Thebe turns your static HTML pages into interactive ones, powered by a kernel. It is the evolution of the original Thebe project with javascript APIs provided by JupyterLab.

For example, see the following code cell:

%matplotlib inline
import numpy as np
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
fig, ax = plt.subplots()
ax.scatter(*np.random.randn(2, 100), c=np.random.randn(100))
ax.set(title="Wow, an interactive plot!")

It is static for now. You can activate Thebe by pressing the button below. This will ask for a Python kernel, and turn the code cell into an interactive one with outputs!

Try clicking the button. The cell will be come active!

You can press “run” in order to run the contents of the cell and display the result (be patient, it will take a few moments for Binder to start the kernel).
