A next-generation Python notebook: explore data, build tools, deploy apps!



A reactive Python notebook that's reproducible, git-friendly, and deployable as scripts or apps.

Docs ยท Discord ยท Examples

marimo is a reactive Python notebook: run a cell or interact with a UI element, and marimo automatically runs dependent cells (or marks them as stale), keeping code and outputs consistent. marimo notebooks are stored as pure Python, executable as scripts, and deployable as apps.


  • reactive: run a cell, and marimo automatically runs all dependent cells
  • interactive: bind sliders, tables, plots, and more to Python โ€” no callbacks required
  • reproducible: no hidden state, deterministic execution
  • executable: execute as a Python script, parametrized by CLI args
  • shareable: deploy as an interactive web app, or run in the browser via WASM
  • git-friendly: stored as .py files
pip install marimo && marimo tutorial intro

Try marimo at our online playground, which runs entirely in the browser!

A reactive programming environment

marimo guarantees your notebook code, outputs, and program state are consistent. This solves many problems associated with traditional notebooks like Jupyter.

A reactive programming environment. Run a cell and marimo reacts by automatically running the cells that reference its variables, eliminating the error-prone task of manually re-running cells. Delete a cell and marimo scrubs its variables from program memory, eliminating hidden state.

Deterministic execution order. Notebooks are executed in a deterministic order, based on variable references instead of cells' positions on the page. Organize your notebooks to best fit the stories you'd like to tell.

Synchronized UI elements. Interact with UI elements like sliders, dropdowns, and dataframe transformers, and the cells that use them are automatically re-run with their latest values.

Performant runtime. marimo runs only those cells that need to be run by statically analyzing your code.

Compatible with expensive notebooks. You can optionally disable expensive cells to prevent them from automatically running, or configure the runtime to be lazy and mark affected stales as stale instead of automatically running them.

Batteries-included. marimo comes with GitHub Copilot, Black code formatting, HTML export, fast code completion, a VS Code extension, and many more quality-of-life features.

Inspiration โœจ

marimo is a reinvention of the Python notebook as a reproducible, interactive, and shareable Python program, instead of an error-prone JSON scratchpad.

We believe that the tools we use shape the way we think โ€” better tools, for better minds. With marimo, we hope to provide the Python community with a better programming environment to do research and communicate it; to experiment with code and share it; to learn computational science and teach it.

Our inspiration comes from many places and projects, especially Pluto.jl, ObservableHQ, and Bret Victor's essays. marimo is part of a greater movement toward reactive dataflow programming. From IPyflow, streamlit, TensorFlow, PyTorch, JAX, and React, the ideas of functional, declarative, and reactive programming are transforming a broad range of tools for the better.
