Installation instructions and basic usage.
Warning! - These instructions are for installation of legacy versions of dash-bootstrap-components. Please consider updating to the latest stable release.
dash-bootstrap-components can be used with Dash in Python, R or Julia.
You can install dash-bootstrap-components with
pip install "dash-bootstrap-components<1"
You can also install dash-bootstrap-components with
conda through the
conda install -c conda-forge "dash-bootstrap-components<1"
To get started make sure you have installed Dash for R. If you didn't already install it in order to install Dash for R, we also need to make sure that the devtools library is installed.
You can then install dash-bootstrap-components from our GitHub repository.
To get started make sure you have installed Dash.jl. You can then install
DashBootstrapComponents as follows
pkg> add DashBootstrapComponents@0.13.1
Or alternatively you can install from source as follows
julia> using Pkg; julia> Pkg.add(PackageSpec( url="https://github.com/facultyai/dash-bootstrap-components", rev="jl-0.13.1", ))
dash-bootstrap-components is a component library for use with Plotly Dash. If you have not used Dash before, it's strongly recommended you check out the Dash documentation and try building a basic app first.
To use dash-bootstrap-components you must do two things:
- Link a Bootstrap v4 compatible stylesheet
- Incorporate dash-bootstrap-components into the layout of your app.
Linking a stylesheet
dash-bootstrap-components doesn't come with CSS included. This is to give you the freedom to use any Bootstrap v4 stylesheet of your choice. This means however that in order for the components to be styled properly, you must link to a stylesheet yourself.
For convenience, links to BootstrapCDN for standard Bootstrap and each Bootswatch theme are available as part of dash-bootstrap-components and can be used as follows
In Python, each CDN link is available within the
dbc.themes submodule and can
be used when instantiating the
import dash import dash_bootstrap_components as dbc app = dash.Dash(external_stylesheets=[dbc.themes.BOOTSTRAP])
Once you have imported dash-bootstrap-components with
dbcThemes list will be loaded into
your global namespace and can be used when instantiating the
library(dash) library(dashBootstrapComponents) app <- Dash$new(external_stylesheets = dbcThemes$BOOTSTRAP)
using Dash, DashBootstrapComponents app = dash(external_stylesheets=[dbc_themes.BOOTSTRAP])
For more information on available themes see the themes documentation
Build the layout
With CSS linked, you can start building your app's layout with our Bootstrap components. See the component documentation for a full list of available components, or try running this minimal example to get started.
This is a minimal Dash app written in Python.
import dash import dash_bootstrap_components as dbc app = dash.Dash(external_stylesheets=[dbc.themes.BOOTSTRAP]) app.layout = dbc.Container( dbc.Alert("Hello Bootstrap!", color="success"), className="p-5", ) if __name__ == "__main__": app.run_server()
This is a minimal Dash app written in R.
library(dash) library(dashBootstrapComponents) app <- Dash$new(external_stylesheets = dbcThemes$BOOTSTRAP) app$layout(dbcContainer(dbcAlert("Hello Bootstrap!", color = "success"), className = "p-5")) app$run_server(showcase = TRUE)
This is a minimal Dash app written in Julia.
using Dash, DashBootstrapComponents app = dash(external_stylesheets=[dbc_themes.BOOTSTRAP]) app.layout = dbc_container( dbc_alert("Hello Bootstrap!", color="success"), className="p-5", ) run_server(app, "0.0.0.0", 8080)
