Ipywidgets in sidebar

I’d like to display ipywidgets such as sliders, color pickers and more in one of the sidebars instead of displaying it under the creating cell in the main area.

Is this possible with some extra coding? Can I find an example somewhere? Or do I have to write a complete new extension and copy the needed ipywidgets parts?

Perhaps jupyterlab-sidecar would meet your needs? It’s a “first-party” extension, by the main widget maintainers, and used by a number of libraries for app-like behavior.

Some other options (verging on second-, third- or nth-party) for reaching “outside the box”:


Thank you, jupyterlab-sidecar was exactly what I was looking for.
ipylab and wxyz.lab look interesting, too.
