Getting the source code¶
The source files for nbgrader and its documentation are hosted on GitHub. To clone the nbgrader repository:
git clone https://github.com/jupyter/nbgrader cd nbgrader
Installing and building nbgrader¶
nbgrader installs and builds with one command:
pip install -r dev-requirements.txt -e .
Installing notebook extensions¶
Previously this was done using the
nbgrader extension install command.
However, moving forward this is done using the
jupyter nbextension and
jupyter serverextension commands.
jupyter nbextension install --symlink --sys-prefix --py nbgrader jupyter nbextension enable --sys-prefix --py nbgrader jupyter serverextension enable --sys-prefix --py nbgrader
To work properly, the assignment list and formgrader extensions require both the nbextension and serverextension. The create assignment extension only has an nbextension part.
Installing Firefox Headless WebDriver¶
To run tests while developing nbgrader and its documentation, the Firefox headless webdriver must be installed. Please follow the Mozilla installation instructions to get Firefox properly setup on your system.
