The following steps will easily install and start a jupyter notebook on any active instance.

NOTE: The Jupyter install generally requires more disk-space/memory than an m1.tiny or m1.small has, so we recommend m1.medium or larger.

Step-by-step guide

  1. Login to the instance using web shell or using an ssh client.
  2. Type "ezj". Jupyter notebook will then be installed and configured within a couple of minutes.

    Code Block
    [myuser@js-157-60]:~$ ezj

  3. After the installation is complete, a url will be shown. An example is shown below. You can use any browser to connect to this URL.

    titleCAUTION: Closing your Jupyter notebook

    If you close your web shell or your ssh session, the Jupyter notebook will shutdown.

    4. To restart to your Jupyter notebook without reinstalling:

    Code Block
