Scope of ipywidgets¶
ipywidgets is a framework to provide eventful python objects that have a representation in the browser (see Simple Widget Introduction for more on the definition of widgets). This requires two components:
- A basic, lightweight set of form controls that use this framework, based on standard HTML form controls. These included controls include a text area, text box, select and multiselect controls, checkbox, etc. A few more advanced controls that are very popular are also included, such as a slider and basic tab panels.
