Stop plotting your data - annotate your data and let it visualize itself.

HoloViews is an open-source Python library designed to make data analysis and visualization seamless and simple. With HoloViews, you can usually express what you want to do in very few lines of code, letting you focus on what you are trying to explore and convey, not on the process of plotting.


HoloViews works with
Python 2.7 and Python 3
on Linux, Windows, or Mac, and provides optional extensions for working with the
Jupyter/IPython Notebook.

The recommended way to install HoloViews is using the
conda command provided by
Anaconda or

conda install -c pyviz holoviews bokeh

This command will install the typical packages most useful with
HoloViews, though HoloViews itself depends only on
Numpy and Param.
Additional installation and configuration options are described in the
user guide.

You can also clone holoviews directly from GitHub and install it with:

git clone git://github.com/pyviz/holoviews.git
cd holoviews
pip install -e .


Once you've installed HoloViews, you can get a copy of all the
examples shown on the website:

holoviews --install-examples
cd holoviews-examples

And then you can launch Jupyter Notebook to explore them:

jupyter notebook

To work with JupyterLab you will also need the PyViz JupyterLab

conda install -c conda-forge jupyterlab
jupyter labextension install @pyviz/jupyterlab_pyviz

Once you have installed JupyterLab and the extension launch it with::
