2. Installation

2.1. Step 0: The browser

Step “zero” consists in installing a modern standard-compliant browser. Either Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome will work well. Try to avoid MS Explorer.

2.2. Step 1: Installation

The easiest way to install the Jupyter Notebook App consists in installing a scientific python distribution which includes it. In this guide, we will use the Anaconda distribution created by Continuum. Note that Anaconda currently (mid 2015) still uses the old name IPython Notebook instead of Jupyter Notebook App but the software is the same.

  • Download Continuum Anaconda (free version, approx. 400MB), python 3, 64 bits.
  • Install it using the default settings for a single user.
