Using the glam workbench
select a topic
The GLAM Workbench is organised by repository, collection type, or topic.
Each topic includes a list of Jupyter notebooks (& sometimes data sources)
For each notebook there's a number of different links
WHY are there multiple links?
- Each link provides a different view of the notebook
- Some are static and some are live
- Each view has a different purpose
static vs live
- static views let you look at a notebook, but you can't edit them or run code
- live views let you view, edit, and run the code
GitHub provides easy access to the notebook's code
NBViewer provides a nicely rendered version of the notebook that's great for sharing
LIVE LINKS OPEN IN
- 'Classic' notebook
- Jupyter Lab
- or Appmode
The 'CLASSIC' notebook
One notebook per browser tab
Multiple notebooks (& file explorer) in a single desktop
Hides the code & runs the notebook as an app
APPMODE IN ACTION
BUT WHERE are the live notebooks actually running?
- the live links open using Binder
- Binder creates a customised computing environment & loads the notebook in it
- runs in your browser, no need to install any software
- be patient! it can take a little while to load
CLICKING on a binder link
- inactive notebooks are closed after about 10 minutes
- your work is not saved between sessions, download what you want to keep!
