2. Add Jupyter notebooks

  • Make sure your notebooks are available in a Github repo.
  • Copy the Github URL of your notebooks and paste it in "URL to download notebook" on your EKT lab.
  • Go to Github puller URL generator This page will help you generate a URL which can pull your notebooks from Github and load them to the CSDMS JupyterHub.
  • "JupyterHub URL": enter
  • "Git Repository URL": enter your Github repo URL
  • "File to open" : enter the info for your Jupyter notebooks
