A Python package for handwriting and sketching in Jupyter notebooks.
A movie is worth a thousand pictures is worth a million words…
But sometimes it’s too fast, so…
- import ipysketch
- create a
Sketchinstance and give the sketch a name
- display the instance
- edit the sketch
Where are my sketches saved?
When creating a
Sketch instance, you give it a name, say mysketch. The sketch is then saved in the same folder as the Jupyter notebook in two files with ending
.png. The first file is the ipysketch-internal file format, the second is a PNG-representation of it, which is also displayed in the notebook.
Using ipysketch without Jupyter
The ipysketch GUI can also be used outside of Jupyter notebooks. To create a sketch named mysketch enter:
python -m ipysketch mysketch
First, install the ipysketch package using pip:
pip install --upgrade ipysketch
Then install and enable the widgets extension in Jupyter:
jupyter nbextension install --user --py widgetsnbextension jupyter nbextension enable --py widgetsnbextension
ipysketch require Python 3.
