Git for Jupyter Notebook¶
The ClearML Jupyter plugin is a Jupyter Notebook extension which enables you to push ipython notebooks to a Git repository, using a git button (see Screenshots) added to the notebook toolbar.
After saving a notebook, you can push the notebook to a predefined Git repository (currently, pushing to a specific predefined branch is supported).
When you click the version-control button, the following happens:
.ipynbfile is pushed to the Git repository based on the folder structure in which it is located.
The notebook is converted to a
.pyscript, pushed alongside the
requirements.txtis created, updated according to the notebook imports, and pushed alongside the
For example, if you have the following two repositories:
repo1/ ├── .git └── experiment1/ └── notebook.ipynb repo2/ ├── .git └── experiment2/ └── notebook2.ipynb
When you click the version-control button,
notebook1.ipynb is pushed to the
repo1 repository, and
notebook2.ipynb is pushed to the
To select the predefined branch into which the files will be pushed, use
git checkout on the jupyter host machine.
For example, switch to
$ cd ~/repo2 $ git checkout branch2
After switching, the jupyter notebook pushes to the
branch2 branch in the
To use the plugin, execute the following script which installs the plugin and configures Jupyter to use it:
pip install clearml-jupyter-plugin if [ ! -f ~/.jupyter/jupyter_notebook_config.py ]; then jupyter notebook --generate-config fi echo 'c.NotebookApp.disable_check_xsrf = True' >> ~/.jupyter/jupyter_notebook_config.py jupyter serverextension enable --py clearml-jupyter-plugin sudo jupyter nbextension install --py clearml-jupyter-plugin
To enable the extension for all notebooks:
jupyter nbextension enable --py clearml-jupyter-plugin
Using the plugin¶
After the installing the plugin and configuring Jupyter:
Clone your Git repository to a folder that will be assigned to a specific user.
Checkout a specific branch for the current user.
Make sure git is configured with the correct credentials (we recommend verifying a password/passphrase is required when pushing).
Run Jupyter Notebook.
Any commit/push of notebooks from this specific folder are to the checked out branch.
An additional button to the Jupyter toolbar:
