common.registry

Registry is central source of truth in MMF. Inspired from Redux’s concept of global store, Registry maintains mappings of various information to unique keys. Special functions in registry can be used as decorators to register different kind of classes.

Import the global registry object using

from mmf.common.registry import registry

class mmf.common.registry.Registry[source]

Class for registry object which acts as central source of truth for MMF

classmethod get(name, default=None, no_warning=False)[source]

Get an item from registry with key ‘name’

Parameters
  • name (string) – Key whose value needs to be retrieved.

  • default – If passed and key is not in registry, default value will be returned with a warning. Default: None

  • no_warning (bool) – If passed as True, warning when key doesn’t exist will not be generated. Useful for MMF’s internal operations. Default: False
