How Do I Get My Interactive Holoviews Graph To Display In Visual Studio (without Jupyter)?

I'm mainly using Jupyter Notebook / Lab when using Holoviews for interactive plotting.
How do I make Visual Studio display my interactive graphs and panels, without using the Interactive Jupyter inside Visual Studio?

Easiest solution is to set bokeh as backend of the renderer and then use bokeh.render.show(). This will open your holoviews plot in the browser:

hv.extension('bokeh')
from bokeh.plotting import show

show(hv.render(your_holoviews_plot))

Full working example:

# import libraries
import numpy as np
import pandas as pd
import hvplot.pandas
import holoviews as hv

# setting bokeh as backend
hv.extension('bokeh')

# going to use show() to open plot in browser
from bokeh.plotting import show

# create some sample data
data = np.random.normal(size=[50, 2])
df = pd.DataFrame(
    data=data,
    columns=['col1', 'col2'],
)

# using hvplot here to create a holoviews plot
# could have also just used holoviews itself
plot = df.hvplot(kind='scatter', x='col1', y='col2')

# use show() from bokeh
show(hv.render(plot))
