Alt Text


  • JupyterLab >= 3.0


Install using jupyter:

jupyter labextension install jupyterlab-code-snippets

Install using pip:

pip install jupyterlab-code-snippets


If it is installed, try:

jupyter lab clean
jupyter lab build



The jlpm command is JupyterLab's pinned version of yarn that is installed with JupyterLab. You may use yarn or npm in lieu of jlpm below.

# Clone the repo to your local environment
# Move to jupyter-lab-code-snippets directory

# Install dependencies
# Build Typescript source
jlpm build
# Link your development version of the extension with JupyterLab
jupyter labextension install .
# Rebuild Typescript source after making changes
jlpm build
# Rebuild JupyterLab after making any changes
jupyter lab build

You can watch the source directory and run JupyterLab in watch mode to watch for changes in the extension's source and automatically rebuild the extension and application.

# Watch the source directory in another terminal tab
jlpm watch
# Run jupyterlab in watch mode in one terminal tab
jupyter lab --watch

Now every change will be built locally and bundled into JupyterLab. Be sure to refresh your browser page after saving file changes to reload the extension (note: you'll need to wait for webpack to finish, which can take 10s+ at times).


jupyter labextension uninstall jupyterlab-code-snippets


pip uninstall jupyterlab-code-snippets
