Experience better workflow with google colab, local jupyter notebooks and git



python -m pip install colab-cli or python3.7 -m pip install colab-cli



Get your client_secrets.json, instructions given here, only follow till the part where you have client_secrets.json in a local directory


Go to the local directory with client_secrets.json

colab-cli set-config client_secrets.json


Now we need to set the google account user id, goto your browser and see how many google logins you have, the count start from zero

for eg. I have 3 login and I use the second one for coding work, so my user id is 1

colab-cli set-auth-user 1

🙌 Now You're all set to go


colab-cli --help
  • List local ipynb
colab-cli list-nb
  • Open local ipynb file in google colab for first time and remote copy for subsequent time
colab-cli open-nb lesson1-pets.ipynb
  • Now you have made some changes to ipynb in colab, get the modified file locally by
colab-cli pull-nb lesson1-pets.ipynb
  • Made some changes to ipynb locally, push it to drive
colab-cli push-nb lesson1-pets.ipynb
