Stickyland: Break the Linear Presentation of Notebooks
A cool Jupyter extension.
If you are a JupyterLab user, here’s a pretty interesting extension for you that I discovered some time back.
Stickyland is an open-source tool that lets you break the linear presentation of a notebook, as depicted in the animation below:
With Sticklyland, you can:
Create floating cells (code and markdown): This lets you break the linear structure of a notebook.
Auto-run cells when any changes take place: The floating cells provide an “auto-run” toggle. If enabled, the cell will be automatically executed when the variables it is referencing are updated.
Take notes in Jupyter
Organize the notebook as a dashboard, as shown below:
Isn’t that pretty cool?
Try Stickyland here: GitHub.
On a side note…
Stickyland has been developed by the same team that developed the CNN explainer, an interactive tool to visualize the internal workings of a CNN.
We covered it in a recent newsletter issue if you want to learn more: CNN Explainer: An Interactive Tool You Always Wanted to Try to Understand CNNs.
That said, please note that today’s post, like the CNN Explainer post, is NOT sponsored. I genuinely found their projects to be pretty useful and impressive.
