  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.

  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. 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…

  7. Preinstall seaborn for Python

    seaborn is the most popular charting tools for Python to produce decent charts. The majority of serious charts are produced from or touched-up by it, so it make sense to preinstall it.

  8. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. Save Python notebooks as Python files

    Add the ability to save a notebook (not download, save in the workbench) as a Python file (.py). Also, popup a dialog to choose the save location. Ask about overwrites with OK and Cancel buttons

  15. 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.

  17. 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).

  20. Easily download all my notebooks

    There used to be a button to download a zip file of all my Jupyter notebooks ... I would like that to be re-introduced
