What’s New in MMOCR 1.x¶
Here are some highlights of MMOCR 1.x compared to 0.x.
New engines. MMOCR 1.x is based on MMEngine, which provides a general and powerful runner that allows more flexible customizations and significantly simplifies the entrypoints of high-level interfaces.
Unified interfaces. As a part of the OpenMMLab 2.0 projects, MMOCR 1.x unifies and refactors the interfaces and internal logics of train, testing, datasets, models, evaluation, and visualization. All the OpenMMLab 2.0 projects share the same design in those interfaces and logics to allow the emergence of multi-task/modality algorithms.
Cross project calling. Benefiting from the unified design, you can use the models implemented in other OpenMMLab projects, such as MMDet. We provide an example of how to use MMDetection’s Mask R-CNN through
MMDetWrapper. Check our documents for more details. More wrappers will be released in the future.
Stronger visualization. We provide a series of useful tools which are mostly based on brand-new visualizers. As a result, it is more convenient for the users to explore the models and datasets now.
More documentation and tutorials. We add a bunch of documentation and tutorials to help users get started more smoothly.
One-stop Dataset Preparaion. Multiple datasets are instantly ready with only one line of command, via our Dataset Preparer.
projects/: We now introduce
projects/folder, where some experimental features, frameworks and models can be placed, only needed to satisfy the minimum requirement on the code quality. Everyone is welcome to post their implementation of any great ideas in this folder! Learn more from our example project.
More models. MMOCR 1.0 supports more tasks and more state-of-the-art models!
