About The Project

ipyvizzu is an animated charting tool for Jupyter, Google Colab, Databricks, Kaggle and Deepnote notebooks among other platforms. ipyvizzu enables data scientists and analysts to utilize animation for storytelling with data using Python. It's built on the open-source JavaScript/C++ charting library Vizzu.

There is a new extension of ipyvizzu, ipyvizzu-story with which the animated charts can be presented right from the notebooks. Since ipyvizzu-story's syntax is a bit different to ipyvizzu's, we suggest you to start from the ipyvizzu-story repo if you're interested in using animated charts to present your findings live or to share your presentation as an HTML file.

Similarly to Vizzu, ipyvizzu utilizes a generic dataviz engine that generates many types of charts and seamlessly animates between them. It is designed for building animated data stories as it enables showing different perspectives of the data that the viewers can easily follow.

Main features:

  • Designed with animation in focus;
  • Defaults based on data visualization guidelines;
  • Works with Pandas dataframe, while also JSON and inline data input is available;
  • Auto scrolling feature to keep the actual chart in position while executing multiple cells.


pip install ipyvizzu

Visit Installation chapter for more options and details.


You can create the animation below with the following code snippet.


import pandas as pd
from ipyvizzu import Chart, Data, Config

df = pd.read_csv(
data = Data()

chart = Chart(width="640px", height="360px")


            "x": "Count",
            "y": "Sex",
            "label": "Count",
            "title": "Passengers of the Titanic",
            "x": ["Count", "Survived"],
            "label": ["Count", "Survived"],
            "color": "Survived",
chart.animate(Config({"x": "Count", "y": ["Sex", "Survived"]}))

ipyvizzu can be used in a wide variety of environments, visit Environments chapter for more details.


  • ipyvizzu-story adds presentation controls to present data stories live or to share them as an interactive HTML file.
