Fix many bugs related to the temporary files and folder generated when automatically memory mapping large numpy arrays for efficient inter-process communication. In particular, this would cause PermissionError exceptions to be raised under Windows and large leaked files in /dev/shm under Linux in case of crash. https://github.com/joblib/joblib/pull/966
Make the dask backend collect results as soon as they complete leading to a performance improvement: https://github.com/joblib/joblib/pull/1025
Fix the number of jobs reported by
n_jobs=Nonecalled in a parallel backend context. https://github.com/joblib/joblib/pull/985
Upgraded vendored cloupickle to 1.4.1 and loky to 2.8.0. This allows for Parallel calls of dynamically defined functions with type annotations in particular.
Configure the loky workers’ environment to mitigate oversubsription with nested multi-threaded code in the following case:
allow for a suitable number of threads for numba (
enable Interprocess Communication for scheduler coordination when the nested code uses Threading Building Blocks (TBB) (
Fix a regression where the loky backend was not reusing previously spawned workers. https://github.com/joblib/joblib/pull/968
Improved the load balancing between workers to avoid stranglers caused by an excessively large batch size when the task duration is varying significantly (because of the combined use of
joblib.Memorywith a partially warmed cache for instance). https://github.com/joblib/joblib/pull/899
Add official support for Python 3.8: fixed protocol number in Hasher and updated tests.
Fix a deadlock when using the dask backend (when scattering large numpy arrays). https://github.com/joblib/joblib/pull/914

parallel_backend. It defaults to
cpu_count() // n_jobs. https://github.com/joblib/joblib/pull/940
Upgrade to cloudpickle 0.8.0
Add a non-regression test related to joblib issues #836 and #833, reporting that cloudpickle versions between 0.5.4 and 0.7 introduced a bug where global variables changes in a parent process between two calls to joblib.Parallel would not be propagated into the workers

Niels Zeilemaker and Olivier Grisel
Refactored joblib.Parallel to enable the registration of custom computational backends. https://github.com/joblib/joblib/pull/306 Note the API to register custom backends is considered experimental and subject to change without deprecation.
Joblib pickle format change: joblib.dump always create a single pickle file and joblib.dump/joblib.save never do any memory copy when writing/reading pickle files. Reading pickle files generated with joblib versions prior to 0.10 will be supported for a limited amount of time, we advise to regenerate them from scratch when convenient. joblib.dump and joblib.load also support pickle files compressed using various strategies: zlib, gzip, bz2, lzma and xz. Note that lzma and xz are only available with python >= 3.3. https://github.com/joblib/joblib/pull/260 for more details.

Revert back to the
forkstart method (instead of
forkserver) as the latter was found to cause crashes in interactive Python sessions.
Joblib hashing now uses the default pickle protocol (2 for Python 2 and 3 for Python 3). This makes it very unlikely to get the same hash for a given object under Python 2 and Python 3.
In particular, for Python 3 users, this means that the output of joblib.hash changes when switching from joblib 0.8.4 to 0.9.2 . We strive to ensure that the output of joblib.hash does not change needlessly in future versions of joblib but this is not officially guaranteed.
Joblib pickles generated with Python 2 can not be loaded with Python 3 and the same applies for joblib pickles generated with Python 3 and loaded with Python 2.
During the beta period 0.9.0b2 to 0.9.0b4, we experimented with a joblib serialization that aimed to make pickles serialized with Python 3 loadable under Python 2. Unfortunately this serialization strategy proved to be too fragile as far as the long-term maintenance was concerned (For example see https://github.com/joblib/joblib/pull/243). That means that joblib pickles generated with joblib 0.9.0bN can not be loaded under joblib 0.9.2. Joblib beta testers, who are the only ones likely to be affected by this, are advised to delete their joblib cache when they upgrade from 0.9.0bN to 0.9.2.
Fixed a bug with
joblib.hashthat used to return unstable values for strings and numpy.dtype instances depending on interning states.
Make joblib use the ‘forkserver’ start method by default under Python 3.4+ to avoid causing crash with 3rd party libraries (such as Apple vecLib / Accelerate or the GCC OpenMP runtime) that use an internal thread pool that is not reinitialized when a
forksystem call happens.

withblock) to re-use the same pool of workers across consecutive parallel calls.

This fix uses a queue.Queue datastructure in the failing test. This datastructure is thread-safe thanks to an internal Lock. This Lock instance not picklable hence cause the picklability check of delayed to check fail.
When using the threading backend, picklability is no longer required, hence this PRs give the user the ability to disable it on a case by case basis.
