Running your first Jupyter notebook on Palmetto

In this section, you will:

  1. Download a notebook file (.ipynb) to your local machine (laptop or workstation)
  2. Upload this file to the Palmetto cluster
  3. Run it using Jupyter on Palmetto

Downloading the notebook to your local machine

All Jupyter notebooks have the extension (.ipynb) - a result of the Jupyter project being a fork of the IPython project. The notebook for this exercise can be downloaded here. If simply clicking on the link doesn't work, try right-clicking on it and selecting "Save Link As..."

Uploading the notebook to the Palmetto cluster

You can upload any file to the Palmetto cluster via the Jupyter dashboard. Click on the "Upload" button on the top right of the file explorer:

Be aware that there is a limit on the size of files you can upload in this way (~25 MB). Once you've uploaded the file, it should appear in the file browser:
