How to convert python model to TensorFlow Lite

Updated 26 October 2021


TensorFlow is a powerful tool that help us to integrate python in Mobile app. I already wrote a blog about the TensorFlow implementation in iOS. Click here to Visit blog.

In this blog, I will show how to convert a model to .tflite. We assume that you have already created a model in Python.You have the following two options for using the converter:

  1. Python API (recommended): This makes it easier to convert models as part of the model development pipeline, apply optimisations, add metadata and has many more features.
  2. Command line: This only supports basic model conversion.

Let start:

1. Using Python: Suppose we have model in directory  fruits.

Note: you can execute this code from local or colab.

2. Using C
ommand: To execute the cmd you have to install TensorFlow with pip in your system. Here is the step to install TenserFlow.

Now run below command.

Visit git reference to know about command.
Note: TensorFlow not recommended this because it only supports basic model conversion.
