python-kerasHow do I use Python's tf.keras.utils.get_file to retrieve a file?

Using tf.keras.utils.get_file is a convenient way to download a file from the internet and store it in the local file system.

Here is an example of how to use it:

import tensorflow as tf

# Download a file from a URL
file_name = tf.keras.utils.get_file('example.txt', 'https://www.example.com/example.txt')

# Print the file name

The output of this code is:


The tf.keras.utils.get_file function takes two arguments: filename and origin. filename is the name of the file you want to download, and origin is the URL of the file. If the file already exists in the local file system, it will not be downloaded again.

It is also possible to specify additional arguments such as extract, cache_dir, md5_hash, file_hash, hash_algorithm and archive_format.
