Developer Guide


Whether you are a new contributor or a seasoned developer, we’re pleased that you are working on Jupyter. We hope you find the Developer Guide is useful. Please suggest changes or ask questions about the contents. Thanks!

If you are interested in installing a specific project from source, each project has documentation on ReadTheDocs. For example, IPython documentation can be found on ReadTheDocs. Most of our packages can be installed from the source directory like any other Python package, by running:

pip install .

The Jupyter notebook needs some extra pieces to build Javascript components; the information about that is in the notebook contributor documentation.
