A Menpo Playground is an archived directory you can download that contains:
- A full isolated Python installation containing the Menpo Project with all its dependencies ready to go
- A set of notebooks that you can run immediately to see how to use Menpo
- Two command line tools,
menpocli), that can be used to locate bounding boxes and landmarks in challenging in-the-wild facial images
- Detailed documentation on how to use the provided tools
There is no installation procedure for a playground, just download, extract, and use. When you are done with it, just delete the folder.
A playground is great from newcomers to Menpo, or just for anyone needing a hassle-free standalone build of Menpo (say, to deploy on a server).
