Development Status

This project is currently in alpha state. Most things work, but we might still make breaking changes that have no clear upgrade pathway. We are targetting a v0.1 release sometime in mid-August 2018. Follow this milestone to see progress towards the release!


The Littlest JupyterHub (TLJH) can run on any server that is running at least Ubuntu 18.04. We have a bunch of tutorials to get you started!


Our latest documentation is at:

We place a high importance on consistency, readability and completeness of documentation. If a feature is not documented, it does not exist. If a behavior is not documented, it is a bug! We try to treat our documentation like we treat our code: we aim to improve it as often as possible.

If something is confusing to you in the documentation, it is a bug. We would be happy if you could file an issue about it - or even better, contribute a documentation fix!
