Using PyQt with QtAgg in Jupyterlab – IV – simple PyQt and MPL application with background worker and receiver threads

As you read this post you are probably interested in Machine Learning [ML] and hopefully in Linux systems as a ML-platform as well. This post series wants to guide you over a bridge between the standard tool-set of Python3 notebooks in Jupyterlab for the control of ML-algorithms and graphical Qt-applications on your Linux desktop. The objective is to become more independent of some limitations of the browser based Jupyterlab notebooks. One aspect is the use of graphical Qt-based control elements (as e.g. buttons, etc.) in… Read More »Using PyQt with QtAgg in Jupyterlab – IV – simple PyQt and MPL application with background worker and receiver threads

Using PyQt with QtAgg in Jupyterlab – III – a simple pattern for background threads

We can use PyQt to organize output of Machine Learning applications in Qt-windows outside of Jupyterlab notebooks on a Linux desktop. PyQt also provides us with an option to put long running Python code as ML training and evaluation runs into the background of Jupyterlab and redirect graphical and text output to elements of Qt windows. Moving long lasting Python jobs and ML algorithms to the background of Jupyterlab would have the advantages In the first two posts of this series we saw that PyQt… Read More »Using PyQt with QtAgg in Jupyterlab – III – a simple pattern for background threads

Using PyQt with QtAgg in Jupyterlab – II – excursion on threads, signals and events

In the first post of this series on PyQt Using PyQt with QtAgg in Jupyterlab – I – a first simple example we have studied how to set up a PyQt application in a Jupyterlab notebook. The key to getting a seamless integration was to invoke the QtAgg-backend of Matplotlib. Otherwise we did not need to use any of Matplolib’s functionality. For our first PyQt test application we just used multiple nested Qt-widgets in a QMainWindow to create a simple, but interactive and instructive application… Read More »Using PyQt with QtAgg in Jupyterlab – II – excursion on threads, signals and events

Using PyQt with QtAgg in Jupyterlab – I – a first simple example

As my readers know I presently study how to work with background jobs for plot and information updates in Jupyterlab. The reason for this endeavor is that I want to organize my work with ML- training and long evaluation runs a bit differently in the future. In particular I want to have the freedom of working in other regions (other cells) of a Python3 notebook while the long running jobs do their work in the background. This includes that these other cells may also start… Read More »Using PyQt with QtAgg in Jupyterlab – I – a first simple example
