  1. Allow direct linking to an existing notebook

    A good enhancement would be to allow direct linking to an existing notebook. Instead of automatically creating a duplicate, with a suffix, why not just open the existing notebook.

  5. Allow folder synchronization with Google Drive

    It would be great if we could selectively sychronize folders with google drive / dropbox as it would allow us to automatically backup the code as well as the data. In addition it would be possible to synchronize these with local devices which in turn can allow us to work on the code in local machines which are running in areas with poor internet connectivity.

  8. Getting started with the Workbench

    I think you should lead visitors to your site through a recommended path: What should they do first and second? Can they pick some in preference to some others and still learn what they want to learn? How much of prerequisite knowledge should they have? Hold my hands and take me in, instead of expecting me to poke here and there.

  10. I should be able to import the datasets in /my-data/ directly into a tool I want to use

    In the /my-data/ page, when I click on a dataset like "medals.csv", I'd like to see a popup menu asking menu which tool I want to use it with (OpenRefine/RStudio/Zeppelin/Jupyter). Whichever I choose, it should automatically open a notebook with the correct import command. E.g., it show create a new notebook containing

    import pandas as pd
    medals = pd.read_csv("correctpath/medals.csv")

  14. Fix Connectivity Issues

    I understand the convenience of these tools being cloud-based, but they continually have connectivity issues or lag. There are massive disruptions and it's a huge hassle or it's very frustrating to lose work. The quality of the course suffers.

  15. Display usage info within the My Data section

    The "My Data" section should show how much disk space is being used, versus the available quota. Both in absolute terms and as a percentage.

  16. I need an option to copy path of my file/dataset in "My Data"

    I have to concatenate "/resource/data" and "file name" every time I need to use a dataset in my notebook. It would be great if I had "Copy Path" in "My Data"

  17. User Design: Alternate colours for each row in My Data

    It's hard to see which filenames line up to which set of icons on the right-hand side. Could you alternate the colour of the rows (grey - white - grey -white) to make easier to read?

  18. Equivalent of screen command in bash

    Maybe there is a way to do that and I didn't find it but an option that allows the user to detach and re attach to a running script would be welcome.
    I would love to be able to disconnect while a long script is running during he night and access it agin in the morning.

  20. Enable iOS/iPad hardware keyboard in editing

    Hardware keyboard is not fully supported in iOS environment.
    Coding in iPad with a Bluetooth hardware keyboard is painful, as arrow keys do not work in editing.

    It would be great if cursor keys in an external hardware keyboard are supported in RStudio IDE, Jupyter, etc.
