feed_overlap bug?

Hi there,

I'm wondering if the feed_overlap functionality was broken in a recent update or if I'm using it incorrectly. It seems like even with feed_overlap set to true, labeling tasks are only going to one session. I was seeing this with an html recipe, but I made this POC recipe using the classification view and it also seems broken:

import prodigy

@prodigy.recipe('Basic Classification')
def basic_classification():
    stream = [
            'text': 'text1',
            'label': 'label1'
            'text': 'text2',
            'label': 'label2'
        }, {
            'text': 'text3',
            'label': 'label3'

    return {
        "view_id": "classification",
        "dataset": 'basic_classification_dataset2',
        "stream": stream,
        "config": {
            'feed_overlap': True

(I also have "feed_overlap": true in my ~/.prodigy/prodigy.json just in case.) If I classify an annotation with session=austin, that question isn't showing up for session=bob. By extension, once I've answered all three annotations as austin, loading the page as bob gives me a "No tasks available" message.

Let me know if I'm doing something incorrectly!

Some more stats output, and verbose logging from Prodigy.

Logging; this is after I’d already answered 3 questions as austin and had started prodigy to answer them as bob. It seems like it’s filtering out the answered questions before the UI is even hit?

Thanks for the report – I’ll take a look! Btw, what happens when you set "feed_overlap": False?

Hi Austin,

Thanks for the reproduction case! I was able to find your issue and come up with a test/fix. Can you verify it by trying this updated recipe and confirming if it works for you?


import prodigy

def basic_classification():
    DB = prodigy.components.db.connect()

    def remove_builtin_filter(controller: prodigy.core.Controller):
        # HACK: remove the builtin RelatedSessionsFilter because it's not serializable
        controller.config["feed_filters"] = controller.config["feed_filters"][:-1]

    class WorkaroundFilter(dict):
        def __init__(self):
            self.session_hashes = {}

        def prepare_batch_filter(self, session_id: str):
            if session_id is not None and session_id not in self.session_hashes:
                self.session_hashes[session_id] = DB.get_task_hashes([session_id])

        def filter_task(self, task, session_id: str):
            hashes = self.session_hashes.get(session_id, set())
            return task[prodigy.util.TASK_HASH_ATTR] in hashes

    stream = [
        {"text": "text1", "label": "label1"},
        {"text": "text2", "label": "label2"},
        {"text": "text3", "label": "label3"},
    return {
        "on_load": remove_builtin_filter,
        "view_id": "classification",
        "dataset": "basic_classification_dataset7",
        "stream": stream,
        "config": {"feed_filters": [WorkaroundFilter()]},

You should be fine to use the WorkaroundFilter until the next release.

I am having the same issue. I tried the code above and ran the basic task with:
prodigy basic -F recipe.py

However, when I run
prodigy basic -F recipe.py

and goto localhost:8080, the UI displays “Oops, something went wrong :(”

and the logs show:
(base) ronalds-mbp:public-version-test u0115286$ prodigy basic -F recipe.py
Added dataset basic_classification_dataset7 to database SQLite.

Thanks for trying it out, I edited the example to resolve the issue you reported. Sadly it’s a bit tricky to disable the builtin feed filters without a new version of the library, so I got it wrong. Oops!

Try out the updated snippet and let me know if it still doesn’t work for you

@ines I did try that…I was hoping it was just a boolean bug of some sort, but no such luck :frowning:

@justindujardin thank you for that! that worked perfectly and I was able to incorporate the same things into my html recipe successfully.

@justindujardin The edit you made to the original fixed the issue. Thank you so much!
