I understand Jupyter Hub is like a “server of notebook environments”. Do I have to use Jupyter Hub? Or is there a “cut to the chase” method for installing a Jupyter Lab notebook server on the cloud? I don’t think I need the hub; I just need to get going with my notebooks.
Yes, we have a resource for you. The idea is to set up a cloud Virtual Machine using an image with Jupyter pre-installed (not Jupyter Hub). Then
use an ssh tunnel to connect your browser. You can use
git clone to clone your notebook repo (say from GitHub) and get to work.
Please notice that the main README walks you through the procedure. There is also a sub-folder called ‘waterhackweek’ which is a “de-mystify the process” companion to the main tutorial.
