Project description

Shiny for Python

PyPI Latest Release Build status Conda Latest Release Supported Python versions License

Shiny for Python is the best way to build fast, beautiful web applications in Python. You can build quickly with Shiny and create simple interactive visualizations and prototype applications in an afternoon. But unlike other frameworks targeted at data scientists, Shiny does not limit your app's growth. Shiny remains extensible enough to power large, mission-critical applications.

To learn more about Shiny see the Shiny for Python website. If you're new to the framework we recommend these resources:

You can create and run your first application with shiny create, the CLI will ask you which template you would like to use. You can either run the app with the Shiny extension, or call shiny run --reload --launch-browser.


If you want to do development on Shiny for Python:

pip install -e ".[dev,test]"

Additionally, you can install pre-commit hooks which will automatically reformat and lint the code when you make a commit:
