MLX Examples

This repo contains a variety of standalone examples using the MLX framework.

The MNIST example is a good starting point to learn how to use MLX.

Some more useful examples are listed below.

Text Models

  • MLX LM a package for LLM text generation, fine-tuning, and more.
  • Transformer language model training.
  • Minimal examples of large scale text generation with LLaMA, Mistral, and more in the LLMs directory.
  • A mixture-of-experts (MoE) language model with Mixtral 8x7B.
  • Parameter efficient fine-tuning with LoRA or QLoRA.
  • Text-to-text multi-task Transformers with T5.
  • Bidirectional language understanding with BERT.

Image Models

Audio Models

Multimodal models

  • Joint text and image embeddings with CLIP.
  • Text generation from image and text inputs with LLaVA.

Other Models

  • Semi-supervised learning on graph-structured data with GCN.
  • Real NVP normalizing flow for density estimation and sampling.

Hugging Face

Note: You can now directly download a few converted checkpoints from the MLX Community organization on Hugging Face. We encourage you to join the community and contribute new models.
