Managing multiple extensions#
One of the major benefits of Jupyter Server is that you can run serve multiple Jupyter frontend applications above the same Tornado web server. That’s because every Jupyter frontend application is now a server extension. When you run a Jupyter Server with multiple extensions enabled, each extension appends its own set of handlers and static assets to the server.
When you install a Jupyter Server extension, it should automatically add itself to your list of enabled extensions. You can see a list of installed extensions by calling:
> jupyter server extension list config dir: /Users/username/etc/jupyter myextension enabled - Validating myextension... myextension OK
You enable/disable an extension using the following commands:
> jupyter server extension enable myextension Enabling: myextension - Validating myextension... myextension OK - Extension successfully enabled. > jupyter server extension disable myextension Disabling: jupyter_home - Validating jupyter_home... jupyter_home OK - Extension successfully disabled.
Running an extensions from its entrypoint#
Extensions that are also Jupyter applications (i.e. Notebook, JupyterLab, Voila, etc.) can be launched from a CLI entrypoint. For example, launch Jupyter Notebook using:
> jupyter notebook
Jupyter Server will automatically start a server and the browser will be routed to Jupyter Notebook’s default URL (typically,
Other enabled extension will still be available to the user. The entrypoint simply offers a more direct (backwards compatible) launching mechanism.
Launching a server with multiple extensions#
If multiple extensions are enabled, a Jupyter Server can be launched directly:
