[IPython-User] Do IPython notebook from ANY computer?
Sun Nov 18 07:50:39 CST 2012
Update on the pogoplug experiment:
- Got the pogoplug hacked to run Arch Linux
- Got the ipython notebook up and running on the network - any computer
on the network could access it, even mobiles could through 3G (through they
had some issues in the cells)
Problems that occurred and got solved along the way:
- The tuturial on the web had some dead links to port the arch linux -
SOLUTION: googled around and found an updated tutorial
- Installed python >3 via pacman on the arch linux since it is default -
SOLUTION: removed all python installs and used the "*pacman -S python2
ipython2 python2-<package_name>*" this meant that in order to initiate
the notebook we had to run *"ipython2 notebook --profile nbserver*"
- The notebook started on a wrong ip address (127.##..) which meant we
couldn't see it - SOLUTION: changed the address in the notebook profile to
- Changing the notebook profile was done via dropbox. Opened a config
file and changed the settings and got it onto the arch linux by the
command: *"wget https:link.to.config/file.py*". Finding the directory on
the arch was a bit tricky until we discovered the *"ipython2
It would be great if there existed some easy way to edit the profile within
a ipython session.??
Next thing to do:
- Figure out how to install modules from within the notebook onto the
arch linux. Ex. getting openCV installed without using an ssh connection I
would imagine something like executing *%magicCommand pacman -S opencv*
- Create a URL address to access the notebook from an remote internet
- Get dropbox on the arch linux so that my scripts are safe in case
my hard-drive fails or get stolen.
- Figure out howto properly shut it down in case I need to take the
power off and move it around (such things happens :-) )
I think we got a long way and really close to what I wanted - in just a
day. My good friend (the expert) and I (the amateur with big needs) need to
find some time (often the most difficult task in such projects) to finish
and polish it.
