Elyra is a set of AI-centric extensions to JupyterLab Notebooks.

Elyra currently includes:

  • Notebook Pipelines visual editor
  • Ability to run notebooks as batch jobs
  • Reusable Code Snippets
  • Hybrid runtime support (based on Jupyter Enterprise Gateway)
  • Python script execution capabilities within the editor
  • Python script navigation using auto-generated outlines using Table of Contents
  • Notebook navigation using auto-generated Table of Contents
  • Notebook versioning based on Git integration
  • Reusable configuration and editor for runtimes


The Elyra Getting Started Guide includes more details on these features.

Try Elyra

Using Binder

You can try out some of Elyra features using the My Binder service.

Click on a link below to try Elyra, on a sandbox environment, without having to install anything.

  • Launch latest stable version (Latest stable version - see changelog for recent updates)
  • Launch latest development version (Development version - expect longer image load time due to just-in-time build)

Using Docker

You can also try Elyra by running one of the docker images from Docker Hub:

  • elyra/elyra:latest has the latest released version installed.
  • elyra/elyra:x.y.z has a specific version installed.
  • elyra/elyra:dev is automatically re-built each time a change is committed to the master branch.

The command below starts the most recent development build in a clean environment:

docker run -it -p 8888:8888 elyra/elyra:dev jupyter lab --debug

To make a local directory containing your Notebooks (e.g. ${HOME}/opensource/jupyter-notebooks/) available in your docker container, you can use a mount command similar to the following:

docker run -it -p 8888:8888 -v ${HOME}/opensource/jupyter-notebooks/:/home/jovyan/work -w /home/jovyan/work elyra/elyra:dev jupyter lab --debug

These should produce output similar to that below, where you can then find the URL to be used to access Elyra in your local browser.

    To access the notebook, open this file in a browser:
    Or copy and paste one of these URLs:


Elyra can be installed via PyPi:

Prerequisites :

Optional :

JupyterLab support

  • JupyterLab 1.x is supported on Elyra 0.10.x and below

via PyPi:

  • JupyterLab 2.x is supported on Elyra 1.0.0 and above

via PyPi:

pip install --upgrade elyra && jupyter lab build

Note: Ubuntu and CentOS users may need to use pip3 install elyra

using Conda:

conda install -c conda-forge elyra && jupyter lab build

Verify Installation

jupyter serverextension list

Should output:

config dir: /usr/local/etc/jupyter
    elyra  enabled
    - Validating...
      elyra <VERSION> OK
    jupyterlab  enabled
    - Validating...
      jupyterlab 2.2.2 OK
    jupyterlab_git  enabled
    - Validating...
      jupyterlab_git 0.21.1 OK
    nbdime  enabled
    - Validating...
      nbdime 2.0.0 OK
jupyter labextension list

Should output:

Known labextensions:
   app dir: /.../share/jupyter/lab
        @elyra/code-snippet-extension <VERSION>  enabled  OK*
        @elyra/metadata-extension <VERSION>  enabled  OK*
        @elyra/pipeline-editor-extension <VERSION>  enabled  OK*
        @elyra/python-editor-extension <VERSION>  enabled  OK*
        @elyra/theme-extension <VERSION>  enabled  OK*

        nbdime-jupyterlab v2.0.0  enabled  OK

NOTE: If you don't see the Elyra server extension enabled, you may need to explicitly enable it with jupyter serverextension enable elyra

Configuring Runtimes for Pipeline execution

The Elyra Pipeline editor delegates execution of pipelines to remote runtimes. Configure these external runtimes as documented in Runtime Configuration.

Starting Elyra

After verifying Elyra has been installed, start Elyra with:

jupyter lab
