Also check out the main tutorial if you haven't yet, to get down all of the ins and outs

@LukasDrude
Ok, that is good. Did you see issues when connecting to your localhost? I get "Error connecting to localhost:8888!" although I am able to use Jupyter on "http://localhost:8888/tree#".
Jared Forsyth
@jaredly
hmmm are you on the new 3.0 release? I haven't looked into API changes for that yet
LukasDrude
@LukasDrude
Yes, I am on Python 2.7.6 and iPython 3.0.
Jared Forsyth
@jaredly
ok :/ I'll have to look into what changed there, sorry. For now, ipython 2.x works great :)
LukasDrude
@LukasDrude
Ok, I will set up a virtualenv to test it. But anyhow, I miss the Emacs Org-Mode reference on your starting page. :P
LukasDrude
@LukasDrude
Works like a charm. I will go into details tomorrow.
Jared Forsyth
@jaredly
Glad to hear it!
LukasDrude
@LukasDrude
Did you choose to remove HTML support within Markdown in contrast to iPython?
Jared Forsyth
@jaredly
Hmmm it used to be in there. If I had a reason, I can't remember it off the top of my head.
You can use the %html magic if you want
But if I can't remember why I removed it, I'll put it back in. It's a one-line change
LukasDrude
@LukasDrude
The HTML code does not disappear when I evaluate %%html magic.
Jared Forsyth
@jaredly
Ah yes that's right. I'm happy to put it back in.
LukasDrude
@LukasDrude
Does the "View Roadmap" link work for you? https://app.notablemind.org/#/gist/jaredly/9680269723596b0249a3
Jared Forsyth
@jaredly
:/. I recently changed es6 transpilers, and there's a lot of things that need a bit of cleanup
LukasDrude
@LukasDrude
Do you mind me pointing out this little glitches? There is no obligation to fix things.
Jared Forsyth
@jaredly
No it's awesome :) nice to have another pair of eyes on it
LukasDrude
@LukasDrude
I am really exited about notablemind because I used Org-Mode for quite some time and always had a hard time definding myself against being called an anachronism.
Jared Forsyth
@jaredly
haha right
LukasDrude
@LukasDrude
Did you decide against MathJax within Markdown as well?
Jared Forsyth
@jaredly
That wasn't a conscious decision, I just haven't put it together
Seems like a desirable thing, though
LukasDrude
@LukasDrude
I wonder how much your project inherits from Jupyter (when you decide to switch). Probably most of the behavior of Jupyter remains?
Jared Forsyth
@jaredly
Was there much in the way of new behavior between jupyter and ipython2.x?
LukasDrude
@LukasDrude
I don't know about implementation details. I just know that Jupyter aims to be language agnostic. Thus, the target is to allow a wider range of kernels. Regarding my Markdown question: Maybe many questions (i.e. why is there no inline MathJax/ why is there no HTML) are obsolete once you changed to Jupyter because the internals (may) change anyhow.
Jared Forsyth
@jaredly
Ah yes. (just looked at the release notes). The "switch between kernels" thing is something I definitely have to get into NM -- I've planned to do that for a while.
Also -- coming from Org mode, let me know what features you miss :)
LukasDrude
@LukasDrude
1. Probably unsolvable: Having a file format which is easy to diff.
2. Bibtex-Integration
3. Tags
4. Properties which I may add to cells (i.e. a best-before-date until I have to review the cell content)
5. A more condensed view (which I may do by chaning your css files locally)
6. Interesting way to edit tables (as opposed to CodeMirror for Markdown): Whenever I press <TAB> it aligns all "|" marks.
Don't take this list too seriously.
Jared Forsyth
@jaredly
Cool!
1. tags are definitely coming
2. I'd be interesting in having a variety of themes (some people like "breathing room", others like efficiency)
3. A gui table editor is in the works
LukasDrude
@LukasDrude
for 3.: My personal opinion is, that it does not need to be a real GUI. A realining table editor just within CodeMirror is fine: http://orgmode.org/manual/Built_002din-table-editor.html#Built_002din-table-editor
Jared Forsyth
@jaredly
from an implementation perspective, gui would actually be a bit cleaner
LukasDrude
@LukasDrude
Ok, I understand. But you will probably leave all Markdown/ MathJax/ HTML within cells as is (code), right?
Jared Forsyth
@jaredly
yeah
markdown is much better than wysinwyg
LukasDrude
@LukasDrude
That's so true.
LukasDrude
@LukasDrude
I read the port of your tutorial regarding images, but how did you acutally do it:
a) I can't drag and drop to a text cell.
b) I can't copy/ paste to a text cell.
Jared Forsyth
@jaredly
But the click-to-upload works?
Oh -- it's a node types thing. Right click on the cell, and change it to an image node
Or t i for the keyboard shortcut in normal mode. alt+t i in edit mode
LukasDrude
@LukasDrude
Ok, Click-To-Upload works. (a) and (b) do not work on image cells as well (I am on chromium with KDE).
Jared Forsyth
@jaredly
drag&drop is not yet supported, but copy/paste should work :/
ok, I see it breaking for me too. I'll have to look into that. The way I tend to use it is "screenshot to clipboard", which I guess does a different clipboard thing than "right-click copy image"
LukasDrude
@LukasDrude
Ok, so I was just looking for a way to get a screenshot from "ksnapshot" to the notebook without an additional step to save the file locally.
I do not necessarily need drag&drop but this is how it works for me within iPython.
Extension doc: https://github.com/ipython-contrib/IPython-notebook-extensions/wiki/drag-and-drop
Extension code maybe for reference: https://github.com/ipython-contrib/IPython-notebook-extensions/blob/master/usability/dragdrop/main.js
Jared Forsyth
@jaredly
Yeah, screenshot + paste is my normal workflow too
I'll look into what needs to be done to get cross-env compatability with the clipboard. eventually I plan on drag+drop working, but it's not a priority
LukasDrude
@LukasDrude
So how do you do it currently? With Ctrl-C Ctrl-V on an image cell?
Jared Forsyth
@jaredly
My screenshot keyboard shortcut (using xscreenshot) puts the screenshot right into the clipboard. Then go to the image cell, and ctrl+v
LukasDrude
@LukasDrude
When having the image cell highlighted (pink) and pressing ctrl+v, it yanks so other cells which I copied before. I installed xscreenshot to test your workflow but it didn't work. I will try with more patience tomorrow.
