A sidecar output widget for JupyterLab


If you use jupyterlab:

pip install sidecar
jupyter labextension install @jupyter-widgets/jupyterlab-manager
jupyter labextension install @jupyter-widgets/jupyterlab-sidecar


The sidecar widget is used as a context manager, just like ipywidgets' output widget.

from sidecar import Sidecar
from ipywidgets import IntSlider

sc = Sidecar(title='Sidecar Output')
sl = IntSlider(description='Some slider')
with sc:

When a single output is displayed in a Sidecar, it is allowed to occupy all of the vertical space available. If more content is displayed, the natural height is used instead.
