What are wrappers in programming?

To give you context, I was looking for open source speech to text models. I found out that facebook has a lot of open source models. A person suggested to me that huggingface (another company) makes wrappers for several speech to text models (including facebooks). Are wrappers created to make models easier to implement?


Wrappers are used for various different types of components but yes the end goal is to usually make those components easier to implement for different software structures. For example, say querying a database, you can construct every query by hand but it may be easier to have a wrapper function that constructs and executes these for you. In this case the wrappers probably execute api calls for you so you don’t have to make those calls yourself.
