Frequently Asked Questions

How do I sync my notebook and all of its data and models to S3 as a package?

p = quilt3.Package()
p.set_dir(".", ".")
p.push("USR/PKG", message="MSG", registry="s3://BUCKET")

Use a .quiltignore file for more control over which files set_dir() includes.

How does Quilt versioning relate to S3 object versioning?

Quilt packages are one level of abstraction above S3 object versions. Object versions track mutations to a single file, whereas a quilt package references a collection files and assigns this collection a unique version.

It is strongly recommended that you enable object versioning on the S3 buckets that you push Quilt packages to. Object versioning ensures that mutations to every object are tracked, and provides some protection against deletion.

Where are the Quilt 2 packages?

Visit legacy.quiltdata.com and use quilt on PyPI.

Does quilt3 collect anonymous usage statistics?

Yes, to find bugs and prioritize features.

You can disable anonymous usage collection with an environment variable:

$ export QUILT_DISABLE_USAGE_METRICS=true

Or call quilt3.disable_telemetry() to persistently disable anonymous usage statistics.

Can I turn off TQDM progress bars for log files?

Yes:

$ export QUILT_MINIMIZE_STDOUT=true
