Stable Horde is a powerful tool that utilizes AI technology to generate high-quality images. It is a crowdsourced and distributed cluster of Stable Diffusion workers that provides a client interface that requires no installation and no technical expertise.
How does it work?
The tool uses a "first in/first out" queue system where requests are prioritized according to the amount of Kudos the requestor has. When a request has multiple generations required, it is split into multiple jobs by the horde. Any joined workers periodically check-in to the horde and request a job to do. The horde sends them the first available request they can fulfill by order of kudos-priority, respecting the worker's wishes for specific workers who have priority.
The worker generates the job's prompt and submits it back to the horde. Once all the component jobs of a request have been submitted, the horde marks the request as "Done" and requestor can at any point check the status of their waiting requests and retrieve the results, even if they're not "done".
The tool also supports multiple models and allows workers to turn off their worker whenever they want. The workers are also rewarded with Kudos for providing constant processing power and generating images. The tool is perfect for people who want to contribute to the horde for many reasons such as providing constant processing power for tools they've built on top of Stable Diffusion or KoboldAI, such as video games, chat bots or software plugins, accumulating Kudos so that when it's time to generate their own requests they can get them done faster, warm their room productively, and for those who are just nice people and want to support this endeavor.
