How to save everything in one checkpoint?

With this code i have error with accelerator.get_state_dict(optimizer) so i guess it is not how it is intended to work, still i cant find example what is intended way.

def save_checkpoint(model_state_dict, optimizer_state_dict,
                    samples, hp, checkpoint_path, accelerator):
    checkpoint = {
        'model_state_dict': model_state_dict,
        'optimizer_state_dict': optimizer_state_dict,
        'samples': samples,
        'cuda_rng_state_all': torch.cuda.get_rng_state_all(),
        'random_rng_state': torch.random.get_rng_state(),
        'hp': hp,
        'sha': git.Repo(search_parent_directories=True).head.object.hexsha,
    }, checkpoint_path)

                samples, hp, args.checkpoint_path, accelerator)

You should just use accelerator.save_state.

To add in the other items you want to save, do accelerator.register_for_checkpointing({...}) with that dictionary containing everything else, such as the hyperparams, sha, and samples. (As the RNG states are automatically saved already through save_state).

See the docs for more info:

Hmmm, seems like i cant just save any dict, but need special object with defined methods, and it doesnt sound like very convenient.
Any better way around?
