A collection of helpers for using IPython in Jupyter(Lab)

Project description

flake8 pypi-version

This collection of IPython helpers optimized for JupyterLab users will help you to:

  • Play a sound once the computations have finished (or failed)

  • Integrate the notifications with your OS (ready for GNOME shell)

  • Enable auto-completion for rpy2 (great for using ggplot2!) - now also available in jupyterlab-lsp

  • Summarize dictionaries and other structures in a nice table

  • Selectively import from other notebooks

  • Scroll to the recently executed cell on error or when opening the notebook

  • Use interactive (following) tail for long outputs

The examples are available in demos directory. Please, see the Productivity tips for Jupyter (Python) article for introduction and more code samples. For jump-to-definition feature, please visit jupyterlab-lsp.


For basic functionality:

pip3 install jupyter_helpers

To include interactive widgets:

pip3 install ipywidgets
jupyter labextension install @jupyter-widgets/jupyterlab-manager

To use advanced GNOME integration, run script from the installation directory (PRs welcome to propose a better setup procedure).

To check if you have required system libraries for the better GNOME integration, see repository.
