If your project contains a Jupyter notebook, there are two ways to run it. The first is to use the jupyter nbconvert command in a shell script. The second is to run Jupyter interactively by launching a fully-featured Jupyter environment in a separate tab.

To begin an interactive session, click the dropdown arrow next to the Run button.

After the computational environment boots up, you will see a ‘Click to open Jupyter’ link.

Clicking this will launch the typical Jupyter experience in your browser, running live inside your custom computational environment on Code Ocean’s servers (live.codeocean.com). You can open notebooks (or a terminal), add or edit cells to try new parameters, experiment, and to facilitate debugging. 

Note that leaving an interactive Jupyter session running will continuously use quota until you stop the run, either by clicking the red X (‘Stop run’) or the trash can icon ('Cancel'). 

Every 30 minutes, your Jupyter session will ask you if you are still there. This is to prevent an idly open Jupyter tab from exhausting your quota. When you open an interactive Jupyter session, you may be prompted to accept notifications from Code Ocean. If you accept, you will receive this half-hourly reminder in your open Jupyter tab. If you do not accept, it will pop up in the Code Ocean capsule from which you launched Jupyter. 

If you do not actively signal that you are still working, every 30 minutes, your session will end and your work will be lost. Please pay attention to these notifications. 

Lastly, interactive Jupyter notebooks are run in a separate container from their associated compute capsule in your browser. As such, you will be leaving the Code Ocean environment and your regular browser/Jupyter settings will apply.
