New user - several questions

Hi,
I’m a new user playing around with Bokeh, and have a few questions I couldn’t find the answers to, if someone has the time to help out:

  1. How do I left-align the title? It seems like the “hook” it aligns to is in the center of the plot, so p.title_text_align = ‘left’ doesn’t do it

  2. It is possible to have a two-line title? Typing “\n” in the title didn’t work

  3. It is possible to have a fixed x axis and y axis bounds? i.e, if I want them to start exactly at (0,0) for example, but auto-scale on the other end? p.xaxis.bounds didn’t seem to do it.

  4. Is it possible to not have any external links (for example, to the css from bokeh’s website), but refer to everything locally, or better yet, put everything inside one self contained html file with no need for network access?

Thanks much!

This is precisely how it’s implemented. This is a bug.

No, not yet. This actually applies to any kind of text.

It should be possible when using DataRange1d(). You can set start and/or end properties to desired values. If you don’t set any value, it will be computed automatically. You may need to set range_padding to 0 to make axis start exactly at the given point.

  1. Is it possible to not have any external links (for example, to the css from bokeh’s website), but refer to everything locally, or better yet, put everything inside one self contained html file with no need for network access?

The best way is to use INLINE resources. This way you will have everything in big HTML file with plot data, bokehjs’ javascript and CSS included.

Thanks much!

Hi,

The title is a bit of a pain at the moment :frowning:

1) How do I left-align the title? It seems like the "hook" it aligns to
is in the center of the plot, so p.title_text_align = 'left' doesn't
do it

It is not possible to change the alignment of the title.

2) It is possible to have a two-line title?

I am not aware of a way to do this

3) It is possible to have a fixed x axis and y axis bounds? i.e, if I
want them to start *exactly* at (0,0) for example, but auto-scale on the
other end? p.xaxis.bounds didn't seem to do it.

Have you tried p.xaxis.bounds = (0, None)?

4) Is it possible to not have any external links (for example, to the
css from bokeh's website), but refer to everything locally, or better
yet, put everything inside one self contained html file with no need for
network access?

Yes, to put everything in a self-contained html file you want to use
INLINE resources. If you're using output_file
(http://bokeh.pydata.org/en/latest/docs/reference/io.html#bokeh.io.output_file)
use mode='inline'

Hope this helps,

Sarah Bird

Sorry I hadn't seen Mateusz's answer - hopefully you have what you need
between the two of us!
