The new LSST Science Platform Notebook Aspect (JupyterLab) user documentation


(Jonathan Sick) #1

The LSST Science Platform Notebook Aspect is a JupyterLab deployment that includes a preinstalled lsst_distrib and access to /datasets at the LSST Data Facility. Some of you may have already had a chance to try it out.

Today we’re launching a documentation site to help you make the most of it:

Take a look and let us know what you think.

I also want to highlight the Getting help page. As discussed in the #dm-lsp channel, we’re trying out a two-stranded user support strategy:

  • Use the LSST Science Platform category here on the Community forum for 99% of your questions and usage tips. Let’s try to build a useful knowledge base for everyone.
  • Use the #dm-lsp-users channel if you need to debug a backend issue in real-time with a Science Platform engineer.
