Using conda:

$ conda install -c conda-forge ipyleaflet

Using pip:

$ pip install ipyleaflet
$ jupyter nbextension enable --py --sys-prefix ipyleaflet  # can be skipped for
notebook 5.3 and above

If you have JupyterLab, you will also need to install the JupyterLab extension:

$ jupyter labextension install jupyter-leaflet

Some users have found that the jupyterlab-manager is also required in jupyterlab if the map does not display.

$ jupyter labextension install @jupyter-widgets/jupyterlab-manager

Installation from sources

For a development installation (requires npm):

$ git clone https://github.com/jupyter-widgets/ipyleaflet.git
$ cd ipyleaflet
$ pip install -e .
$ jupyter nbextension install --py --symlink --sys-prefix ipyleaflet
$ jupyter nbextension enable --py --sys-prefix ipyleaflet

Note for developers: the --symlink argument on Linux or OS X allows one to modify the JavaScript code in-place. This feature is not available with Windows.
