Elyra is a set of AI-centric extensions to JupyterLab Notebooks.

Elyra currently includes the following functionality:


The Elyra Getting Started Guide includes more details on these features.

Try Elyra

Using Binder

You can try out some of Elyra features using the My Binder service.

Click on a link below to try Elyra, on a sandbox environment, without having to install anything.

  • Launch latest stable version (Latest stable version - see changelog for recent updates)
  • Launch latest development version (Development version - expect longer image load time due to just-in-time build)

Using Docker

You can also try Elyra by running one of the docker images from Docker Hub:

  • elyra/elyra:latest has the latest released version installed.
  • elyra/elyra:x.y.z has a specific version installed.
  • elyra/elyra:dev is automatically re-built each time a change is committed to the master branch.

The command below starts the most recent development build in a clean environment:

docker run -it -p 8888:8888 elyra/elyra:dev jupyter lab --debug

To make a local directory containing your Notebooks (e.g. ${HOME}/opensource/jupyter-notebooks/) available in your docker container, you can use a mount command similar to the following:

docker run -it -p 8888:8888 -v ${HOME}/opensource/jupyter-notebooks/:/home/jovyan/work -w /home/jovyan/work elyra/elyra:dev jupyter lab --debug

These should produce output similar to that below, where you can then find the URL to be used to access Elyra in your local browser.

    To access the notebook, open this file in a browser:
    Or copy and paste one of these URLs:


Elyra can be installed from PyPI:

Prerequisites :

Optional :

JupyterLab support

NOTE: On November 2020, a new version of PIP (20.3) was released with a new, "2020" resolver. This resolver does not yet work with Elyra and might lead to errors in installation. In order to install Elyra, you need to either downgrade pip to version 20.2.4 pip install --upgrade pip==20.2.4 or, in case you use pip 20.3 (or later), you need to add option --use-deprecated legacy-resolver to your pip install command.

  • JupyterLab 3.x is supported on Elyra 2.0.0 and above

    Install Elyra from PyPI ( Elyra >= 3.1.0 ):

    pip3 install --upgrade "elyra[all]>=3.1.0" && jupyter lab build

    Install fom Conda ( Elyra >= 3.1.0 ):

    conda install -c conda-forge "elyra[all]>=3.1.0" && jupyter lab build

    Install Elyra from PyPI ( Elyra < 3.1.0 ):

    pip3 install --upgrade "elyra>=2.0.1" && jupyter lab build

    Install fom Conda ( Elyra < 3.1.0 ):

    conda install -c conda-forge "elyra>=2.0.1" && jupyter lab build
  • JupyterLab 2.x is supported on Elyra 1.0.0 and above

    Install from PyPI:

    pip3 install --upgrade "elyra<2.0.0" && jupyter lab build

    Install from Conda:

    conda install -c conda-forge "elyra<2.0.0" && jupyter lab build
  • JupyterLab 1.x is supported on Elyra 0.10.x and below

    Install from PyPI:

    pip3 install elyra==0.10.3 && jupyter lab build
