Custom hover displayed on Notebook, but not on Javascript

I’ve a little issue to use the hover on a histogram plot with javascript.
Here a code I would like to put on a nodejs frontend:

from bokeh.plotting import figure
from import output_notebook, show
x = [ “20-25”, “25-30”, “30-35”, “35-40”, “40-45”, “45-50”, “50-55”, “55-60”, “60-65”, “65-70” ];
y = [ 0, 0, 0, 2, 3, 3, 1, 1, 1, 1 ]
p = figure( x_range=x, title= “Age structure”, tools=[“hover”], tooltips=[(“Age”, “@x”),(“Nombre”,"@top")]);
p.vbar(x=x, top=y, hover_color=“tan”, width=0.5, bottom=0, color=“blue”)

It works without problem on my notebook with python.

But on my frontend server with javascript, despite a tooltips parameter in the figure function → Bokeh.Plotting.figure(), the figure only show the default tooltip hover.

Here my code:

Python code and javascript code are barely the sames.
It appears an issue on this line in the javascript/html version.

var p = Bokeh.Plotting.figure(…);

To resolve that:
-I thought to this python code:

tooltips=[( … )]

But I don’t know how to import HoverTool function in javascript.

-I also know it can be resolved with a python backend/flask server (json_item → embed doc), but I rather not add python code to my project.


Hi @VivienD in the future please use actual code formatting so that the code is formatter as code (either with the </> icon on the editing toolbar, or triple backtick ``` fences around the code blocks)

FYI the BokehJS function API is much less mature than the Python side. AFAIK it does not yet support a tooltips convenience argument, and you would need to configure HoverTool explicitly as in this example:
