jupyter_app - run Jupyter lab as a desktop app

Project description


Run Jupyter lab as a desktop app.


.. code-block:: none

$ pip install jupyter_app

Additionally, you need Firefox installed,
or download `NW.js <>`_ to your downloads folder.


.. code-block:: none

$ jupyter_app

Select a specific app runtime (see
`docs <>`_):

.. code-block:: none

$ jupyter_app --webruntime=nw-app

How it works

The ``jupyter_lab`` command starts a normal Jupyterlab server, but instead
of launching a brower tab to connect to it, it launches a browser window
that is made to look like a desktop app (including icon, process name, etc.).
When the window is closed, the server shuts down. This uses the
`webruntime <>`_ module.
