Refresh browser display via booked server

Hi,

I have a simple code which plots on the browser (attached below). I have two questions. The first is how do I refresh this plot? That is if I rerun the python code that I use to plot the graph is there a way I can automatically delete the old plot on the browser? Right now it just creates a second identical plot on the browser.

The second question is, I want to introduce a second plot to appear on the browser mid way through the program (see the last 4 commented lines on the code below). This does not produce a plot on the browser. I know that IPython.display.clear_output(True) will not work on the browser (its there because it works on the python notebook when outputting to the notebook). Is there any function which works the same way for the browser?

Thanks,

Charith

I won't say that getting ahold of a specific browsers session and updating it from different processes at different times is impossible, but it is:

* very uncommon
* fairly advanced

So before digging into that rabbit hole, I think it's worth investigating if that's truly the best approach for whatever it is you are trying to do. Can you describe what you are trying to accomplish in more higher level, user-oriented description (i.e. without reference to specific technology)?

Thanks,

Yeah sure. So I am trying to build a visualization for a program which has probabilistic variables. i.e. as the program iterates, its list of output variables change. The visualization simply keeps track of the outputs of every variable created and plots, lets say a histogram. For a program in which outputs the same variables through its entire course, everything works fine with my present code. But whenever a new variable pops up, it is not able to handle it. Can you help?

This does not seem like it should need those advanced techniques, but it's hard to provide specific guidance without seeing what you have tried. Can you provide a complete, pared-down example of what you've tried to do, that didn't work?

Thanks,

Bryan
