A JupyterLab extension for rendering Plotly Dash apps as a separate window in JupyterLab 🎉

Note:: This extension does not currently support Windows or Python 2


  • JupyterLab 1.0.0
  • Dash


The jupyterlab-dash library requires both a Python package and a JupyterLab extension.

First, install the Python package using either pip...

$ pip install "jupyterlab>=1.0" jupyterlab-dash==0.1.0a3

or conda (but not both!).

$ conda install -c plotly -c defaults -c conda-forge "jupyterlab>=1.0" jupyterlab-dash=0.1.0a3

Then, install the JupyterLab extension. v6.17.1 of node works, and node 8.x.x or 10+ should also work.

$ jupyter labextension install jupyterlab-dash@0.1.0-alpha.3

Development Installation

If you'd like to install jupyterlab-dash for development

$ git clone
$ cd jupyterlab-dash

# Install Python package
$ pip install -e .

# Install Javascript dependencies
$ npm install # or yarn

# Build JupyterLab extension
$ npm run build # or yarn build
$ jupyter labextension link .

To rebuild the JupyterLab extension:

$ npm run build
$ jupyter lab build

To rebuild the JupyterLab extension automatically as the source changes:

# In one terminal tab, watch the jupyterlab-dash directory
$ npm run watch # or yarn watch

# In another terminal tab, run jupyterlab with the watch flag
$ jupyter lab --watch


import jupyterlab_dash
import dash
import dash_html_components as html

viewer = jupyterlab_dash.AppViewer()

app = dash.Dash(__name__)

app.layout = html.Div('Hello World')
