Publish benchmark results#

Benchopt allows you to publish your benchmark results to the Benchopt Benchmarks website with one command benchopt publish.

The publish command will send your results to GitHub by opening a pull-request on the Benchopt results repository. Once the pull-request is merged it will appear automatically online.

Workflow example:

$ git clone
$ benchopt run ./benchmark_logreg_l2
$ benchopt publish ./benchmark_logreg_l2 -t <GITHUB_TOKEN>

You see that to publish you need to specify the value of <GITHUB_TOKEN>. This GitHub access token contains 40 alphanumeric characters that allows GitHub to identify you and use your account. After getting your personal token as explained below the last line will read something like:

$ benchopt publish ./benchmark_logreg_l2 -t 1gdgfej73i72if0852a685ejbhb1930ch496cda4


Your GitHub access token is a sensitive information. Keep it secret as it is as powerful as your GitHub password!

Let’s now look how to create your personal GitHub token.

Obtaining a GitHub token#

Visit settings/tokens and click on generate new token. Then create a token named benchopt, ticking the repo box as shown below:


Then click on generate token and copy this token of 40 characters in a secure location. Note that the token can be stored in a config file for benchopt using benchopt config set github_token <TOKEN>. More info on config files can be found in config_doc.
