  1. Share ipython notebooks on github

    If you could provide an option to share ipython notebooks in DSWB on github, that would be very helpful.

    Thanks!

      • Jupyter notebook doesn't connect to the kernel

        Jupyter notebook when opened in labs for TEnsorflow training, the kernel is not connected and keeps retrying to connect to the kernel.
        I think the kernel is an IBM system and it is blocked from the websense of my organization network.
        Can you please provide the URL for the kernel so that I can raise a request to my IT team to bypass the URL/domain(s) so as to connect to the kernel successfully.
        Please supply the complete url containing the domain and subdomains, specifically.
        Thanks.

        • Internal Server Error.

          After logging in I can see menu tabs on the left, although i can't get access to any notebooks or data (which i created/uploaded earlier), and i get an "Internal Server Error." on the main page.

          • Why I encounter error 502 when I try to log in?

            Hey, does anyone knows if the workbench is undergoing any maintenance or something else? I used the Jupyter Notebooks just a few hours ago and it was good. But just now, I can't log into the workbench, there's always a 502 error. Is this a temporary issue or other things are happening?
            Thanks.

              • Tutorial #6 Not loading

                I was able to open the first 5 tutorial notebooks without a problem by clicking import on the welcome page. However, for the 6th tutorial I cannot open it using the same step.

                I put in this command !ls to list all the files and I see it there. However, i cannot access it from the sidebar.

                -Jas

                • need simpler interface for managing notebooks

                  Managing notebooks is not easy when there are many notebooks, even though when I create tag panel and arrange them into tag panels. For example, I need to delete some of them together, or tag them, etc. I need to see all of my notebooks as a tree in a bigger page.

                  • Recover deleted notebook and data

                    There is no confirmation to delete notebooks/data, or the ability to recover delete notebooks/data. This is dangerous! :O

                    • OAuth2 server asks for empty permissions

                      I ran into this small usability issue. When I logged in with my user (cangiano) the OAuth2 server asked me to approve special permissions, only to fail to show me the list of required permissions. Clicking "Allow" lets you through, but it might be confusing for some users. Furthermore the "Save Consent" option doesn't appear to actually save the consent at the next login.

                      See https://www.evernote.com/l/AAG97TbetTNMSImxEpixDDCN5X0QvxhySbI for reference.

                      • Registration page is shown after a user just registered

                        This is a small usability issue. After clicking on the link within the confirmation email, and setting a password for the first time, the user is finally registered. The page however will redirect him or her to /register after having just completed their registration. The desired outcome would be a redirect to the homepage (if the user session is kept) or to the login page (if it's not).

                        • need a way to manage running notebooks

                          When I have many notebooks and some of them are running, the kernel does not get started. So, I have to go through all of my notebooks, find the ones that are running and stop them. I need a feature to show me all of the running notebooks in one screen, instead of checking each of them one by one.

                          • Actively running notebook sometimes get oddly moved to "Recent Data"

                            Happens in Python (not sure about R), but sometimes when I am running a cell, as it is processing, the notebook in the sidebar "jumps" from "Recent Notebooks" to "Recent Data". The kernel remains active.

                            I will try to post a sample script that is reproducible, but right now this issue appears very inconsistently.

                            • Sidebar for the management and uploads should be on the left side

                              It is a bit strange to see the side bar on the right. Common convention is to have it on the left of the notebook.

                                The coloring difference between Markdown and Code cells is a little too subtle. Would be great to be able to change themes (e.g.: dark theme for Code, light theme for Markdown).

                                • Once I open "See all notebooks" or "See all data", I can never close the tab again

                                  In the sidebar, if I click on "See all notebooks" or "See all data", it opens a new tab called "Search - type notebook".

                                  Once this is opened, there is no way to close it.
