Usage no npm install needed!

<script type="module">
  import nteractWeb from 'https://cdn.skypack.dev/@nteract/web';



@nteract/web is a NextJS-based web application that provides a nteract based interactive playground for users to connect to kernels hosted on MyBinder and run code samples against it.

This web application is a great way to test changes on the nteract core SDK without requiring a Jupyter setup on the dev machine. It is also useful for students learning about data science. Researchers can use it to share their work quickly with minimum efforts.
