jupyter notebook, lab etc. installing extensions magic, paths etc.
It all started with the menu bar disappearing on qutebrowser but not firefox:
Broke everything when trying to fix it, leading to not working vim bindings in
lab. Now I have vim bindings back and can live without the menu I guess.
It took 4h of very frustrating trial and error that I don’t want to document anymore, but - the solution to get vim bindings inside jupyterlab was to use the steps for installing through jupyter of the extension for notebooks, not the recommended lab one.
Installation · lambdalisue/jupyter-vim-binding Wiki:
mkdir -p $(jupyter --data-dir)/nbextensions/vim_binding jupyter nbextension install https://raw.githubusercontent.com/lambdalisue/jupyter-vim-binding/master/vim_binding.js --nbextensions=$(jupyter --data-dir)/nbextensions/vim_binding jupyter nbextension enable vim_binding/vim_binding
I GUESS the issue was that previously I didn’t use
--data-dir, and tried to install as-is, which led to permission hell. Me downgrading -lab at some point also helped maybe.
jupyterlab-vim package installed (through pip), was enabled, but didn’t do anything: jwkvam/jupyterlab-vim: Vim notebook cell bindings for JupyterLab.
Also, trying to install it in a clean virtualenv and then doing the same with pyenv was not part of the solution and made everything worse.
Getting paths for both
-lab and classic:
> jupyter-lab paths Application directory: /home/sh/.local/share/jupyter/lab User Settings directory: /home/sh/.jupyter/lab/user-settings Workspaces directory: /home/sh/.jupyter/lab/workspaces > jupyter --paths config: /home/sh/.jupyter /home/sh/.local/etc/jupyter /usr/etc/jupyter /usr/local/etc/jupyter /etc/jupyter data: /home/sh/.local/share/jupyter /usr/local/share/jupyter /usr/share/jupyter runtime: /home/sh/.local/share/jupyter/runtime
Removing ALL packages I had locally:
pip uninstall --yes jupyter-black jupyter-client jupyter-console jupyter-core jupyter-events jupyter-lsp jupyter-server jupyter-server-terminals jupyterlab-pygments jupyterlab-server jupyterlab-vim jupyterlab-widgets pip uninstall --yes jupyterlab nbconvert nbextension ipywidgets ipykernel nbclient nbclassic ipympl notebook
To delete all extensions:
jupyter lab clean --all
