In case it helps, here are two projects that work the way you want with
trackball: imolecule <http://patrick-fuller.com/imolecule/> and igraph
<http://patrick-fuller.com/igraph/>. The code of interest is here
It’s been a while since I’ve looked at this, but I believe my trick was to
use _repr_html_ instead of _repr_javascript_ in order to make a new div.

Hope this helps,
