  1. Notebooks do not load

    When loading a notebook (even an empty one), I see the loading icon spin for many minutes then receive the error: "Notebook Load Failed: We were not able to load the notebook you requested. Click here to try again."

    Is there an issue with my account profile?

      • 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.

            • 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

              • Intellisense-like popup-help. That is. hover over a function, class, etc. and get a short description

                Most Python IDEs have some sort of pop-up help. e.g. hover over a function (built-in, library, user defined) and get a pop-up showing the signature.

                Also highlight (e.g. with red squiggles) errors in syntax. Highlight in blue squiggles using a variable before definition, etc.

                • Ability to customize themes/colors for notebooks

                  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).

                  • 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

                    • 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.

                        • 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!

                          • 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.

                            • Jupyter notebooks go missing mysteriously

                              I have recently noticed that when I open the DS Workbench to go to Juypter, my notebooks are missing. It sometimes shows only 1 of workbooks, other times, it shows Untitles1.pnyb

                              In the attached screenshot, please observe that all my worksbooks that I worked on for my deep learning class are missing. Please fix asap.

                                In Python notebooks, you can use tab to autocomplete a command. Would like the same feature in R.

                                  • [R] Variable assignment using "<-" causes auto-tabbing behaviour in R notebooks

                                    Every time I assign something using "<-" as in:
                                    a <- 1
                                    the next line becomes auto-tabbed, because it thinks that my line is incomplete.

                                    Please make the notebooks recognize the "<-" as variable assignment.

                                    • 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.

                                      • 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.
