NumPy vs Metaflow: What are the differences?
Developers describe NumPy as "Fundamental package for scientific computing with Python". Besides its obvious scientific uses, NumPy can also be used as an efficient multi-dimensional container of generic data. Arbitrary data-types can be defined. This allows NumPy to seamlessly and speedily integrate with a wide variety of databases. On the other hand, Metaflow is detailed as "Build and manage real-life data science projects with ease". It is a human-friendly Python library that helps scientists and engineers build and manage real-life data science projects. It was originally developed at Netflix to boost productivity of data scientists who work on a wide variety of projects from classical statistics to state-of-the-art deep learning.
NumPy and Metaflow can be primarily classified as "Data Science" tools.
Some of the features offered by NumPy are:
- a powerful N-dimensional array object
- sophisticated (broadcasting) functions
- tools for integrating C/C++ and Fortran code
On the other hand, Metaflow provides the following key features:
- End-to-end ML Platform
- Model with your favorite tools
- Powered by the AWS cloud
NumPy and Metaflow are both open source tools. NumPy with 13.5K GitHub stars and 4.44K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Metaflow with 3.18K GitHub stars and 230 GitHub forks.
