Welcome to the jupyter_rfb docs!¶
The jupyter_rfb library provides a widget (an ipywidgets subclass) that can be used in the Jupyter notebook and in JupyterLab to realize a remote frame buffer.
Images that are generated at the server are streamed to the client (Jupyter) where they are shown. Events (such as mouse interactions) are streamed in the other direction, where the server can react by generating new images.
This remote-frame-buffer approach can be an effective method for server-generated visualizations to be dispayed in Jupyter notebook/lab. For example visualization created by tools like vispy, datoviz or pygfx.
