I want to insert a live url link into my marker's popup in Python Folium but I don't know what class and code I need to use. my code is a simple one:

folium.Marker(location[i], popup="www.dingsbums.lu").add_to(marker_cluster)

I just want the url (here 'www.dingsbums.lu') to be a link, not string...

  • You need to properly format your HTML. Jan 28 at 18:00
  • @s.k: Thank you for your comment...I followed your instruction and now my code seems like this: url=folium.Html('<a href="w3schools.com"></a>') folium.Marker(location[i], popup=url).add_to(marker_cluster) but now I have just an empty popup! Any idea...?

  • Do not blindly copy7paste stuff, make sure you understand what href does. Look at the URL.This should answer your question; gis.stackexchange.com/questions/185897/… Jan 30 at 11:48
  • @s.k: Thank you for your comment...I followed the link instructions but nothing is changed in my map. Can you help to find and solve the problem?

This code snippet should do the job. You can then simply replace the URL and the text to be displayed (it can actually be the same as the URL) with the ones you want.
E.g. "<a href=https://www.dingsbums.lu>https://www.dingsbums.lu</a>"

import folium
m = folium.Map(location=[49.611622, 6.131935], zoom_start=16,)

tooltip = "Click me!"

marker = folium.Marker(
    [49.61068, 6.13127],
    popup="<a href=https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Place_Guillaume_II>Place Guillaume II</a>",


Then, when displaying the map m it should show you the following, with a clickable URL in the popup:

Resulting map Notice that the URL is shown on the bottom left of the browser when the mouse is over the corresponding link in the popup.

More information can be found on the folium documentation: https://python-visualization.github.io/folium/quickstart.html

And how the href attribute actually works can be discovered here with code samples: https://www.w3schools.com/tags/att_href.asp

    Thanks a lot. You did it well and now the problem is solved. It seems the problem of my code relied on two issues: first, I'd used "' more than needed. Secondly,It's necessary to give marker's arguments explicitly.
