This is the standalone Sage Notebook.
Most of the notebook does not depend on having Sage installed. Only a few miscellaneous functions are imported from Sage. We welcome help in making the notebook completely independent from Sage, or indeed, any other help with the Sage notebook. Sage notebook development discussions happen on the sage-notebook mailing list.
Install Sage, then do
sage -python setup.py install in the current
directory. Then run the notebook from within Sage as follows:
sage: import sagenb.notebook.notebook_object as nb sage: nb.notebook(directory="mynotebook")
This will create a directory
mynotebook.sagenb, and all notebook
data is stored in that directory.
SSL is required for OpenID and HTTPS support in the notebook. OpenID only requires Python's built-in SSL support, whereas HTTPS support also requires the Python library pyOpenSSL. In order to ensure that these are installed, please follow the instructions in Sage's own README file (look for the section about SSL). If you don't intend to use OpenID for user logins, or HTTPS for connecting to the server, you can safely ignore this section. In particular, if you're installing a copy of Sage for your personal use only, you probably won't need OpenID or HTTPS support in the notebook.
See the Sage Developer's guide, part of the Sage documentation, for instructions.
Miscellaneous Release Instructions
The following advice for release managers of sagenb is taken from the old SPKG.txt file that was sitting around. Most of it is probably outdated, but here it is anyway. It is modified slightly to cause it to make sense in some cases.
To cut a new release of sagenb, make sure that:
- All changes are committed.
- The notebook runs.
- The doctests pass:
sage -t --sagenb
- The notebook will be possible to install from the new SPKG without an internet connection.
- Any dependencies that must be downloaded can be added in
util/fetch_deps.pyand inserted in
setup.py. Dependencies of dependencies need not be put in
setup.py, but need to be put in
util/fetch_deps.py(until we can make it smarter).
- The Selenium tests pass (optional, for now).
- The localization file
pybabel extract -F /path/to/babel.cfg /path/to/project -o /path/to/sagenb.po(get pybabel with

setup.pyand commit this change.
dist.sh, optionally with a
-gargument to package the git repo too.
- Copy the newly generated
dist/directory from the sagenb repo to the SPKG's root directory and rename it
src/, replacing the
src/directory that is currently there
- Pack up the SPKG with
sage --pkg --no-compress(because everything in
src/is already compressed)
- Install and test the new spkg:
sage -f sagenb-*.spkg
- Don't forget to push all changes in the sagenb repo to github.

To add a locale to an existing install:
- Create a new locale, or download one from http://wiki.sagemath.org/i18n . To create a new locale:
- Compile your copy via
msgfmt sagenb.pot -o sagenb.mo
sagenb/locale/xx_YY/LC_MESSAGES/, where xx_YY is a locale code (en_US, pt_BR, en_UK, etc.)
