CERN Accelerating science

Jupyter Lab

Dear SWAN expert,

are you planning to support jupyter lab? In my opinion, it offers a more complete multi-document approach to jupyter.

Dear Guido,

Thank you for opening this topic in the Proposals section.

JupyterLab is the evolution of Jupyter so it would make sense to move to it at some point. The priority we assign to that task will also depend on the demand from our users. The migration would require some effort on our side because we would need to adapt the customized interface we have now for Jupyter to JupyterLab.

We would like to hear the opinion of our users on this regard! Is JupyterLab potentially more useful for your everyday work than classic Jupyter?


Dear Enric,

I would also be very much in favour of having JupyterLab available. I agree with Guido, it would ease working with multiple documents at the same time!

Best regards,

Dear Alexander,

Thank you for posting your opinion here too!

Are you already using JupyterLab? Is there any other interesting feature in JupyterLab that you appreciate, besides the fact of having multiple tabs (e.g. extensions)?

I also take the opportunity to mention that we are preparing a 1-day SWAN users workshop at CERN, most probably in October (date is not official yet). There will be presentations by the SWAN team and also the users, we will discuss issues and ideas for improving the service, including new feature requests like this one. It would be great if you could attend and tell us about how you are using SWAN and what is missing.
