jupyter-rsession-proxy

TravisCI build status

jupyter-rsession-proxy provides Jupyter server and notebook extensions to proxy RStudio.

Screenshot

If you have a JupyterHub deployment, jupyter-rsession-proxy can take advantage of JupyterHub's existing authenticator and spawner to launch RStudio in users' Jupyter environments. You can also run this from within Jupyter. Note that RStudio Server Pro has more featureful authentication and spawning than the standard version, in the event that you do not want to use Jupyter's.

This extension used to proxy Shiny server as well, however that functionality has been separated.

Installation

Pre-reqs

Install rstudio

Use conda conda install rstudio or download the corresponding package for your platform

Note that rstudio server is needed to work with this extension.

Install jupyter-rsession-proxy

Install the library via pip:

pip install jupyter-rsession-proxy

Or via conda:

conda install -c conda-forge jupyter-rsession-proxy

Example

rocker/binder contains an example installation which you can run on binder.

Launch binder

Multiuser Considerations

This extension launches an rstudio server process from the jupyter notebook server. This is fine in JupyterHub deployments where user servers are containerized since other users cannot connect to the rstudio server port. In non-containerized JupyterHub deployments, for example on multiuser systems running LocalSpawner or BatchSpawner, this not secure. Any user may connect to rstudio server and run arbitrary code.
