Currently the notebook and notebook dashboard only works in a single directory at a time. We need to make it possible to browse the file system in the dashboard. Some other ideas related to this:

  • Users should be able to save particular directories as favorites.
  • Running notebooks should appear in a single location along with their directory.
  • We will likely need to create a persistent database that links notebook paths to a GUID.
  • We are not sure what the URL scheme should look like for notebooks in this situation. Should we just use a flat GUID based scheme like we currently have or should use do it github style with the full path in the URL. Personally, I don't think we can go with the github style because of the need to support notebook renames in the dashboard.

IPEP 16 (#3166) will address this, bumping to 2.0.

We still have to do the UI for this, but that will be tracked in issue #4918
