[Edit]: These builds (since 19th of Dec 2016) now have GPU support. If this causes any issues let me know and I’ll create 2 separate binaries.
I will be attempting to host nightly builds of XGBoost. The full list of builds is here:
Any missing days mean a failure of the build script on that night.
Installing the Python Wrapper
Please follow these instructions to prepare XGBoost for use with Python. I am placing xgboost in a directory called xgboost_install_dir but this can be anything.
- git clone https://github.com/dmlc/xgboost.git xgboost_install_dir
- copy libxgboost.dll (downloaded from this page) into the xgboost_install_dir\python-package\xgboost\ directory
- cd xgboost_install_dir\python-package\
- python setup.py install
Using the Python Library
import xgboost xr = xgboost.XGBRegressor() xr.fit(X, y) xr.predict(X_test)
