Trying the Highcharts for Python Toolkit
You are welcome to try the Highcharts for Python toolkit at your convenience and at no cost. You can do so by installing the libraries you need very simple:
To install Highcharts Core for Python, just execute:
$ pip install highcharts-core
To install Highcharts Stock for Python, just execute:
$ pip install highcharts-stock
To install Highcharts Maps for Python, just execute:
$ pip install highcharts-maps
To install Highcharts Gantt for Python, just execute:
$ pip install highcharts-gantt
If you are evaluating the Highcharts for Python Toolkit, you are welcome to install this library and use it free of charge.
However, if you are using it for professional purposes - either to use Highcharts for your work, or to build an application that integrates the library - then you have to pay for both Highcharts Core (JS) itself and for your right to use the Highcharts for Python Toolkit.
You can purchase licenses for both from Highsoft A/S at: https://shop.highcharts.com/.
Demonstrating the Highcharts for Python Toolkit
We have prepared an extensive set of demos showcasing much of the code and functionality of the Highcharts for Python toolkit. To see the demos in action, we recommend that you click the following badge:
This will clone the Highcharts for Python Demos source repository within a Docker image, and launch Jupyter Lab within that Docker container. This will then let you browse, edit, and run any of the Jupyter Notebooks contained within the Highcharts for Python Demos repo.
How the Demos are Organized
Once you have launched the Binder, you can browse the folders and Notebooks in the Jupyter Lab
environment. You’ll notice that the Jupyter Lab environment has one folder for each of the core
Highcharts for Python libraries, respectively:
highcharts-gantt. Within each of these folders, you will find sub-folders
labeled in a way to describe their contents.
line-chartswould contain various Notebooks that demonstrate the generation of various Line Charts using the Highcharts for Python toolkit
python-featureswould contain various Notebooks that demonstrate the use of Python-specific features like the
Navigating the demos should be fairly intuitive - just pay attention to the folder names and the filenames of the Jupyter Notebooks.
Executing a Demo
Once you are reviewing the demos, you can run a demo either by stepping through the cells in the Notebook, or by running all the cells in sequence.
Running Demos Locally
You can run the demos locally by following instructions in the Highcharts for Python Demos Github repo’s README.
