Integration with Jupyter Notebook

This tutorial will help you integrate Flexmonster with Jupyter Notebook applications. Follow these steps to set up a simple project.


To run a simple application, you will need Jupyter Notebook. For simplicity, you can use the web version of it, which doesn’t require anything to be installed on your computer. You can also follow this guide and install Jupyter yourself.

After that, choose one of the following options:

  1. Run a simple Jupyter Notebook and Flexmonster sample from GitHub
  2. Integrate Flexmonster into an existing/new Jupyter Notebook application

Run a simple Jupyter Notebook and Flexmonster sample from GitHub

Step 1. Download the .zip archive with the sample or clone it from GitHub with the following command:

git clone

Step 2a. If you use the desktop version of Jupyter Notebook, run it with the following command:

jupyter notebook

Jupyter Notebook will be automatically launched in your browser.

Step 2b. Then, upload the Flexmonster_in_Jupyter_Notebook.ipynb file to the Jupyter Notebook. The file will appear in the Files tab.

Step 3. Run the sample project by selecting the Cell section in the navigation bar and clicking on the Run all command.

Integrate Flexmonster into an existing/new Jupyter Notebook application

To integrate Flexmonster into a Jupyter Notebook app, follow these steps:

Step 1. If you don’t have an existing Jupyter Python 3 notebook, open Jupyter Notebook and create a new Python 3 file.

Step 2. Import libraries to work with HTML and JSON in Python, as well as Pandas for data manipulations:

from IPython.display import HTML
import json
import pandas as pd

Step 3. Define some data with Pandas and convert it to JSON using the orient="records" parameter to present the data in a way so Flexmonster could process it:

data = pd.DataFrame([["Lemon cake", 30, 4.99],["Apple pie", 45, 6.99], ["Raspberry jam", 70, 3.99]],index=['row 1', 'row 2', 'row 3'], columns=['Product', 'Quantity', 'Price per Item'])
json_data = data.to_json(orient="records")

Step 4. Define Flexmonster:

flexmonster = {
"container": "#pivot-container",
"componentFolder": "",
"report": {
"dataSource": "json",
"data": json.loads(json_data)

Step 5. Convert the flexmonster object to a JSON-formatted string:

flexmonster_json_object = json.dumps(flexmonster)

Step 6. Define a function to display Flexmonster in HTML (e.g., pivot()):

def pivot(flexmonster_json_object):
#the format function is needed to insert Flexmonster object into the script
    code = '''
      <script src=""></script>
      <h1>Flexmonster Integration with Jupyter Notebook</h1>
      <div id="pivot-container"></div>
       new Flexmonster({});
#convert the code string to HTML
   return HTML(code)

Step 7. Display the component using the pivot() function:


Step 8. Run the notebook by selecting the Cell section in the navigation bar and clicking on the Run all command.

The component will appear in an output cell right after the one containing the pivot() function call.
