Check Chart settings chapter for more details.


Place the following code into a notebook cell in order to install ipyvizzu (visit Installation chapter for more options and details).

import micropip

await micropip.install("ipyvizzu")


Try ipyvizzu in JupyterLite with the following sample.

# import pandas, js, asyncio, StringIO and ipyvizzu

import pandas as pd
import js, asyncio
from io import StringIO
from ipyvizzu import Chart, Data, Config, Style, DisplayTarget

# initialize Chart

chart = Chart(
    width="640px", height="360px"
)  # or Chart(width="640px", height="360px", display=DisplayTarget.ACTUAL)
# chart = Chart(width="640px", height="360px", display=DisplayTarget.BEGIN)
# chart = Chart(width="640px", height="360px", display=DisplayTarget.END)
# chart = Chart(width="640px", height="360px", display=DisplayTarget.MANUAL)

# add data to Chart
# download data from
# ""
# and place it in your JupyterLite workspace

# add style to Chart

chart.animate(Style({"title": {"fontSize": 35}}))

# display Chart with show or _repr_html_ method (display=DisplayTarget.MANUAL)
