skrl is an open-source modular library for reinforcement learning written in Python. It is designed with a focus on readability, simplicity, and transparency of algorithm implementations. In addition to supporting environments that use the traditional OpenAI Gym interface, skrl allows loading, configuring, and operating NVIDIA Isaac Gym environments. This enables the parallel training of several agents with adjustable scopes, which may or may not share resources, in the same execution. The library is built on top of PyTorch and JAX, and it is highly modular and flexible.
