[ase-users] viewing structure in jupyter notebook and vasp calculator

I need help regarding some issues. I thought it would be best to put them
in one email rather than sending a bunch.
1. For ase related coding I use jupyter notebook a lot. For that I would
like to view my structures in the browser. Is there any interactive
plotting library that works well with ase? I don't need anything fancy,
just need to make sure that my structure is looking right
I tried a few but they need a lot modification. Also the ase view gives me
the following error:
FileNotFoundError: [WinError 2] The system cannot find the file specified
I am using conda3 in windows 10.
the method I usually use is to generate a PNG file with something like
atoms = ase.io.read('POSCAR')
atoms.write('poscar.png', show_unit_cell=True, radii=0.5)
and then follow that code cell with a Markdown cell displaying the generated file
The only catch I find with this approach is that the image will not automatically refresh when the file is changed;
to update the image I need to save the Jupyter notebook and refresh the browser window.
I would not be surprised if a more elegant approach exists, but this works for me!
(A similar approach is useful for org-babel documents in Emacs.)
All the best,
