Jupyter notebook server extension to proxy web services. This enables users to reach arbitrary web services running within their spawned Jupyter server and is probably most appropriate for services which can't readily be converted into extensions.
A user starts a web service via
New > Terminal:
echo "hello world" > index.html python -m http.server 8001
The service is proxied off of
/proxy/ at https://address.of.notebook.server/user/theuser/proxy/8001.
pip install git+https://github.com/jupyterhub/nbserverproxy jupyter serverextension enable --py nbserverproxy
