Welcome to Sloth’s documentation!

This is the documentation of Sloth. Sloth’s purpose is to provide a versatile tool for various labeling tasks in the context of computer vision research. Since there are so many different label formats and requirements out there, we concluded that is virtually impossible to build the one label tool sufficient to handle all labeling tasks. Therefore, this project can be seen rather as a framework and set of standard components to quickly configure a label tool specificly tailored to ones needs.

In this documentation we will go over some of the key concepts of Sloth, how to configure Sloth using the standard components provided in the package, and finally how to go further and write custom visualization items and label format containers to deal with specific labeling needs.


Please provide feedback to us on this document and Sloth in general! We won’t be able to incorporate your required features if you do not talk to us. Also, use the bug tracker at Of course, pull requests are always welcome!
