  1. The black bar on the top takes a lot of screen estate.

    Have the thick black bar at the top hidable so that screen estate can be conserved.

  2. Run spellcheck/grammar check on text within markdown cells

    I have been seeing a number of incorrect spellings and other typos throughout the tutorials.

  3. I'd like to see video lectures within a notebook so I can type and run code while I watch lectures

    Every online course on programming tells me to download a notebook and run it on Continuum.io (Jupyter). Why can't I watch a video and practice coding at the same time? I'd like to be able to have a notebook open so I can try coding while I watch a video lecture. Better yet, there are many meetup recordings out there on programming, data science, and big data. I wish I could rewatch them with a notebook open -- all in the same interface.

  4. 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.

  6. ftp/sftp support to upload/download data

    It would be great if you could handle the /resources folder also with a ftp client / your favorite text editor with ftp connection

  7. 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.

  8. File and Directory management

    Add basic file/directory management, so that we can easily create/delete directories on the workbench and move/copy files and directories around.

  11. Notify me when my workbench finishes awakening from hibernation

    I'd like an e-mail or something to tell me when my account is back up from hibernation, because it takes a long time to wake up (30min).

  14. Logos on left sidebar of DSWB aren't very nice

    The logos for Juypter, Zeppelin and RStudio look inconsistent and unprofessional. The previous version was better.

  16. 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.

  18. 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"

  19. Can we have terminal (or QT terminal in ipython)? That would also solve the "Add basic file/directory management" problem.
