Stand-alone OpenNMT

Hi Colleagues!

If I want to have a stand-alone / compiled version of OpenNMT that does not require any manual preparations / installations on the target machine, and no Internet connection, what are my options to achieve this?

Note: My current implementation depends on a Localhost REST API which is perfect for most cases, but not for the case I mentioned above as the client wants be able to move the whole thing as one package without any prior (manual) preparation or installation of dependencies.

Many thanks for insights!

Kind regards,


Is Docker pre-installed or is it at least a dependency that is acceptable to install? If yes, that’s a good way to package complex applications like OpenNMT.

Thanks, Guillaume, for the tip about Docker. I will make sure I use it for other cases. As for the case related to this post, I do not think Docker will be installed.
