Huggingface

LiteLLM supports the following types of Huggingface models:

Usage

Open In Colab

You need to tell LiteLLM when you're calling Huggingface. This is done by adding the "huggingface/" prefix to model, example completion(model="huggingface/<model_name>",...).

import os 
from litellm import completion

# [OPTIONAL] set env var
os.environ["HUGGINGFACE_API_KEY"] = "huggingface_api_key"

messages = [{ "content": "There's a llama in my garden 😱 What should I do?","role": "user"}]

# e.g. Call 'WizardLM/WizardCoder-Python-34B-V1.0' hosted on HF Inference endpoints
response = completion(
model="huggingface/WizardLM/WizardCoder-Python-34B-V1.0",
messages=messages,
api_base="https://my-endpoint.huggingface.cloud"
)

print(response)

Streaming

Open In Colab

You need to tell LiteLLM when you're calling Huggingface. This is done by adding the "huggingface/" prefix to model, example completion(model="huggingface/<model_name>",...).

import os 
from litellm import completion

# [OPTIONAL] set env var
os.environ["HUGGINGFACE_API_KEY"] = "huggingface_api_key"

messages = [{ "content": "There's a llama in my garden 😱 What should I do?","role": "user"}]

# e.g. Call 'facebook/blenderbot-400M-distill' hosted on HF Inference endpoints
response = completion(
model="huggingface/facebook/blenderbot-400M-distill",
messages=messages,
api_base="https://my-endpoint.huggingface.cloud",
stream=True
)

print(response)
for chunk in response:
print(chunk)

Embedding

LiteLLM supports Huggingface's text-embedding-inference format.

from litellm import embedding
import os
os.environ['HUGGINGFACE_API_KEY'] = ""
response = embedding(
model='huggingface/microsoft/codebert-base',
input=["good morning from litellm"]
)

Advanced

Setting API KEYS + API BASE

If required, you can set the api key + api base, set it in your os environment. Code for how it's sent

import os 
os.environ["HUGGINGFACE_API_KEY"] = ""
os.environ["HUGGINGFACE_API_BASE"] = ""

Viewing Log probs

Using decoder_input_details - OpenAI echo

The echo param is supported by OpenAI Completions - Use litellm.text_completion() for this

from litellm import text_completion
response = text_completion(
model="huggingface/bigcode/starcoder",
prompt="good morning",
max_tokens=10, logprobs=10,
echo=True
)

Models with Prompt Formatting

For models with special prompt templates (e.g. Llama2), we format the prompt to fit their template.

What if we don't support a model you need? You can also specify you're own custom prompt formatting, in case we don't have your model covered yet.

Does this mean you have to specify a prompt for all models? No. By default we'll concatenate your message content to make a prompt.

Default Prompt Template

def default_pt(messages):
return " ".join(message["content"] for message in messages)

Code for how prompt formats work in LiteLLM

Custom prompt templates

# Create your own custom prompt template works 
litellm.register_prompt_template(
model="togethercomputer/LLaMA-2-7B-32K",
roles={
"system": {
"pre_message": "[INST] <<SYS>>\n",
"post_message": "\n<</SYS>>\n [/INST]\n"
},
"user": {
"pre_message": "[INST] ",
"post_message": " [/INST]\n"
},
"assistant": {
"post_message": "\n"
}
}
)

def test_huggingface_custom_model():
model = "huggingface/togethercomputer/LLaMA-2-7B-32K"
response = completion(model=model, messages=messages, api_base="https://ecd4sb5n09bo4ei2.us-east-1.aws.endpoints.huggingface.cloud")
print(response['choices'][0]['message']['content'])
return response

Implementation Code

Deploying a model on huggingface

You can use any chat/text model from Hugging Face with the following steps:

  • Copy your model id/url from Huggingface Inference Endpoints
  • Set it as your model name
  • Set your HUGGINGFACE_API_KEY as an environment variable

Same as the OpenAI format, but also includes logprobs. See the code

FAQ

Does this support stop sequences?

Yes, we support stop sequences - and you can pass as many as allowed by Huggingface (or any provider!)

How do you deal with repetition penalty?

We map the presence penalty parameter in openai to the repetition penalty parameter on Huggingface. See code.
