I’m really excited to see the Bokeh library reactivated on github. I really
want to use Bokeh and get familiar with it, and potentially have one of the
first packages to incorporate it directly (if the license allows for it).
Great! The license for Bokeh will be MIT/BSD, or as close as we can
get to it. (We may have loose linkage to Apache or LGPL things down
My question, then, is to the primary developers. Is now a good time for a
new user to begin working with the library, in the sense of learning it and
implementing it in one’s own programs? Or do you expect the API/source to
change dramatically over the next X months, and if so, would you recommend
waiting for an official release?
It’s definitely a work in progress at this point. We are using
components of it in Wakari (http://wakari.io) at the moment, but that
codebase is not moving as fast as the trunk of Bokeh itself. I don’t
think I could encourage anyone to integrate what we have at the
moment, since there are still many core features we need to implement,
and much implementation that will change over the next few weeks and
One of the major changes that is coming in the next week or two is
integration with/incorporation of Stencil
(http://www.cs.indiana.edu/~jcottam/stencil.xml). The Stencil
language (or a Python-embedded DSL that is very close to it) will be
the primary declarative input to Bokeh, and while we will always
support the ggplot-style interface, it’s very likely that the full
power of Bokeh will not be available through the ggplot-style algebra
As soon as things stabilize and the dust settles, we’re going to cut a
0.1 release for folks to play with in earnest.
Thanks for your interest and support!
