Flexibly styling and placing elements in Gradio Blocks

Hi there, I am trying write a blog doing EDA on a dataset. I had decided to use gradio Blocks due to its flexibility even though its only quite recently released. However, i am still facing a few difficulties regarding the placement of elements in rows and columns

For instance the following code would give the Markdown() and Plot() equal widths as they in a row. However, I would like to make the look and feel better by giving the Markdown() 70% of the width of the screen and the Plot(), the remaining 30%. I also in turn would like to increase the height of the Plot() to make it more readable. is this possible?

Here is the code that I have described above:

import gradio as gr
import pandas as pd
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt

demo = gr.Blocks()
df = pd.DataFrame(columns=['Name', 'Number'], data=[
    ['A', 101],
    ['B', 125],
    ['C', 300],
    ['D', 548],
    ['E', 5333]
])


def get_plot():
    fig = plt.figure(figsize=(20, 10))
    plt.bar(df['Name'], df['Number'])
    return fig


with demo:
    with gr.Row():
        with gr.Column():
            gr.Markdown("""

            """).style()
        with gr.Column():
            gr.Plot(value=get_plot())

Thanks in advance!

We will support column width’s directly soon, but for now you can apply custom CSS and elem_id’s, e.g.

import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
import pandas as pd

def get_plot():
    df = pd.DataFrame([["Al", 3], ["Bo", 2]], columns=["Name", "Number"])
    fig = plt.figure(figsize=(20, 10))
    plt.bar(df['Name'], df['Number'])
    return fig


with gr.Blocks(css="#md {width: 30%} #plot {width: 70%} ") as demo:
    with gr.Row():
          gr.Markdown("""Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua. Et ligula ullamcorper malesuada proin libero.

          """, elem_id="md")
          gr.Plot(value=get_plot(), elem_id="plot")

Thank you! Although I believe I can’t use this approach to set custom width to 2 Column() elements in a Row(). What I am trying to do here is set the first Column() to 30% of the width and then use it as a Table of Contents for the contents in my 2nd Column(). In short, I am trying to emulate st.sidebar(), is this possible too? @aliabid94
