Try out in mybinder: Binder

3d plotting for Python in the Jupyter notebook based on IPython widgets using WebGL.

Ipyvolume currenty can

  • Do volume rendering.
  • Create scatter plots (up to ~1 million glyphs).
  • Create quiver plots (like scatter, but with an arrow pointing in a particular direction).
  • Render in the Jupyter notebook, or create a standalone html page (or snippet to embed in your page).
  • Render in stereo, for virtual reality with Google Cardboard.
  • Animate in d3 style, for instance if the x coordinates or color of a scatter plots changes.
  • Animations / sequences, all scatter/quiver plot properties can be a list of arrays, which can represent time snapshots.
  • Stylable (although still basic)
  • Integrates with
  • ipywidgets for adding gui controls (sliders, button etc), see an example at the documentation homepage
  • bokeh by linking the selection
  • bqplot by linking the selection

Ipyvolume will probably, but not yet:

  • Render labels in latex.
  • Do isosurface rendering.
  • Do selections using mouse or touch.
  • Show a custom popup on hovering over a glyph.

Installation

For all cases make sure ipywidgets is enabled after installation, if not already, e.g.:

$ jupyter nbextension enable --py --sys-prefix widgetsnbextension

To install use pip:

$ pip install ipyvolume
$ jupyter nbextension enable --py --sys-prefix ipyvolume

To install use pip (as non-admin):

$ pip install ipyvolume --user
$ jupyter nbextension enable --py --user ipyvolume

Or with anaconda/conda:

$ pip install ipywidgets
$ # or pip install ipywidgets~=7.0.0b1 # for github master
$ conda install -c conda-forge ipyvolume

For a development installation (requires npm),

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

After changing the javascript, run npm install from the js directory, or webpack --watch and work from the examples/dev.ipynb notebook,
