Jupyter Notebook

Github Actions Status Documentation Status Binder Gitpod

The Jupyter notebook is a web-based notebook environment for interactive computing.

Jupyter notebook example

Maintained versions

We maintain the two most recently released major versions of Jupyter Notebook, Classic Notebook v6 and Notebook v7. Notebook v5 is no longer maintained. All Notebook v5 users are strongly advised to upgrade to Classic Notebook v6 as soon as possible.

Upgrading to Notebook v7 may require more work, if you use custom extensions, as extensions written for Notebook v5 or Classic Notebook v6 are not compatible with Notebook v7.

Notebook v7

The newest major version of Notebook is based on:

  • JupyterLab components for the frontend
  • Jupyter Server for the Python server

This represents a significant change to the jupyter/notebook code base.

To learn more about Notebook v7:

Classic Notebook v6

Maintenance and security-related issues only are now being addressed in the 6.5.x branch. It depends on nbclassic for the HTML/JavaScript/CSS assets.

New features and continuous improvement is now focused on Notebook v7 (see section above).

If you have an open pull request with a new feature or if you were planning to open one, we encourage switching over to the Jupyter Server and JupyterLab architecture, and distribute it as a server extension and / or JupyterLab prebuilt extension. That way your new feature will also be compatible with the new Notebook v7.

Jupyter notebook, the language-agnostic evolution of IPython notebook

Jupyter notebook is a language-agnostic HTML notebook application for Project Jupyter. In 2015, Jupyter notebook was released as a part of The Big Split™ of the IPython codebase. IPython 3 was the last major monolithic release containing both language-agnostic code, such as the IPython notebook, and language specific code, such as the IPython kernel for Python. As computing spans across many languages, Project Jupyter will continue to develop the language-agnostic Jupyter notebook in this repo and with the help of the community develop language specific kernels which are found in their own discrete repos.


You can find the installation documentation for the Jupyter platform, on ReadTheDocs. The documentation for advanced usage of Jupyter notebook can be found here.

For a local installation, make sure you have pip installed and run:

pip install notebook

Usage - Running Jupyter notebook

Running in a local installation

Launch with:

Our Copyright Policy

Jupyter uses a shared copyright model. Each contributor maintains copyright over their contributions to Jupyter. But, it is important to note that these contributions are typically only changes to the repositories. Thus, the Jupyter source code, in its entirety is not the copyright of any single person or institution. Instead, it is the collective copyright of the entire Jupyter Development Team. If individual contributors want to maintain a record of what changes/contributions they have specific copyright on, they should indicate their copyright in the commit message of the change, when they commit the change to one of the Jupyter repositories.

With this in mind, the following banner should be used in any source code file to indicate the copyright and license terms:
