CircleCI PyPI version Coverage Status svg


Krisk bring Echarts to Python Data Science Ecosystem, and helpful tools for high level statistical interactive visualization.


  • Python 3.5 (Python 2.7 should be supported, haven't test it yet)
  • Jupyter Notebook 4.2.x
  • Pandas 0.18.x
  • Echarts 3.2.1 (built-in)


pip install jupyter pandas krisk
jupyter nbextension install --py krisk --sys-prefix
jupyter nbextension enable  --py krisk --sys-prefix


What It Does

  • Chart Integration with Jupyter Notebook, widgets, and Dashboard.
  • Statistical interactive visualization
  • Ability backed by Echarts (Toolbox, Transition, Tooltip, etc.)

What It Doesn't Do

Krisk won't implement all features of Echarts. For more advanced usage, Krisk users can use JSON option (or HTML) output produced by Krisk to optimize in Javascript.

Only basic charts are supported for explanation visualization. The plan will support:

  • More complex line, bar, scatter, and histogram.
  • Geoscatter plot
  • Time Series

Of course, contributions are welcome to support all chart types and advanced features.

Motivation for Another Visualization Library

Krisk is targeted for building interactive dashboard application on top of two key components of Jupyter framework, ipywidgets and Jupyter Dashboard.

Krisk is also act as tool to support reproducible chart by utilizing pandas DataFrame as data input.
