    Currently there are two ways to upload notebooks in BDU Labs:

    1. Open My Data in the sidebar. Use the “Upload Data” feature. There is a known limitation of only being able to upload within /resources/data, but Jupyter will still recognize any ipynb you upload as a notebook.

    2. Alternately, open Jupyter. After it opens, drag and drop your notebook from a file window (e.g Windows Explorer or Mac Finder) into your browser. It will upload the notebook and flash messages at the top of the screen while doing so.

    I appreciate that these options can be a little obscure. We’re always reviewing ways to make the user experience in BDU Labs simpler and more intuitive.

  2. libspatialindex dependency for Geopandas

    install libspatialindex (http://libspatialindex.github.io/install.html) on the Jupyter environment

    libspatialindex is a dependency for rtree (http://toblerity.org/rtree/) which is a dependancy for geopandas (http://geopandas.org/install.html#dependencies).

  3. Publishing Results - Service similar to Rpubs.com integrated here?

    Considering this is being marketed as an integrated workbench for data scientists, why don't you provide a publishing feature like 'Rpubs.com' for this workbench, where you can post your analysis publications which can be accessed by other collaborators? This need not be just limited to R - but similar markdowns as well..

  4. Julia

    I've been working with Julia (and Jupyter) for over a year. It's pretty robust and Julia is kinda addictive: certain things can be written quite elegantly, and it's hard to rephrase in other languages. Spark integration with Julia is still early stage...

    I would like to see support for Julia in the Data Scientist Workbench. This may support development on Julia/Spark as well.

  6. allow others to access my notebooks

    I want to be able to allow other users of DSWB to be able to access my notebooks. I want to be able to collaborate with others without giving them a copy of the notebook.
    I envision this to be similar to how dropbox allows me to share my files. I should be able to point to a file and give another user read or write access to the notebook file.

    What do you think?

  7. Enable easy hosting of shiny apps on shinyapps.io service (http://www.shinyapps.io)

    When you create a shiny app using R Studio and R Shiny on a desktop PC/MAC environment - from within R Studio you can publish your app to the web using R Studio's shinyapps.io hosting service so anyone can access your app using only a browser.

    It would be useful for this functionality [that is, ability to post shiny apps to shinyapps.io from with R Studio the same way it is done from a desktop environment - which is essentially by clicking a publish application button in R Studio] within R Studio to be seamlessly available in IBM Data Science…

  8. Add Brunel visualization

    It would be really good to have Brunel visualisation package available in notebooks. More information on Brunel can be found at https://github.com/Brunel-Visualization/Brunel

  9. Pointer to getting started and tutorials on homepage

    Reported by Paul Zikopolous:
    I found it odd to have tutorials under My Notebooks -- since I never created one so I never went there, but I see it now. But something to consider - why not put a link on the main page
