Exporting Jupyterlab notebook as HTML plotly loses interactiveness

Hi everyone, I’m having a problem when I export my notebook in Jupyterlab to HTML my plots I generated from plotly lose the interactive aspect. I have been able to export before and plotly stays interactive.

I’m using plotly 3.4.0 and jupyter labextension @jupyterlab/plotly-extension v0.18.0

from plotly.offline import download_plotlyjs, init_notebook_mode, plot, iplot
import plotly.offline as po

fig = go.Figure(data=data, layout=layout)
interactive = iplot(fig)

Has anyone come across this before?

Hi @tmiesse,

Try running init_notebook_mode() before calling iplot. init_notebook_mode isn’t needed for JupyterLab to render the graphs, but it is still needed to export them as interactive plots to HTML.

Hope that helps!

Yes that worked perfectly.

I thought I tried using init_notebook_node() the other day on a different computer and it ended up giving blank outputs, but it works now.

Thank you
