High level network definitions with pre-trained weights in TensorFlow (tested with >= 1.2.0).
Applicability. Many people already have their own ML workflows, and want to put a new model on their workflows. TensorNets can be easily plugged together because it is designed as simple functional interfaces without custom classes.
Manageability. Models are written in tf.contrib.layers, which is lightweight like PyTorch and Keras, and allows for ease of accessibility to every weight and end-point. Also, it is easy to deploy and expand a collection of pre-processing and pre-trained weights.
Readability. With recent TensorFlow APIs, more factoring and less indenting can be possible. For example, all the inception variants are implemented as about 500 lines of code in TensorNets while 2000+ lines in official TensorFlow models.
