Jupyter Console interactivity not working

Hey Guys,

Not quite sure what the root of the problem is / how deep this goes …

I have some multidimensional xarray data which I am plotting using ds.hvplot.image() inside a Jupyter notebook (Jupyter lab) I can scroll through the different indexes just fine.

Inside a Jupyter console however I get the same interface but the plot does not update.

Like I said above not sure if this is a hv problem or broader Jupyter Console related problem.

Also hoped this is the right place to discuss vs. GitHub

I’ve honestly never used the Jupyter console and don’t know what affordances it provides. Do ipywidgets work for instance?

Hmm ok so with your confirmation it isn’t a hvplot issue I did a bit more digging and it seems more wide spread, as in Jupyter Lab console does not support widgets at the moment: https://github.com/jupyter-widgets/ipywidgets/issues/2370

Workflow was to create a library / module I was using the console to quickly test parts of the code (interactivity + rendered results) rather than having “test” notebooks lying around
