  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  4. benchmark to kaggle script

    learn something from kaggle script function, especially public data set

    of course i prefer use dswb to kaggle script, because dswb is more flexible

  5. 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).

  8. 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.

  10. 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.

  12. 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"

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

  15. When I drag and drop my dataset into Jupyter, it does not go to "My Data" folder

    When I drag and drop a dataset (e.g. .csv file) into Jupyter, it goes into /resource/ folder, and not into /resource/data/ folder. So, I cannot see my dataset in "My Data"

  17. I want to be able to "Auto Update" and also have "Update Notifications" on my preferences

    There are 2 scenarios:
    1) I don't want to wait for updating every time that an update is available. So, it would be nice to have an option for "Auto Update". So, my DSWB get updated automatically once there is a new update, so I don't have to click on "Update Workbench" every time.

    2) I don't want my DSWB to get updated automatically. I also want to skip the update message that is shown when I open my DSWB. But, I need an "Update Notification" somewhere to show me that there is an update available, so I can click…

  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.

  19. Service status page

    Whenever there is an outage, there should be a status page that provides users with the status and estimated up time.
