Jupyter Terminals and More
Jupyter Notebooks allows you to start more than just Notebooks. In this lesson you’ll learn how to start new terminals and create folders or files within the browser.
00:23 But that’s not the only thing we can do here. We can also create other things in the New tab. We can create folders, make a nested structure, we can give those a name. I’m not going to deal with that now, so I’ll just delete it again.
00:41 What is useful, though, in here is we can create also a terminal window. When I press the Terminal here, it opens up my shell that I have installed in my system, up here as well as in the browser. So, in here I can perform any terminal command that I want.
00:57 I can check up on which Python am I using, for example, and we can see that it’s the one that’s sitting inside of my virtual environment. So it just opens up a shell inside of the browser and I can do—any commands that I would do with my shell, I can do right in here.
01:17 We also have the Running tab up here in the Notebook server. In here, I can see which things I have currently running on the server, so we see that Notebook is happening here, and also the terminal that I just opened up. And from here, I can control them. I can Shutdown…
01:35 and it’s good to keep an overview of what is actually going on at the moment. Sometimes if you work with a lot of Notebooks, it could get messy, so it’s nice to take a look here and maybe shut down some of them to ease up on your memory. And the Clusters tab is something that I personally never use, and it seems there’s a reason for that, right? So don’t worry about that one.
