As a Python developer, you often deal with data and need efficient ways to visualize and manage it. The Angular UI framework has emerged as a great choice for a rich and easy development experience. Read more about why in “How to Use Angular to Create Next-Level UI for Python Apps (and Why Do It).”

Many developers extend these gains with component libraries such as the popular Kendo UI for Angular. In this tutorial, we’ll explore how to use Kendo UI for Angular to create a data view that showcases advanced features such as grids and charts. By the end, you’ll have a solid understanding of how to consume, manage and display data using Kendo UI for Angular in your Python applications.

Making a Grid

In this example, we will explore how to create a grid using Progress Kendo UI for Angular, a popular UI component library. Kendo UI for Angular offers a comprehensive set of tools and components designed specifically for Angular applications. With its extensive feature set and customizable options, Kendo UI for Angular provides developers with a seamless way to create dynamic and interactive grids.

We will start by setting up a new Angular project and integrating Kendo UI for Angular. Then we will create a sample dataset and configure the grid to display and manage the data effectively.


Before we dive into the tutorial, make sure you have the following prerequisites installed:

  • Python (3.x or above)
  • Angular CLI
  • Kendo UI for Angular

Step 1: Setting up the Python API

First, let’s set up a Python-based stats API to provide us with the necessary data. Follow these steps:

  1. Create a new directory for your Python API and navigate into it.
  2. Set up a virtual environment to keep dependencies isolated:
python -m venv env

Activate the virtual environment:

For Windows:


For macOS/Linux:

source env/bin/activate

Now, install Flask, using pip:

pip install flask

Now, create a new Python file,, and add the following code to set up a basic Flask API:


from flask import Flask, jsonify

app = Flask(__name__)

def get_stats():
	# Sample data for demonstration
	stats = [
	"userId": 1,
	"id": 1,
	"title": "sunt aut facere repellat provident occaecati excepturi optio reprehenderit",
	"body": "quia et suscipit\nsuscipit recusandae consequuntur expedita et cum\nreprehenderit molestiae ut ut quas totam\nnostrum rerum est autem sunt rem eveniet architecto"
	"userId": 1,
	"id": 2,
	"title": "qui est esse",
	"body": "est rerum tempore vitae\nsequi sint nihil reprehenderit dolor beatae ea dolores neque\nfugiat blanditiis voluptate porro vel nihil molestiae ut reiciendis\nqui aperiam non debitis possimus qui neque nisi nulla"
	"userId": 1,
	"id": 3,
	"title": "ea molestias quasi exercitationem repellat qui ipsa sit aut",
	"body": "et iusto sed quo iure\nvoluptatem occaecati omnis eligendi aut ad\nvoluptatem doloribus vel accusantium quis pariatur\nmolestiae porro eius odio et labore et velit aut"
	"userId": 1,
	"id": 4,
	"title": "eum et est occaecati",
	"body": "ullam et saepe reiciendis voluptatem adipisci\nsit amet autem assumenda provident rerum culpa\nquis hic commodi nesciunt rem tenetur doloremque ipsam iure\nquis sunt voluptatem rerum illo velit"
	return jsonify(stats)

if __name__ == '__main__':

This code sets up a route /api/stats that returns a JSON response containing title and body data.

Start the API server by running the following command in the terminal:


The API server will start running on http://localhost:5000/api/stats.

It should look like this:

Step 2: Setting up the Angular App

Now that we have our Python API ready, let’s set up the Angular app and integrate Kendo UI for Angular. Follow these steps:

Create a new Angular project using the Angular CLI:

ng new data-view-app

Navigate into the project directory:

cd data-view-app

Install Kendo UI for Angular modules: Check for more detailed instruction on manual Grid setup and manual Charts setup.

npm install --save @progress/kendo-angular-grid @progress/kendo-angular-charts

Step 3: Creating the Data View Components

In this step, we’ll create the components necessary to display and manage the data using Kendo UI for Angular.

Generate a new Angular component for the data view:

ng generate component data-view

Open the data-view.component.ts file and update it with the following code:

import { Component, OnInit } from '@angular/core';
import { HttpClient } from '@angular/common/http';
import { GridDataResult } from '@progress/kendo-angular-grid';
import { process } from '@progress/kendo-data-query';

  selector: 'app-data-fetch',
  templateUrl: './data-view.component.html',
  styleUrls: ['./data-view.component.css']
export class DataFetchComponent implements OnInit {
  public gridData: GridDataResult = { data: [], total: 0 };
  public gridLoading = true;

  constructor(private http: HttpClient) { }

  ngOnInit() {

  fetchData() {
	const url = '';

	this.http.get<any[]>(url).subscribe(response => {
  	this.gridData = {
    	data: response,
    	total: response.length
  	this.gridLoading = false;
	}, error => {
  	console.error('Error fetching data:', error);
  	this.gridLoading = false;

Open the data-view.component.html file and add the following code:

<kendo-grid [data]="gridData" [loading]="gridLoading">
  <kendo-grid-column field="id" title="ID" ></kendo-grid-column>
  <kendo-grid-column field="title" title="Title" ></kendo-grid-column>
  <kendo-grid-column field="body" title="Body" ></kendo-grid-column>

[Optional] Open the data-view.component.css file and add the following styles:

.grid-container {
  margin-bottom: 30px;

.chart-container {
  height: 400px;

Step 4: Add the Data View Component to the App

Open the app.component.html file and add the following code:


Then open up the app.module.ts file and the following code:

import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';
import { BrowserModule } from '@angular/platform-browser';
import { DataFetchComponent } from './data-view/data-view.component';
import { AppComponent } from './app.component';
import { HttpClientModule } from '@angular/common/http';
import { GridModule } from '@progress/kendo-angular-grid';
import { BrowserAnimationsModule } from '@angular/platform-browser/animations';
import 'hammerjs';

 // Import the HttpClientModule

  declarations: [
  imports: [
  providers: [],
  bootstrap: [AppComponent]
export class AppModule { }

Step 5: Running the Application

Start the Angular development server by running the following command in the terminal, within the project directory:

ng serve
  1. The Angular app will start running on http://localhost:4200.
  2. Open your web browser and navigate to http://localhost:4200 to see the data view with the grid.

Congratulations! You have successfully built a data view using Kendo UI for Angular and consumed data from a Python-based stats API. The grid displays the title, and body as an example.

Feel free to customize the styling and expand the functionality based on your requirements. For example, a chart can very easily be added in this script, here’s how:

Adding a Chart

Firstly install the Kendo UI for Angular Charts package:

ng add @progress/kendo-angular-charts 

Then add the following code to in the data-view.components.html file:

  	<kendo-chart-series-item [data]="[1, 4, 5, 2, 1, 8]"> </kendo-chart-series-item>

The code snippet you provided represents the usage of the <kendo-chart> component from Kendo UI for Angular to create a basic chart. The <kendo-chart> component is used to render different types of charts, such as line charts, bar charts, pie charts and more.

Within the <kendo-chart> component, you define the series of data that will be displayed on the chart using the <kendo-chart-series> component. Each individual data series is represented by the <kendo-chart-series-item> component.

In the given code, we have a single data series represented by the <kendo-chart-series-item>. The [data] attribute is used to bind an array of values to the series item. In this case, the array [1, 4, 5, 2, 1, 8] is provided as the data to be visualized on the chart.

Again, Start the Angular development server by running the following command in the terminal:

ng serve

Navigate to http://localhost:4200 to see the data view in chart:
