Jupyter Notebooks

Jupyter Notebook is a web-based notebook environment for interactive computing, part of the mutifacted Project Jupyter (formerly iPython) which seeks to provide an open platform and toolkit for interactive and reproducible computing. It is a browser-based application that facilitates creation and sharing of documents that contain live code (over 40 programming languages), equations, visualizations, and narrative text. Jupyter Hub is a multi-user version for classrooms and labs. JupyterLab, released in 2018, provides a modern web-based user interface for Jupytern Notebooks. Jupyter's file format is a JSON document with hooks to interactive runtime kernels for specific languages and connections to big data sources.
