Working with Bokeh#

Open in Colab

Bokeh is a Python library for creating interactive visualizations for modern web browsers.

You can log and display Bokeh charts as interactive HTML in the Neptune app.

Bokeh figure in Neptune

See in Neptune  Example script 

Before you start#


To follow the guide without any setup, run the Colab example.

Bokeh logging example#

  1. Import Neptune and start a run:

    import neptune
    run = neptune.init_run()  # (1)!
    1. If you haven't set up your credentials, you can log anonymously: neptune.init_run(api_token=neptune.ANONYMOUS_API_TOKEN, project="common/bokeh-support")
  2. Create a sample figure:

    import numpy as np
    from bokeh.plotting import figure
    N = 500
    x = np.linspace(0, 10, N)
    y = np.linspace(0, 10, N)
    xx, yy = np.meshgrid(x, y)
    d = np.sin(xx) * np.cos(yy)
    p = figure(tooltips=[("x", "$x"), ("y", "$y"), ("value", "@image")])
    p.x_range.range_padding = p.y_range.range_padding = 0
    # Pass a vector of image data as the 'image' argument
        image=[d], x=0, y=0, dw=10, dh=10, palette="Spectral11", level="image"
    p.grid.grid_line_width = 0.5
  3. Upload the interactive figure:

  4. To stop the connection to Neptune and sync all data, call the stop() method:


    Using stop() is especially important in Jupyter Notebook or other interactive sessions, as the connection otherwise remains open until the session ends completely.

  5. To open the run, click the Neptune link that appears in the console output.

  6. Find the logged images in the All Metadata section.
