Voilà Alternatives

    Voilà is described as 'turns Jupyter notebooks into standalone web applications. Each user connecting to the Voilà tornado application gets a dedicated Jupyter kernel which can execute the callbacks to changes in Jupyter interactive widgets'. There are four alternatives to Voilà for a variety of platforms, including Linux, Mac, Self-Hosted solutions, Windows and Online / Web-based. The best alternative is OpenBoard, which is both free and Open Source. Other great apps like Voilà are Shiny (Freemium, Open Source), Panel (Free, Open Source) and Streamlit (Freemium, Open Source).
