  1. Insert Import for Python file not working

    The functionality to have a context menu for Notebooks and Python files is quite nice, but unfortunately it does not work for me.

    I have a larger project with many local *.py files that are imported, yet in my Jupyter notebooks the dot-string that the "Insert Import" functionality gives me does not resolve. I.e. I get errors like:

    ----> 3 import data.mycode.QFog.Dag

    ImportError: No module named 'data'

    I am suprised that this issue is not reported yet. It makes working with a large python project virtually impossible on the platform.

    • 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.

      • 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.

          • 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.

            • 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.

                Installing package into ‘/home/notebook/R/library’
                (as ‘lib’ is unspecified)

                • 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).
