Live Demo

You can try StickyLand directly in your browser without installing anything:

Fast loadingFull functionality
LiteBinder

Install

First, you need to install JupyterLab. Then you can install StickyLand with pip:

pip install stickyland

Show details
Drag and drop to create sticky cellsCreate sticky code and markdown from scratch
Automatically execute sticky cellsUse floating cells to create interactive dashboards

With multiple floating cells, users can create a full-fledged interactive dashboard. For example, a machine learning engineer can build an ML Error Analysis Dashboard (shown below) through simple drag-and-drop.

The ML Error Analysis Dashboard consists of: (A) markdown text describing the dashboard, (B) input field to specify a feature to diagnose, (C) auto-run chart showing the distribution of the specified feature, (D) second input field to further specify the range within the feature to diagnose, (E) auto-run table displaying all samples that meet the criteria, (F) auto-run visualization explaining how the ML model makes decision on these samples, (G) interactive tool allowing the ML engineer to fix the ML model by editing its parameters based on their error analysis.

Development

You will need NodeJS to build the extension package. The jlpm command is JupyterLab's pinned version of yarn that is installed with JupyterLab. You may use yarn or npm in lieu of jlpm below.

# Clone the repo to your local environment
# Change directory to the jupyterlab_stickyland directory
# Install package in development mode
pip install -e .
# Link your development version of the extension with JupyterLab
jupyter labextension develop . --overwrite
# Rebuild extension Typescript source after making changes
jlpm run build

You can watch the source directory and run JupyterLab at the same time in different terminals to watch for changes in the extension's source and automatically rebuild the extension.

# Watch the source directory in one terminal, automatically rebuilding when needed
jlpm run watch
# Run JupyterLab in another terminal
jupyter lab

With the watch command running, every saved change will immediately be built locally and available in your running JupyterLab. Refresh JupyterLab to load the change in your browser (you may need to wait several seconds for the extension to be rebuilt).

By default, the jlpm run build command generates the source maps for this extension to make it easier to debug using the browser dev tools. To also generate source maps for the JupyterLab core extensions, you can run the following command:

jupyter lab build --minimize=False
