A collection of helpers for Jupyter/IPython

Project description

This collection of Jupyter helpers 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!)
  • 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 detailed description is in preparation.


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.
