CodeLlama 13B Python - GGUF


This repo contains GGUF format model files for Meta’s CodeLlama 13B Python.

About GGUF

GGUF is a new format introduced by the llama.cpp team on August 21st 2023. It is a replacement for GGML, which is no longer supported by llama.cpp.

The key benefit of GGUF is that it is a extensible, future-proof format which stores more information about the model as metadata. It also includes significantly improved tokenization code, including for the first time full support for special tokens. This should improve performance, especially with models that use new special tokens and implement custom prompt templates.

As of August 25th, here is a list of clients and libraries that are known to support GGUF:

  • llama.cpp
  • text-generation-webui, the most widely used web UI. Supports GGUF with GPU acceleration via the ctransformers backend - llama-cpp-python backend should work soon too.
  • KoboldCpp, now supports GGUF as of release 1.41! A powerful GGML web UI, with full GPU accel. Especially good for story telling.
  • LoLLMS Web UI, should now work, choose the c_transformers backend. A great web UI with many interesting features. Supports CUDA GPU acceleration.
  • ctransformers, now supports GGUF as of version 0.2.24! A Python library with GPU accel, LangChain support, and OpenAI-compatible AI server.
  • llama-cpp-python, supports GGUF as of version 0.1.79. A Python library with GPU accel, LangChain support, and OpenAI-compatible API server.
  • candle, added GGUF support on August 22nd. Candle is a Rust ML framework with a focus on performance, including GPU support, and ease of use.

The clients and libraries below are expecting to add GGUF support shortly:

  • LM Studio, should be updated by end August 25th.

Note: the above RAM figures assume no GPU offloading. If layers are offloaded to the GPU, this will reduce RAM usage and use VRAM instead.

How to run in llama.cpp

Make sure you are using llama.cpp from commit 6381d4e110bd0ec02843a60bbeb8b6fc37a9ace9 or later.

For compatibility with older versions of llama.cpp, or for use with third-party clients and libaries, please use GGML files instead.

./main -t 10 -ngl 32 -m codellama-13b-python.q4_K_M.gguf --color -c 4096 --temp 0.7 --repeat_penalty 1.1 -n -1 -p "### Instruction: Write a story about llamas\n### Response:"

Change -t 10 to the number of physical CPU cores you have. For example if your system has 8 cores/16 threads, use -t 8.

Change -ngl 32 to the number of layers to offload to GPU. Remove it if you don’t have GPU acceleration.

Change -c 4096 to the desired sequence length for this model. For extended sequence models - eg 8K, 16K, 32K - the necessary RoPE scaling parameters are read from the GGUF file and set by llama.cpp automatically.

If you want to have a chat-style conversation, replace the -p <PROMPT> argument with -i -ins

For other parameters and how to use them, please refer to the llama.cpp documentation

Thanks, and how to contribute.

Thanks to the team!

I’ve had a lot of people ask if they can contribute. I enjoy providing models and helping people, and would love to be able to spend even more time doing it, as well as expanding into new projects like fine tuning/training.

If you’re able and willing to contribute it will be most gratefully received and will help me to keep providing more models, and to start work on new AI projects.

Donaters will get priority support on any and all AI/LLM/model questions and requests, access to a private Discord room, plus other benefits.

Special thanks to: Aemon Algiz.

Original model card: Meta’s CodeLlama 13B Python

Code Llama

Code Llama is a collection of pretrained and fine-tuned generative text models ranging in scale from 7 billion to 34 billion parameters. This is the repository for the 13B Python specialist version in the Hugging Face Transformers format. This model is designed for general code synthesis and understanding. Links to other models can be found in the index at the bottom.

Model Use

To use this model, please make sure to install transformers from main until the next version is released:

pip install git+ accelerate

Model capabilities:

  • Code completion.
  • Infilling.
  • Instructions / chat.
  • Python specialist.

Model Details

*Note: Use of this model is governed by the Meta license. Meta developed and publicly released the Code Llama family of large language models (LLMs).

Model Developers Meta

Variations Code Llama comes in three model sizes, and three variants:

  • Code Llama: base models designed for general code synthesis and understanding
  • Code Llama - Python: designed specifically for Python
  • Code Llama - Instruct: for instruction following and safer deployment

All variants are available in sizes of 7B, 13B and 34B parameters.

This repository contains the Python version of the 13B parameters model.

Input Models input text only.

Output Models generate text only.

Model Architecture Code Llama is an auto-regressive language model that uses an optimized transformer architecture.

Model Dates Code Llama and its variants have been trained between January 2023 and July 2023.

Status This is a static model trained on an offline dataset. Future versions of Code Llama - Instruct will be released as we improve model safety with community feedback.

License A custom commercial license is available at: Meta AI - Error

Research Paper More information can be found in the paper “Code Llama: Open Foundation Models for Code”.

Intended Use

Intended Use Cases Code Llama and its variants is intended for commercial and research use in English and relevant programming languages. The base model Code Llama can be adapted for a variety of code synthesis and understanding tasks, Code Llama - Python is designed specifically to handle the Python programming language, and Code Llama - Instruct is intended to be safer to use for code assistant and generation applications.

Out-of-Scope Uses Use in any manner that violates applicable laws or regulations (including trade compliance laws). Use in languages other than English. Use in any other way that is prohibited by the Acceptable Use Policy and Licensing Agreement for Code Llama and its variants.

Hardware and Software

Training Factors We used custom training libraries. The training and fine-tuning of the released models have been performed Meta’s Research Super Cluster.

Carbon Footprint In aggregate, training all 9 Code Llama models required 400K GPU hours of computation on hardware of type A100-80GB (TDP of 350-400W). Estimated total emissions were 65.3 tCO2eq, 100% of which were offset by Meta’s sustainability program.

Training Data

All experiments reported here and the released models have been trained and fine-tuned using the same data as Llama 2 with different weights (see Section 2 and Table 1 in the research paper for details).

Evaluation Results

See evaluations for the main models and detailed ablations in Section 3 and safety evaluations in Section 4 of the research paper.

Ethical Considerations and Limitations

Code Llama and its variants are a new technology that carries risks with use. Testing conducted to date has been in English, and has not covered, nor could it cover all scenarios. For these reasons, as with all LLMs, Code Llama’s potential outputs cannot be predicted in advance, and the model may in some instances produce inaccurate or objectionable responses to user prompts. Therefore, before deploying any applications of Code Llama, developers should perform safety testing and tuning tailored to their specific applications of the model.
