This section includes instructions on how to get started with Jupyter Notebook.
But there are multiple Jupyter user interfaces one can use, based on their needs.
Please checkout the list and links below for additional information and instructions about
how to get started with each of them.
This information explains how to install the Jupyter Notebook and the IPython
While Jupyter runs code in many programming languages, Python is
a requirement (Python 3.3 or greater, or Python 2.7) for installing
the Jupyter Notebook.
We recommend using the Anaconda
distribution to install Python and Jupyter. We’ll go through its installation
in the next section.
For new users, we highly recommend installing Anaconda. Anaconda conveniently
installs Python, the Jupyter Notebook, and other commonly used packages for
scientific computing and data science.
Use the following installation steps:
Download Anaconda. We recommend
downloading Anaconda’s latest Python 3 version (currently Python 3.7).
Install the version of Anaconda which you downloaded, following the
instructions on the download page.
Congratulations, you have installed Jupyter Notebook. To run the notebook:
See Running the Notebook for more details.
Jupyter installation requires Python 3.3 or greater, or
Python 2.7. IPython 1.x, which included the parts that later became Jupyter,
was the last version to support Python 3.2 and 2.6.
As an existing Python user, you may wish to install Jupyter using Python’s
package manager, pip, instead of Anaconda.
First, ensure that you have the latest pip;
older versions may have trouble with some dependencies:
pip3 install --upgrade pip
Then install the Jupyter Notebook using:
pip3 install jupyter
(Use pip if using legacy Python 2.)
Congratulations. You have installed Jupyter Notebook. See
Running the Notebook for more details.
