Add & Link Notebooks

Notebooks can be created in Jupyter then saved to a Curvenote project via the extension or web app. You can add blank notebooks or notebooks that have already been written and run. Notebooks that already exist on Curvenote can also be imported and linked to a local .ipynb file.

      • a new/empty notebook.
      • the notebook that you uploaded previously and need to link. Any changes made to the local copy since upload will be lost!
  • ◀️ Expand the Curvenote Jupyter extension panel.
  • Paste the previously copied oxa link into the Import Notebook section
    • Click IMPORT NOTEBOOK
    • A ⚠️ warning will appear about overwriting your notebook.
      • Click IMPORT
