Dash Bootstrap Components in Dataiku Webapp

Pierre_VDB Registered Posts: 1

Hello everyone,

I am trying to create a webapp in Dataiku using Dash and the Dash Bootstrap Components package. I have successfully imported all the necessary packages into the environment and there are no errors when I run the webapp.

However, the problem I am encountering is that the visual rendering of Bootstrap is not working. While all functionalities are present, the webapp appears without any Bootstrap styling—it looks very basic and unstyled.

Important to know, I am working in a local environment without an internet connection.

Has anyone faced a similar issue or does anyone have any suggestions on how to get the Bootstrap styles to render correctly in a Dataiku webapp?

Thank you in advance for your help!

Best regards,

    Hi @Pierre_VDB

    If you do not have internet access, you can't access Bootstrap, which is hosted on the web. So this

    app.config.external_stylesheets = [dbc.themes.BOOTSTRAP]

    won't work.

    You should download the library you need and store them anywhere.

    And then register them. For example, if the CSS file is stored in the local shared code:

    app.config.external_stylesheets = ["/local/static/file.css"]

    will allow you to use the CSS. `app.config.external_scripts` also exists and should allow you to use some javascript files.

    Hope this helps.
