Tap into the power of causality by transforming data into interactive graphs and applications
Dara is a dynamic application framework designed for creating interactive web apps with ease, all in pure Python. Over the past two years, Dara has fueled the development of hundreds of apps, now widely used and appreciated by both our customers and our in-house teams!
To get started with Dara, you can use the
create-dara-app CLI tool to create a new app.
pip install create-dara-app
You can also use
pipx to install the CLI tool in an isolated environment.
Then simply run the following command to create a new app.
By default the CLI will attempt to scaffold your project with
poetry but will fall back to
poetry is not present. This can be overriden with
--packaging pip or
--packaging poetry flag.
After the project is created, you can run it with:
cd my-dara-app # with poetry installation poetry run dara start # with pip installation make sure to activate the new virtual environment source .venv/bin/activate dara start
pip installation uses PEP 660
pyproject.toml-based editable installs which require
pip >= 21.3 and
setuptools >= 64.0.0. You can upgrade both with:
python -m pip install --upgrade pip pip install --user --upgrade setuptools
