Opens ipynb files on click. Reuses existing jupyter instance if possible.

Project description

Opens ipynb files on double-click

winbopen looks for the nearest running notebook server - if it finds one, it opens a web browser to that notebook. If not, it starts a new notebook server in that directory.

Installation on Windows:

pip install winbopen --no-binary winbopen


double-click on ipynb

If you're not on Windows, or double-clicking does not work run: `2

  • Linux/BSD: python3 -m nbopen.install_xdg
  • Mac: Clone the repository and run ./
  • Windows: python -m nbopen.install_win

NB --no-binary is necessary to let the installer write to windows registry. Binary wheels do not support post-install hooks.

This is a fork of Thomas Kluyver's nbopen focused on Windows platform with the following improvements:

  • one-line installation
  • original nbopen stops working at a certain point of time - this bug is fixed
