Using conda#

conda install -c conda-forge ipycanvas

Development installation#

For a development installation (requires npm and jupyterlab):

git clone https://github.com/jupyter-widgets-contrib/ipycanvas.git
cd ipycanvas
pip install -e .

# Installing the JupyterLab extension
jupyter labextension develop . --overwrite
jlpm run build

If you use JupyterLab to develop then 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
