I noticed that Interact.jl uses ipywidgets. I am currently trying to use the Python package chemview which relies on ipywidgets as well. While I can import it ok, it crashes as soon as I try to create a widget. Trying ipywidgets directly, e.g.,

using PyCall
@pyimport ipywidgets
ipywidgets.IntSlider()

gives me just a long error message. Looking at Interact.jl I don't really understand how ipywidgets is used. Is this non-trivial thing and just getting a python package to work directly via PyCall won't be possible?
