If you would like to contribute to the project, please read our contributor documentation.

JupyterLab follows the official Jupyter Code of Conduct.



The jlpm command is JupyterLab's pinned version of yarn that is installed with JupyterLab. You may use yarn or npm in lieu of jlpm below.

git clone
cd jupyter-renderers
jlpm build

Link extensions with JupyterLab

Link geojson-extension:

jupyter labextension link packages/geojson-extension

Link all extensions in packages:

jlpm run link

Rebuilding extensions

After making changes to the source packages, the packages must be rebuilt:

# Rebuild the source
jlpm build

# Rebuild the JupyterLab staging directory
jupyter lab build

You may also watch the jupyter-renderers directory for changes and automatically rebuild:

# In one terminal tab, watch the jupyter-renderers directory
jlpm watch

# In another terminal tab, run jupyterlab with the watch flag
jupyter lab --watch

Publishing packages

jlpm run publish
# If publishing a package for the first time
npm access public @jupyterlab/<extension name>
You can’t perform that action at this time.
