The authors of these tools are working together closely to help make them into a coherent solution to a wide range of Python visualization problems.
If you like HoloViz, please tweet a screenshot
of your latest creation at
@PyViz_org, linking to
along with any other library you relied on (
@Matplotlib, etc.). Thanks!
There is an active open source community around HoloViz, and contributions from anyone are welcome. Contributions of any sort are valuable, including new documentation, plus bug reports and fixes to code or documentation that might seem trivial (HoloViz is partly about having as many of those ironed out as possible!). Please go ahead and open a pull request or create a new issue :)
While the HoloViz team itself maintains a number of packages on HoloViz’s GitHub, HoloViz depends on and supports a number of other open-source libraries; for more information, see HoloViz’s detailed background.
The entire HoloViz stack is open source, free for commercial and
non-commercial use. However, if you are lucky enough to be in a
position to fund developers to work on HoloViz, you can contact
firstname.lastname@example.org, or you can also collaborate with HoloViz via
Quansight’s open source partnerships.
Additionally, some parts of the HoloViz stack are able to accept donations, e.g. Bokeh via NumFOCUS.
Acknowledgements and prior funding¶
