I am new to Bokeh and need some hints into the right direction for my purpose. I want to generate interactive 2D-plots using Bokeh. A python application generates the data. I use it for personal use only.
As of now, I am using Spyder to develop the application and run it from inside Spyder. The application processes some data, and creates a plot, so far without any interaction.
The interaction I want to add is that I “select” an x-axis value (ideally by clicking any data point/glyph having the x-axis value I want to select). The x-axis contains date or date/time values. All data belonging to the selected x-axis value should then be displayed in a second “plot”, which could in the simplest form be a PreText widget, for example.
If I unterstand the User Guide correctly, I need to use a Bokeh server to be able to use callbacks with python code. Is this correct? My problem is that I don’t really understand how I could make this function with my python application. According to the user guide there is the possibility to use a “single module format” or a “directory format”.
My application consists of a number of modules.
- Do I have to use the “directory format”?
- Do I have to put my application inside this directory structure?
- Is it still possible to run it from Spyder?
How do I have to go about?
Thanks for any help.
