Is there any way to train a model directly from SpaCy without using Prodigy after annotation?

We are using Prodigy at the edge level where we can't use Prodigy or disclose the license. Therefore, we need to train the model directly from SpaCy after exporting the annotations from the database. Is there any way to do this?

Hi @dhavalv83,

Of course! In fact, it is a recommended workflow for more complex training scenarios. You can export the data directly to spaCy DocBin format using data-to-spacy command and then you can train directly with spaCy train.
To makes things easier, prodigy-to-spacy will also generate the training config for spaCy that you can of course customize if needed.
