Features of Bokeh: Some of the important features of Bokeh are given below:

  • Flexibility: Bokeh can be used for common plotting requirements and for custom and complex use-cases.
  • Productivity: Its interaction with other popular Pydata tools (such as Pandas and Jupyter notebook) is very easy.
  • Interactivity: It creates interactive plots that changes with the user interaction.
  • Powerful: Generation of visualizations for specialised use-cases can be done by adding JavaScript.
  • Shareable: Visual data are shareable. They can also be rendered in Jupyter notebooks.
  • Open source: Bokeh is an open source project.

Interface Level: Bokeh supports different interface levels can be used by users:

  • a low-level: bokeh.models interface provides the most flexibility to application developers.
  • an intermediate-level: bokeh.plotting interface is composing of all visual glyphs.
  • a high-level: bokeh.charts interface is used to build complex plots easily.
