Candela Python API

The Candela Python library enables the use of interactive Candela visualizations within Jupyter notebooks.


Creates an object representing the Candela visualization specified by the given options. ComponentName is the name of the Candela component, such as ScatterPlot. For a full list of components and their options, see Components.

If a pandas DataFrame is passed as an option, it is automatically converted to a list of records of the form [{"a": 1, "b": "foo"}, {"a": 2, "b": "baz"}] before being sent to the Candela visualization.

To display a component, simply refer to the visualization, without assignment, as the last statement in a notebook cell. You may also explicitly display the visualization from anywhere within a cell using vis.display().
