bokeh server: Is there a way to "manually" sync all models between python and JS

Is there something I can do to force all models to be synced between the JS side and the python side when using a bokeh server?

In a bokeh server app I update a ColumnDataSource with a CustomJS callback, the source data has initially empty columns
This works well and the new data is displayed in the browser.

I also have a python on_change callback for the selected attribute of the source.

The callback triggers when a point is clicked, and the selected indices of the selection are correct, but the source model itself is still empty.

I use 0.12.10, and I understand the selection is now a model and this specific issue might have been fixed.

But I would still like to know if there is a way to do a “manual” general python-JS sync

Thanks

Hi,

There is not. Every change you make triggers a change sync event already. It's possible what you are seeing is simply an order of updates issue. If you are looking to simply batch updates in a way that gives you more control, or because you want to coalesce events together, the hold/unhold functions may be useful (I can't quite tell from your description if it will be useful for you or not):

Thanks,

Bryan

Thanks for the answer !

Here is a specific small example:

from bokeh.models import ColumnDataSource, CustomJS, Button
from bokeh.io import curdoc
from bokeh.plotting import figure
from bokeh.layouts import Row

def callback(attr,old,new):
source = curdoc().select_one({‘name’:‘source’})
print source.data

source = ColumnDataSource(data={‘x’:,‘y’:},name=‘source’)

fig = figure(tools=‘tap’)
fig.scatter(‘x’,‘y’,size=10,source=source)

source.on_change(‘selected’,callback)

button = Button(label=‘test’,width=100)

button_code = “”"
var data = source.data;
data[‘x’] = ;
data[‘y’] = ;
for (i=0;i<10;i++){
data[‘x’].push(i);
data[‘y’].push(i);
}
source.change.emit();
“”"

button.callback = CustomJS(args={‘source’:source},code=button_code)

curdoc().add_root(Row(fig,button))

``

After clicking the button the plot is updated with the points

After clicking on a point the terminal output is:
{‘y’: , ‘x’: }

``

Oh, in this case it is due to the fact that we cannot detect changes "inside" arrays, and you are only making those kinds of changes. This is an unfortunate JS limitation, I am not aware of anything that can be done about it. The workaround is to set a real, full property, e.g. "source.data = data", which is something the property system can detect:

button_code = """
var data = source.data;
data['x'] = ;
data['y'] = ;
for (i=0;i<10;i++){
data['x'].push(i);
data['y'].push(i);
}
source.data = data;
source.change.emit();
"""

Hello Bryan,

is there a way to access the event queue before calling “unhold”, e.g. to remove some events from the queue ?

thanks

Hi,

In Python there is always a way. They are in Document._held_events, however I would personally regard mucking with that as a questionable idea. We may for instance change private APIs and attributes at any time with no warning.

Thanks,

Bryan
