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. A version-specific summary of new features is located on the releases page.

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 the releases page for a new features summary)
  • Launch latest development version (Development version - expect longer image load time due to just-in-time build)

Using container images

You can also try Elyra by running one of the container images from Docker Hub or

  • elyra/elyra:latest has the latest released version installed.
  • elyra/elyra:x.y.z has a specific version installed.

Note: You can also build a container image from the main branch ("dev build") to try out features that have not been released yet.

To run one of the container images, issue the following command, specifying a tag of your choice.

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:

Refer to the installation documentation for details.


For detailed information refer to the installation documentation.

Prerequisites :

Install current release (for JupyterLab 3.x)

The current release version is displayed at the top of this page.

  • Install from PyPI

    pip3 install --upgrade "elyra[all]"
  • Install from conda-forge

    conda install -c conda-forge "elyra[all]"

Install older release

Installation instructions and JupyterLab support vary by release. Note that a JupyterLab build is required. Installation instructions are located in the release-specific documentation, which can be accessed by selecting a specific version.

Elyra 3.1 < 3.7 (JupyterLab 3.x)
  • Install from PyPI

    pip3 install --upgrade "elyra[all]>=3.1.0" && jupyter lab build
  • Install from conda-forge

    conda install -c conda-forge "elyra[all]>=3.1.0" && jupyter lab build
Elyra 2.0 < 3.1 (JupyterLab 3.x)
  • Install from PyPI

    pip3 install --upgrade "elyra>=2.0.1" && jupyter lab build
  • Install from conda-forge

    conda install -c conda-forge "elyra>=2.0.1" && jupyter lab build
Elyra 1.0 < 2.0 (JupyterLab 2.x)
  • Install from PyPI

    pip3 install --upgrade "elyra<2.0.0" && jupyter lab build
  • Install from conda-forge

    conda install -c conda-forge "elyra<2.0.0" && jupyter lab build

Verify Installation

Run the following commands to verify the installation. Note that in the example output below the [version] placeholder is displayed instead of an actual version identifier, which might change with every release.
