Viewing the Notebooks Locally

package

#1

To view the notebooks locally and interact with the contents, use the following commands (requires IJulia):

given in the following link

Pkg.clone(“https://github.com/JuliaDiffEq/DiffEqTutorials.jl”)
using IJulia
notebook(dir=Pkg.dir(“DiffEqTutorials”))

But I get the following alerts:

Need your guidance. And help

Looks like it’s been reported already: https://github.com/JuliaDiffEq/DiffEqTutorials.jl/issues/31


#3

This has now been updated with a v1.0-friendly way of doing it:

using Pkg
#Pkg.add("IJulia") # Need to do this the first time to install IJulia!
pkg"add https://github.com/JuliaDiffEq/DiffEqTutorials.jl"
using IJulia, DiffEqTutorials
notebook(dir = joinpath(dirname(pathof(DiffEqTutorials)),".."))

@StefanKarpinski, can you chime in on whether there’s a better way of doing this kind of thing with v1.0? Essentially it’s a project that I want to share and have people edit (since it’s a notebook to play with). On v0.6 it would dirty repos, is v1.0 safe for this since they aren’t working in a repo if it’s add?


#4

Doesn’t it create a new directory ~/.julia/packages/DiffEqTutorials/xxxxxx every time DiffEqTutorials is updated (and ]up is run)? Not sure if that’s desired or not though.


#5

Yeah it does. But it’s at least safe? I’m not sure if there’s a more standard Pkg3 way to handle this.


#6

FWIW, after https://github.com/JuliaLang/Pkg.jl/pull/785, files in packages are read-only when added.


#7

When I run the updated commands:
I receive the following alert:

#9

So @kristoffer.carlsson is the correct recommendation to tell users to dev here?


#10

Are you able to clone other packages? That looks like a network issue.


#11

Since DiffEqTutorials.jl is not a julia package (it contains no code) it seems easiest to just tag a release and tell people to download the zip / tarball. Or use git clone. Since it is not a package it doesn’t seem beneficial to include the package manager at all.


#12

When running the code from Atom, everything works correctly,


And Jumper opens correctly. And everything works.

Not so if I run from Julia

Using Ijulia
notebook ()

And in a new notebook I paste the code and run it.


#13

How do you download and upzip the tarballs using a Julia package command? Let me make sure there’s not an X-Y problem here: I just want to deploy some notebooks to users with some simple 1-2 lines of Julia code that would run on any basic installation. I don’t care if it’s a package manager command or not, I was just using the package manager since I’m not sure how to download the repo’s master using Base Julia without it.


#14

The commands that are given open up a new notebook at the directory. If you already have notebooks open, just go to the directory where DiffEqTutorials is downloaded to and you’ll find the notebooks there.


#15

My point was just that the package manager was written to manage packages

LibGit2.clone("https://github.com/JuliaDiffEq/DiffEqTutorials.jl", "DiffEqTutorials") or something? But dev from Pkg would probably also work, its just a bit odd since you assume that installs a package.

FWIW, I think it makes sense to bundle a Project + Manifest so that users can install the exact versions of the packages the notebook was built for. Full deployment could then be

LibGit2.clone("https://github.com/JuliaDiffEq/DiffEqTutorials.jl", "DiffEqTutorials")
cd("DiffEqTutorials")
Pkg.activate(".")
Pkg.instantiate()
