This PR adds a Table Data schema mimerender and adds nteract Data Explorer support for this format:

The current flow is to enable table data output from pandas, output a dataframe, and then click "nteract Data Explorer" on the tmp:/// dataset:

This is more a POC than a recommendation for the final UX. Couple of UX questions:

  1. Should we render the data explorer inline in the output as we do for other mimetype renderers? We could also register it with the data registry. We would need to add a tab bar to the output, if there are multiple valid viewers for some mimetype
  2. Ideally I think we could name the URL like notebook://<path>/<to>/<notebook>.ipynb; cell=<cell #>.<output #> to uniquely identify a cell output. I don't think the current rendermime system gives the output enough information to create this URL. You don't know which notebook you are in or what cell is outputting. (EDIT: You can do this, by looking at the parent of the renderer widget repeatedly to get up to the notebook and cell model. From there you can tell which cell it is and the path of the notebook.

Another idea for integrating this existing rendermine extensions:

  1. Query existing mimerender extensions and add them all to the data registry.
  2. Add new mimerender extension that renders via data registry and targets all mimetypes. Now all outputs will be registered with data registry. Also, have it render the default viewer inline, so it works similarly inside the notebook.
