Vortrag: Hydrogen & Pweave - A better Jupyter Notebook?
A Jupyter Notebook alternative for reproducible research and prototyping
In this talk I want to show you how you can use Hydrogen + PWeave to get an alternative to Jupyter Notebooks that is fully diffable and allows you to leverage proper text editors such as Atom and hopefully in a not so distant future VS Code.
Jupyter notebooks are a great tool to help with exploratory research. However, they have multiple shortcomings such as being hard to version control and a general lack of tooling such as debuggers, variable explorers and so forth. In this talk I will begin with showing you my current setup when I work with Jupyter Notebooks. I will then show you how Jupyter Notebooks could work based on Rnotebooks developed by RStudio. At the end I will briefly show you how you can replicate Rnotebooks for Python using Hydrogen + PWeave in Atom and the work that is still required to get a similar experience for VS Code.
