There are two ways you can use Kedro-Viz:

  • As a Kedro plugin (the most common way).

    To install Kedro-Viz as a Kedro plugin:

    pip install kedro-viz
  • As a standalone React component (for embedding Kedro-Viz in your web application).

    To install the standalone React component:

    npm install @quantumblack/kedro-viz


As a Kedro plugin

To launch Kedro-Viz from the command line as a Kedro plugin, use the following command from the root folder of your Kedro project:

kedro viz

A browser tab opens automatically to serve the visualisation at

Kedro-Viz also supports the following additional arguments on the command line:

Usage: kedro viz [OPTIONS]

  --port INTEGER            TCP port that viz will listen to. Defaults to

  --browser / --no-browser  Whether to open viz interface in the default
                            browser or not. Browser will only be opened if
                            host is localhost. Defaults to True.

  --load-file FILE          Path to load the pipeline JSON file
  --save-file FILE          Path to save the pipeline JSON file
  --pipeline TEXT           Name of the registered pipeline to visualise. If not
                            set, the default pipeline is visualised

  -e, --env TEXT            Kedro configuration environment. If not specified,
                            catalog config in `local` will be used

  --autoreload              Autoreload viz server when a Python or YAML file change in
                            the Kedro project

  -h, --help                Show this message and exit.

As a standalone React component

To use Kedro-Viz as a standalone React component, import the component and supply a data JSON as prop:

import KedroViz from '@quantumblack/kedro-viz';

const MyApp = () => <KedroViz data={json} />;

The JSON can be obtained by running:

kedro viz --save-file=filename.json

Feature Flags
