Table of contents



You can install dashvis with pip:

pip install dashvis

Quick start

dashvis exposes a single component, DashNetwork. Simply create one and include it in your Dash layout. Simplest example:

import dash
from dash import html
from dashvis import DashNetwork

app = dash.Dash()
app.layout = html.Div([

if __name__ == '__main__':

See how it is used

A simple usage example is provided in

  1. Run:
python -m venv dashvis-venv 
source dashvis-venv/bin/activate 
pip install -r requirements.txt
npm install
npm run build
  1. Visit http://localhost:8050 in your web browser

Advanced examples

Examples which cover the entire API of vis.js are available in usage_examples folder. Running them requires PYTHONPATH to be made aware of dashvis. Simply run:

export PYTHONPATH="${PYTHONPATH}:./dashvis"

and then run any example from repo root directory of the repository:

python usage_examples/<example_name>.py

Linking a stylesheet

dashvis doesn't come with CSS included. If you enable network manipulation or navigation features, you need to include a stylesheet to draw those components of the network.

For convenience, links to vis.js stylesheets are included for you and can be used as follows:

import dash
import dashvis.stylesheets

app = dash.Dash(external_stylesheets=[dashvis.stylesheets.VIS_NETWORK_STYLESHEET])
