Here’s how to get started with JupyterLab extensions:
Prepare your project¶
- Make sure you have enough memory. You’ll need at least 2 GB of RAM in your project to build JupyterLab extensions, possibly more depending on the extension. See Adjust Quotas for more information on how to add upgrades.
- Configure a directory to store the installed extensions. In this example, we use
.labin the project home directory. In Custom environment variables in project settings, set environment variable
JUPYTERLAB_DIRto the value
Click Save to store the variable setting, and restart your project.
Build the extensions¶
After restarting your project, open a Linux Terminal and run the following:
# check that JUPYTERLAB_DIR variable is set to `/home/user/.lab` echo $JUPYTERLAB_DIR # install extension(s) - this step takes a couple minutes jupyter labextension install @jupyterlab/toc @jupyterlab/fasta-extension
