Version: 2.0.3dev0

pythreejs is a Jupyter widgets based notebook extension that allows Jupyter to leverage the WebGL capabilities of modern browsers by creating bindings to the javascript library three.js.

By being based on top of the jupyter-widgets infrastructure, it allows for eased integration with other interactive tools for notebooks.


To get started with pythreejs, install with pip:

pip install pythreejs

If you are using a notebook version older than 5.3, or if your kernel is in another environment than the notebook server, you will also need to register the front-end extensions.

For the notebook front-end:

jupyter nbextension install [--sys-prefix | --user | --system] --py pythreejs
jupyter nbextension enable [--sys-prefix | --user | --system] --py pythreejs

For jupyterlab:

jupyter labextension install jupyter-threejs


If you are installing an older version of pythreejs, you might have to add a version specifier for the labextension to match the Python package, e.g. jupyter-threejs@1.0.0.
