Pythreejs Example

Thebe can display output from pythreejs. The examples are taken from the pythreejs documentation and are licensed under the BSD 3-Clause License.

Setup

Be sure to load require.js before any of your thebe activation code so that the Jupyter widgets can function:

<script src="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/require.js/2.3.4/require.min.js"></script>

Configure thebe and load it:

<script type="text/x-thebe-config">
  {
    requestKernel: true,
    binderOptions: {
      repo: "jupyter-widgets/pythreejs",
      ref: "2.2.1",
      binderUrl: "https://mybinder.org",
      repoProvider: "github",
    },
  }
</script>
<script src="https://unpkg.com/thebe@latest/lib/index.js"></script>

Create a button to activate thebe:

<button id="activateButton" style="width: 120px; height: 40px; font-size: 1.5em;">
  Activate
</button>
<script>
var bootstrapThebe = function() {
    thebe.bootstrap();
}
document.querySelector("#activateButton").addEventListener('click', bootstrapThebe)
</script>

Now add code cells between these HTML tags:

<pre data-executable="true" data-language="python"></pre>

Primitive shapes can be displayed:

from pythreejs import BoxGeometry
BoxGeometry(
    width=5,
    height=10,
    depth=15,
    widthSegments=5,
    heightSegments=10,
    depthSegments=15)

More complex shapes can be constructed and viewed:

from IPython.display import display
from pythreejs import (ParametricGeometry, Mesh, PerspectiveCamera, Scene,
                       MeshLambertMaterial, DirectionalLight, AmbientLight,
                       Renderer, OrbitControls, PerspectiveCamera)

f = """
function f(origu, origv, out) {
    // scale u and v to the ranges I want: [0, 2*pi]
    var u = 2*Math.PI*origu;
    var v = 2*Math.PI*origv;

    var x = Math.sin(u);
    var y = Math.cos(v);
    var z = Math.cos(u+v);

    out.set(x,y,z);
}
"""
surf_g = ParametricGeometry(func=f, slices=16, stacks=16)

surf = Mesh(geometry=surf_g, material=MeshLambertMaterial(color='green', side='FrontSide'))
