I think qgrid needs to be updated in CodeBook.
Running a simple test, see first screenshot, results in an error in grid.py, which is part of qgrid. It seems this was a problem at the beginning of last year (see #287 on the qgrid github). The suggested fix in there. see second screenshot, to lines 879 and 916, is included in the current version of the file: https://github.com/quantopian/qgrid/blob/master/qgrid/grid.py.
According to Libraries&Extensions.md qgrid is v1.1.1 in CodeBook. Is it possible to update it, as as is, it is not useable?
I have contacted support and they suggested asking here.
(Apologies for the choice of forum - there's no "CodeBook" or similar.)
