Code Snippets Extension for JupyterLab (multi-menus)

Project description


Snippets extension with multiple menu support for JupyterLab.

This extension is composed of a Python package named jupyterlab-snippets-multimenus for the server extension and a NPM package named jupyterlab-snippets-multimenus for the frontend extension.

This repo is forked from the jupyterlab-snippets project.


  • JupyterLab >= 2.0
  • Node.js


pip install jupyterlab-snippets-multimenus

Rebuild JupyterLab:

jupyter lab build


Add snippets in [jupyter_data_dir]/multimenus_snippets

To find the Jupyter data directory, run:

$ jupyter --path

Any path under data: will do. We recommend using the virtual environment shared directory (e.g. $VENVDIR/share/jupyter/) (please create the directory if not existed)

Snippets will be organized in menus following the structure of the directories. The directories directly under multimenus_snippets/ will be used to create menus.

The order of menus and sub-menus can be specified using a JSON file. An example is given in example_snippets/multimenus_snippets_config/snippet_config.json. This file should be put under [jupyter_data_dir]/multimenus_snippets_config/ to take effect. If this config file is not provided, the menu will be created with all files in the directory with a default ordering.

Quick start with examples

Example snippets directories are provided in example_snippets/.

To test with automatically generated order configuration, do

cp -r example_snippets/multimenus_snippets $VENVDIR/share/jupyter/

and start/refresh jupyter-lab

To test configurable ordering, do

cp -r example_snippets/multimenus_snippets_config $VENVDIR/share/jupyter/

and start/refresh jupyter-lab
