Create a gist from the Jupyter Notebook UI

Project Description

### jupyter-notebook-gist

[![Build Status](](


Create a gist from the Jupyter Notebook UI.

## Installation

To install, simply run:

` pip install jupyter-notebook-gist jupyter serverextension enable --py jupyter_notebook_gist jupyter nbextension install --py jupyter_notebook_gist jupyter nbextension enable --py jupyter_notebook_gist jupyter nbextension enable --py widgetsnbextension `

The last step is needed to enable the widgetsnbextension extension that Jupyter-Notebook-Gist depends on. It may have been enabled before by a different extension.

You may want to append --user to the commands above if you’re getting configuration errors upon invoking them.

To double-check if the extension was correctly installed run:

` jupyter nbextension list jupyter serverextension list `

To uninstall the extension run:

` jupyter serverextension disable --py jupyter_notebook_gist jupyter nbextension disable --py jupyter_notebook_gist jupyter nbextension uninstall --py jupyter_notebook_gist pip uninstall jupyter-notebook-gist `

## Configuration

After installing, edit your file to specify the GitHub client id and secret.

If your file does not exist, you can create one by running jupyter notebook –generate-config. You can check the location of this file by running jupyter –config-dir.

`python c.NotebookGist.oauth_client_id = "my_client_id"         # FIXME c.NotebookGist.oauth_client_secret = "my_client_secret" # FIXME `

Replace the vars above with a working GitHub client id and secret. You can create one [here](

Here’s an [example of an OAuth application]( created by @mreid-moz for testing.

Then run jupyter notebook from the repo root.

Alternatively you can also pass the GitHub client id and secret as command line parameters when you run the notebook (please fill the placeholders accordingly):

` jupyter notebook --NotebookGist.oauth_client_id="<my_client_id>" --NotebookGist.oauth_client_secret="<my_client_secret>" `
