Up and Running with Jupyter Notebook

Postby yiboj » Mon May 15, 2017 9:02 am

The Jupyter Notebook (Formerly known as the IPython Notebook) is an open-source web application that allows you to create and share documents that contain live code, equations, visualizations and explanatory text.

The Jupyter Notebook is a server-client application that allows editing and running notebook documents via a web browser. The Jupyter Notebook can be executed on a local desktop requiring no internet access (as described in this document) or can be installed on a remote server and accessed through the internet.

In addition to displaying/editing/running notebook documents, the Jupyter Notebook has a “Dashboard” (Notebook Dashboard), a “control panel” showing local files and allowing to open notebook documents or shutting down their kernels.

Code: Select all
$> conda install hdf4
$> conda install netcdf4

3. Running the Jupyter Notebook

Launch jupyter using the following command:
