Bokeh is a Python interactive visualization library.

To use Bokeh, install the Bokeh PyPI package through the Libraries UI, and attach it to your cluster.

To display a Bokeh plot in Databricks:

  1. Generate a plot following the instructions in the Bokeh documentation.

  2. Generate an HTML file containing the data for the plot, for example by using Bokeh’s file_html() or output_file() functions.

  3. Pass this HTML to the Databricks displayHTML() function.


    The maximum size for a notebook cell, both contents and output, is 16MB. Make sure that the size of the HTML you pass to the displayHTML() function does not exceed this value.

See the following notebook for an example.
