Jupyter Extension

Curvenote directly integrates with Jupyter, which is a computational notebook environment for data-scientists and researchers. By using the Curvenote Jupyter Extension - Jupyter Versioning & Comments for Chrome, Brave, or Microsoft Edge you can add, share, version, collaborate, and reuse your code and visualizations. By integrating directly with your computational environment, you can create Curvenote documents that are reproducible and remain interactive - no matter if you are taking meeting notes or writing a manuscript.
