Help make zamba better

zamba is an open source project, which means you can help make it better!

Develop the GitHub repository

To get involved, check out the GitHub code repository. There you can find open issues with comments and links to help you along.

zamba uses continuous integration and test-driven development to ensure that we always have a working project. So what are you waiting for? git going!

Installation for development

To install zamba for development, you need to clone the git repository and then install the cloned version of the library for local development.

To install for development:

$ git clone
$ cd zamba
$ pip install -r requirements-dev.txt

If your contribution is to the DensePose model, you will need to install the additional dependencies with:

$ pip install -e .[densepose]

Running the zamba test suite

The included Makefile contains code that uses pytest to run all tests in zamba/tests.

The command is (from the project root):

$ make tests

For DensePose related tests, the command is:

$ make densepose-tests

Submit additional training videos

If you have additional labeled videos that may be useful for improving the basic models that ship with zamba, we'd love to hear from you! You can get in touch at
