When I install Hugging Face Transformers and import “transformers” at the top, it tries to auto-install sentence-transformers when I run the Repl. There does not seem to be a way to avoid this, and sentence-transformers is never used. This causes a lot of bloat because installing PyTorch takes quite a while.
There should be an option to disable package auto-installs, or a fix so that it does not auto-install sentence-transformers when I import transformers.
Steps to reproduce:
- Make a new Python Repl
import transformersat the top.
- Run the Repl
