Fern Jupyter lab Extension

Project description


Fabulous Extension for Reproducible Notebooks

fern is an extension for the Jupyter Lab Notebook that tracks and documents your workflow in

To see a quick demo of it in action checkout the gif below:



Install fern with pip and install the jupyter extension:

pip install fern-labextension
jupyter labextension install @disraptoer/fern


To activate fern, add the following lines to the top of your notebook

%load_ext fern.fern
%track on "your amie API key"

To capture figures you'll also need to run

%matplotlib inline

If you want to turn the tracker off at any time just run

%track off

To start tracking agin rerun

%track on "your amie API key" 


Q: How does it work?

We determine the inputs and outputs for each cell by building an AST of your code. Each new cell execution creates a new leaf in amie, which is attached in the tree where the most recent change in the new leaf's inputs occured as an output to a prior cell.
