Euporie Notebook

In euporie’s notebooks editor, you can interactively edit and run Jupyter noteboks from the comfort of your terminal.

Euporie supports most of the features of Jupyter Notebooks, so users of Jupyter should find it intuitive to use.

User Guide

Creating a New Notebook

To create a new notebook from the command line, launch euporie with the desired new notebook file path as an argument:

$ euporie-notebook ./my-new-notebook.ipynb

To create a new notebook from within the TUI editor, select File ‣ New in the menus, or press the Ctrl+N keyboard shortcut.

Editing a Cell

The currently selected cell can be edited by pressing Enter, which will enter Edit Mode. This focuses the cell’s input text area, and allows you to edit the cell’s content.

To exit Edit Mode, you can press the Esc key when you are done editing, or you can run the cell.

Running a Cell

To run the currently selected cell, you can press Ctrl+Enter (providing your terminal suports this key-binding; you can also use Ctrl+e).

Alternatively, you can select Run ‣ Run selected cells in the menu.

Opening an Existing Notebook

To open a notebook from the command line, launch euporie with the notebook file path as an argument:

$ euporie-notebook ./my-notebook.ipynb

To open a notebook from within the TUI editor, select File ‣ Open in the menus, or press the Ctrl+O keyboard shortcut. Enter the path of the notebook you wish to open into the file open dialog and press OK.

Adding a new cell

You can press b to add a new cell below the currently selected cell. You can also press a to add a new cell above the currently selected cell.
