Interact allows to create small GUIs in Julia based on web technology. These GUIs can be deployed in jupyter notebooks, in the Juno IDE plot pane, in an Electron window or in the browser.
To understand how to use it go through the Tutorial. The tutorial is also available here as a Jupyter notebook.
Creating an app in Interact requires three ingredients:
- Observables: references that can listen to changes in other references
- Widgets: the graphical elements that make up the app
- Layout: tools to assemble together different widgets
To get a quick overview of how these tools work together, go to Tutorial.
To use unstyled widgets in the middle of the session (or to style them again) simply do:
InteractBase works with the following frontends:
- Juno - The hottest Julia IDE
- IJulia - Jupyter notebooks (and Jupyter Lab) for Julia
- Blink - An Electron wrapper you can use to make Desktop apps
- Mux - A web server framework
See Deploying the web app for instructions.
