How to start app on client using URI?

Hello,

I was wondering if it is possible to start an application on the client using Dash, e.g. via URI?

The usecase would be following:

  • Dash/Plotly is used to visualize and preselect data (out of a very large amount of data)
  • the selected (small) piece of the data is then downloaded and analyzed with a specialized tool running on the client. It should be possible to trigger that from within the Dash app in the browser

@rumcajs - You should be able to do this with a html.A link that just opens up the specialized tool. You could add query parameters to the href attribute through a dash callback. Here’s a similar approach: Download raw data

Cool, thank you!

Also works together with a button:

html.A(html.Button('Start App'),
       href=path_to_app)
