inline magic command, you can make use of a matplotlib package named ipympl which provides Jupyter integration and allows you to work with interactive plots within your matplotlib.
To have that, you need to install
ipympl using either
conda depending on whether you are using a native python environment or an anaconda environment respectively.
pip, you can use the command below
pip install ipympl
However, if you use
conda, you can use the command below
conda install -c conda-forge ipympl
Also, if you are using JupyterLab 2, you might need to follow the command below
conda install -c conda-forge nodejs jupyter labextension install @jupyter-widgets/jupyterlab-manager jupyter-matplotlib
After installing the
ipympl package, you can restart your JupyterLab and make use of the
widget magic command to allow for interactive matplotlib within your code.
To run interactive plots using matplotlib, you will need an extension -
ipympl - to provide for such which relies on
NodeJS to work, or you can render such a plot as a static plot using the
inline magic command.
