From pip you can install streamlit-bokeh-events==0.1.2
On github, there is streamlit-bokeh-events==0.1.3.
I downloaded the 0.1.3 from github and did:

npm run build

and then

pip install .

As it seems to work, when i run example from github, I get the error:

Your app is having trouble loading the streamlit_bokeh_events.streamlit_bokeh_events component.

(The app is attempting to load the component from ****, and hasn’t received its “streamlit:componentReady” message.)

  • If this is a development build, have you started the dev server?
  • If this is a release build, have you compiled the frontend?

For more troubleshooting help, please see the Streamlit Component docs or visit our forums.

from the webpage.

What should I do to build a component from github ?

Alernatively I tried:

  1. 'npm install+npm run start`.
  2. then run the server for the _streamlit_bokeh_events= components.declare_component("streamlit_bokeh_events", url="http://localhost:3001") part to run correctly, with npm run start.
import streamlit as st
import pandas as pd
from bokeh.plotting import figure
from bokeh.models import ColumnDataSource, CustomJS
from bokeh.models import DataTable, TableColumn
#from streamlit_bokeh_events import streamlit_bokeh_events
import streamlit.components.v1 as components

_streamlit_bokeh_events = components.declare_component("streamlit_bokeh_events", url="http://localhost:3001") 

df = pd.DataFrame({
        "x": [1, 2, 3, 4],
        "y": [4, 5, 6, 7],
# create plot
cds = ColumnDataSource(df)
columns = [

# define events
        new CustomEvent("INDEX_SELECT", {detail: {data: source.selected.indices}})
p = DataTable(source=cds, columns=columns)
result = _streamlit_bokeh_events(bokeh_plot=p, events="INDEX_SELECT", key="foo", refresh_on_update=False, debounce_time=0, override_height=100)
if result:
        if result.get("INDEX_SELECT"):

With this solution I get the error:
MarshallComponentException: (‘Could not convert component args to JSON’, TypeError(‘Object of type DataTable is not JSON serializable’))


File "/xxxx/my_comp/streamlit-bokeh-events-master/streamlit-bokeh-events-master/", line 35, in <module>
    result = _streamlit_bokeh_events(bokeh_plot=p, events="INDEX_SELECT", key="foo", refresh_on_update=False, debounce_time=0, override_height=100)

Thank for your help.
