Opening JupyterLab in the browser app mode #5317

In order to open JupyterLab (or the Jupyter Notebook) using a Chrome's app mode (i.e., without the address bar, etc.), you can do something like this on OS X (on different systems, you'll have to set that environment variable to the appropriate path).

BROWSER='/Applications/Google\\ Chrome --app=%s' jupyter lab

You may also be able to, in your config file, register a new browser with that --app switch with the python webbrowser module.

The below link actually has a self-contained guide to doing this on Windows machines. I have JupyterLab up & running now, with the exact same feel as a standalone application.
