I'm playing with the Free Wolfram Engine for Developers together with Wolfram Language kernel for Jupyter notebooks. To my surprise, Manipulate/Animate still works to some degree:


enter image description here

But how to save this animation? The usual "right click and save as" strategy doesn't seem to work.

  • $\begingroup$ @MichaelE2 That does work, but I'm wondering if there's a more straightforward way. (Since the "save picture as" pops up when the animation is right clicked, I guess there may be a GIF/SWF somewhere. ) $\endgroup$ – xzczd May 31 '19 at 12:53
  • $\begingroup$ The "right click" calls up a ContextMenu, which is handled by the Front End. Maybe that can be or has been implemented in Jupyter. $\endgroup$ – Michael E2 May 31 '19 at 13:08
  • $\begingroup$ You can also export Manipulate[..] as a notebook and open it with the wolframplayer that gets installed together with the Wolfram Engine $\endgroup$ – Fortsaint Jun 26 '19 at 23:53
