Tensorflow Problem Overview
How do I install TensorFlow's tensorboard?
Solution 1 - Tensorflow
The steps to install Tensorflow are here: https://www.tensorflow.org/install/
For example, on Linux for CPU-only (no GPU), you would type this command:
pip install -U pip
pip install tensorflow
pip install tensorboard
Solution 2 - Tensorflow
which tensorboard in your terminal. It should exist if you installed with
pip as mentioned in the tensorboard README (although the documentation doesn't tell you that you can now launch tensorboard without doing anything else).
You need to give it a log directory. If you are in the directory where you saved your graph, you can launch it from your terminal with something like:
tensorboard --logdir .
or more generally:
tensorboard --logdir /path/to/log/directory
for any log directory.
Then open your favorite web browser and type in
localhost:6006 to connect.
Solution 3 - Tensorflow
If your Tensorflow install is located here:
then the python command to launch Tensorboard is:
$ python /usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/tensorflow/tensorboard/tensorboard.py --logdir=/home/user/Documents/.../logdir
The installation from pip allows you to use:
$ tensorboard --logdir=/home/user/Documents/.../logdir
Solution 4 - Tensorflow
TensorBoard isn't a separate component. TensorBoard comes packaged with TensorFlow.
Solution 5 - Tensorflow
It may be helpful to make an alias for it.
Install and find your tensorboard location:
pip install tensorboard
pip show tensorboard
Add the following alias in .bashrc:
alias tensorboard='python pathShownByPip/tensorboard/main.py'
Open another terminal or run exec bash.
For Windows users, cd into
pathShownByPip\tensorboard and run
python main.py from there.
For Python 3.x, use
pip3 instead of
pip, and don't forget to use
python3 in the alias.
Solution 6 - Tensorflow
Adding this just for the sake of completeness of this question (some questions may get closed as duplicate of this one).
I usually use user mode for pip ie.
pip install --user even if instructions assume root mode. That way, my tensorboard installation was in
~/.local/bin/tensorboard, and it was not in my path (which shouldn't be ideal either). So I was not able to access it.
In this case, running
sudo ln -s ~/.local/bin/tensorboard /usr/bin
should fix it.
Solution 7 - Tensorflow
pip install tensorflow.tensorboard # install tensorboard
pip show tensorflow.tensorboard
# Location: c:\users\<name>\appdata\roaming\python\python35\site-packages
# now just run tensorboard as:
python c:\users\<name>\appdata\roaming\python\python35\site-packages\tensorboard\main.py --logdir=<logidr>
Solution 8 - Tensorflow
If you're using the anaconda distribution of Python, then simply do:
$❯ conda install -c conda-forge tensorboard
$❯ conda install -c anaconda tensorboard
Also, you can have a look at various builds by search the packages repo by:
$❯ anaconda search -t conda tensorboard
which would list the channels and the corresponding builds, the supported OS, Python versions etc.,
Solution 9 - Tensorflow
If you installed TensorFlow using
pip, then the location of TensorBoard can be retrieved by issuing the command
which tensorboard on the terminal. You can then edit the TensorBoard file, if necessary.
Solution 10 - Tensorflow
pip package you are looking for is
tensorflow-tensorboard developed by Google.
Solution 11 - Tensorflow
It is better not to mix up the virtual environments or perform installation on the root directory. Steps I took for hassle free installation are as below. I used conda for installing all my dependencies instead of pip. I'm answering with extra details, because when I tried to install tensor board and tensor flow on my root env, it messed up.
- Create a virtual env
conda create --name my_env python=3.6
- Activate virtual environment
source activate my_env
Install basic required modules
conda install pandas
conda install tensorflow
Install tensor board
conda install -c condo-forge tensor board
Hope that helps
Solution 12 - Tensorflow
I have a local install of tensorflow 1.15.0 (with tensorboard obviously included) on MacOS.
For me, the path to the relevant file within my user directory is Library/Python/3.7/lib/python/site-packages/tensorboard/main.py. So,
which does not work for me, but you have to look for the file named main.py, which is weird since it apparently is named something else for other users.
