Ipython notebook widget

Iā€™m used to work with the ipython notebook widgets and matplotlib. Because I would like to move to plotly instead, I went across the Plotly and IPython Widgets tutorial page but it looks like the only way to get it to work is to get a plotly url ā€¦ I would like to stay local. So is it possible to add widgets inside my notebook without the need to get a url from py.plot (I would like to use iplot instead)
