Jupyter Notebook (previously, IPython Notebook) files are used for interactive computing in many fields. They contain a complete record of the user’s sessions and include:
- Narrative text.
- Rich output.
When you add a Jupyter Notebook (with
.ipynb extension) to your repository,
it’s rendered into HTML when you view it:
ipynb_semantic_diff. On GitLab.com, this feature is available.
When commits include changes to Jupyter Notebook files, GitLab:
- Transforms the machine-readable
.ipynbfile into a human-readable Markdown file.
- Displays a cleaner version of the diff that includes syntax highlighting.
- Enables switching between raw and rendered diffs on the Commit and Compare pages. (Not available on merge request pages.)
Code suggestions are not available on diffs and merge requests for
This feature is an Alpha release, and might lead to performance degradation. On self-managed GitLab, if unexpected issues arise, disable the feature.
Jupyter can be configured as an OAuth application with repository access, acting on behalf of the authenticated user. See the Runbooks documentation for an example configuration.
