A Jupyter plugin to load Pants targets into Jupyter Notebooks.

The pants-jupyter-plugin project provides a Jupyter plugin that can be used to load Pants targets directly into a notebook.


Jupyter plugins are typically installed using pip directly alongside Jupyter (Lab) itself.

If you don't already have Jupyter set up somewhere, create a virtualenv for it, and then install and start it by running:

# Install jupyter and the plugin (NB: please use a virtualenv!)
pip install jupyterlab pants-jupyter-plugin
# Launch JupyterLab, which will open a browser window for notebook editing.
jupyter lab


For instructions on using the plugin, see its README.

An example session that loads a target from the example-python repository might look like:
