To get started with ipycytoscape, install with pip:

pip install ipycytoscape

or with conda/mamba:

conda install -c conda-forge ipycytoscape
# or with mamba
mamba install -c conda-forge ipycytoscape

JupyterLab Installation

If you are using JupyterLab version 1.x or 2.x then you will also need to install nodejs and the jupyterlab-manager extension.

conda install -c conda-forge nodejs

The jupyter-cytoscape labextension should have been automatically installed for you when you installed the Python package, but you still need to install the JupyterLab widget manager:

jupyter labextension install @jupyter-widgets/jupyterlab-manager --no-build

# if you already installed the manager you still to run jupyter lab build
jupyter lab build

Old version of Jupyter notebook

If you installed via pip, and use Juptyer Notebook with a version < 5.3, you will also have to install / configure the front-end extension as well. If you are using classic notebook (as opposed to Jupyterlab), run:

jupyter nbextension install [--sys-prefix / --user / --system] --py ipycytoscape

jupyter nbextension enable [--sys-prefix / --user / --system] --py ipycytoscape

with the appropriate flag.

If you are installing using conda, these commands should be unnecessary, but If you need to run them the commands should be the same (just make sure you choose the --sys-prefix flag).
