Overview of this book

Jupyter has garnered a strong interest in the data science community of late, as it makes common data processing and analysis tasks much simpler. This book is for data science professionals who want to master various tasks related to Jupyter to create efficient, easy-to-share, scientific applications. The book starts with recipes on installing and running the Jupyter Notebook system on various platforms and configuring the various packages that can be used with it. You will then see how you can implement different programming languages and frameworks, such as Python, R, Julia, JavaScript, Scala, and Spark on your Jupyter Notebook. This book contains intuitive recipes on building interactive widgets to manipulate and visualize data in real time, sharing your code, creating a multi-user environment, and organizing your notebook. You will then get hands-on experience with Jupyter Labs, microservices, and deploying them on the web. By the end of this book, you will have taken your knowledge of Jupyter to the next level to perform all key tasks associated with it.

Using a Notebook server

Built into the Jupyter process is the ability to expose a Notebook as its own web server. Assuming the server is a machine accessible by other users, you can configure Jupyter to run on that server. You must provide the configuration information to Jupyter so that it knows how to proceed. The command to generate a configuration file for your Jupyter installation is:

jupyter notebook --generate-config

This command will generate a file in your ~./jupyter directory. For Microsoft users, that directory is a sub-directory of your home User directory.

The configuration file, shown as follows, contains the settings that you can use to expose your Notebook as a server:

c.NotebookApp.certfile = u'/path/to/your/cert/cert.pem'
c.NotebookApp.keyfile = u'/ path/to/your/cert/key.key'
c.NotebookApp.ip = '*'
c.NotebookApp.password = u'hashed-password'
c.NotebookApp.open_browser = False
c.NotebookApp.port = 8888

The following table describes each of the settings...
