How to install and upgrade dash libraries with pip
layout describes what your app will look like and is composed of a set of declarative Dash components.
Dash apps are made interactive through Dash Callbacks: Python functions that are automatically called whenever an input component’s property changes. Callbacks can be chained, allowing one update in the UI to trigger several updates across the app.
Bind interactivity to the Dash
Graph component whenever you hover, click, or select points on your chart.
global variables will break your Dash apps. However, there are other ways to share data between callbacks. This chapter is useful for callbacks that run expensive data processing tasks or process large data.
If you have read through the rest of the tutorial and still have questions or are encountering unexpected behaviour, this chapter may be useful.
Go through this introductory chapter to learn the foundations of the Dash callback.
Now that you’ve gotten through the basics, take a look at other things you can do with callbacks - from performance improvements to callback contexts.
The pattern-matching callback selectors
ALLSMALLER allow you to write callbacks that respond to or update an arbitrary or dynamic number of components. New in Dash 1.11.0!
Dash callbacks have some idiosyncracies that should be taken into consideration when building a Dash app. If you’re running into unexpected callback behavior, and the rest of the documentation hasn’t shed any light on the situation, try taking a look in this section.
The Dash Core Component library contains a set of higher-level components like sliders, graphs, dropdowns, tables, and more.
Dash provides all of the available HTML tags as user-friendly Python classes. This chapter explains how this works and the few important key differences between Dash HTML components and standard html.
dash_table.DataTable is an interactive table that supports rich styling, conditional formatting, editing, sorting, filtering, and more.
Dash Bio is a component library dedicated to visualizing bioinformatics data.

Dash Cytoscape is our new network visualization
component. It offers a declarative and pythonic
interface to create beautiful, customizable,
interactive and reactive network graphs.
for Python developers.
Dash components are built with React.js. Dash provides a React → Dash toolchain that generates a Dash-compatible interface to these components in Python.
Tutorials and resources on encapsulating D3.js graphs in
Dash-friendly React components.
Includes two sample components: a D3.js network graph
and a D3.js sunburst chart.
There are three main ways to speed up Dash apps: caching, using WebGL chart types, and implementing clientside callbacks.
Update your apps on page load or
on a predefined interval (e.g. every 5 seconds)
New in dash v0.22.0! Learn how to add custom CSS and JS to your
application with the
assets directory. Also, learn how to
customize the HTML template that Dash serves on page load in order
to add custom meta tags, customize the page’s title, and more.
Dash provides two components (
dcc.Location) that allow you to easily make fast multipage apps using its own “Single Page App (SPA)” design pattern.
(Released September 2019 with Dash 1.3) Save user choices
across page reloads, or just when removing and re-adding a
component. Learn how to use persistence, and how to enable it
in components you write yourself.
