Hydra is a lightweight framework that simplifies the development of Python applications, especially complex ones, by introducing the ability to compose and override configurations. Hydra makes it easier to add functionality to projects to accommodate new use cases and requirements without having to rewrite significant portions of code. Hydra also dramatically reduces the need for some forms of boilerplate code that are common in complex applications, such as defining command-line flags, manipulating configuration files, and configuring logging. Hydra’s flexible approach to developing, creating, and maintaining code and configurations can help speed the development of complex applications in various fields, including machine learning research.
