How to setup and use Jupyter Notebook in Fedora Linux?

Jupyter Notebook is an open-source web application that allows you to create and share documents that contain live code, equations, visualizations, and narrative text.

In other words, it is a document where you can run code, display output, add explanations, formulas, charts, etc. This makes your work more transparent, understandable, repeatable, and shareable.

It is used for data cleaning and transformation, numerical simulation, statistical modeling, data visualization, machine learning, and much more.

In this article, I will discuss how to install and use Jupyter Notebook in Fedora Linux.

How to install Jupyter Notebook in Fedora

We will install the Jupyter notebook on Fedora by using the pip command. But before that make sure Python pip is installed on your system.

If you don’t have pip installed, you can use the following command to install it –

sudo dnf python3-pip -y

Once pip gets installed, use the given command to install the Jupyter notebook –

pip3 install jupyter

Finally, if you want to close the notebook simply closing the tab will not close it the kernel behind will still run. If you don’t know a kernel is a “computational engine” that executes the code contained in a notebook.

So to close a notebook first you need to shut down by clicking on Kernel >Shutdown.
