Overview of this book

Jupyter Notebook is a web-based environment that enables interactive computing in notebook documents. It allows you to create and share documents that contain live code, equations, visualizations, and explanatory text. The Jupyter Notebook system is extensively used in domains such as data cleaning and transformation, numerical simulation, statistical modeling, machine learning, and much more. This book starts with a detailed overview of the Jupyter Notebook system and its installation in different environments. Next we’ll help you will learn to integrate Jupyter system with different programming languages such as R, Python, JavaScript, and Julia and explore the various versions and packages that are compatible with the Notebook system. Moving ahead, you master interactive widgets, namespaces, and working with Jupyter in a multiuser mode. Towards the end, you will use Jupyter with a big data set and will apply all the functionalities learned throughout the book.

Sharing notebooks

The typical mechanism for sharing notebooks is to provide your notebook on a website. A website runs on a server or on allocated machine space. The server takes care of all the bookkeeping involved in running a website, such as keeping track of multiple users and logging people on and off.

In order for the notebook to be of use, though, the website must have notebook logic installed. A typical website knows how to deliver content as HTML given some source files. The most basic form is pure HTML, where every page you access on the website corresponds exactly to one HTML file on the web server. Other languages could be used to develop the website (such as Java or PHP), so then the server needs to know how to access the HTML it needs from those source files. In our context, the server needs to know how to access your notebook in order to deliver HTML to users.

Even when notebooks are just running on your local machine, they are running in a browser that is accessing your local...
