Integrating RStudio Server Pro with Jupyter Notebooks, Launcher, and Kubernetes
Launcher is a new feature of RStudio Server Pro 1.2 that is only available under named user licensing. RStudio Server Pro 1.2 without Launcher is available under existing server-based licensing. For questions about using Launcher with RStudio Server Pro, please contact email@example.com.
These steps describe how to integrate RStudio Server Pro with Jupyter Notebooks running with Launcher and Kubernetes.
The most recent
rstudio/r-session-complete Docker images referenced in these
steps include Python and Jupyter.
This integration is intended to be performed on top of an installation of RStudio Server Pro that has already been configured with Launcher and Kubernetes.
- RStudio Server Pro 1.2.5 or higher configured with Launcher and Kubernetes
1. Configure Launcher with Jupyter Notebooks
Add the following lines to the Launcher Jupyter configuration file:
jupyter-exe=/opt/python/3.6.9/bin/jupyter notebooks-enabled=1 labs-enabled=1 default-session-cluster=Kubernetes default-session-container-image=rstudio/r-session-complete:centos7-1.3.959-1
2. Restart RStudio Server Pro and Launcher Services
$ sudo rstudio-server restart $ sudo rstudio-launcher restart
3. Test RStudio Server Pro with Launcher and Jupyter Notebooks
In your browser, navigate to the RStudio Server Pro interface and log in.
New Session, choose
Jupyter Notebooks or
JupyterLab as the IDE,
then click the
Start Session button.
You can then use the Jupyter Notebooks or JupyterLab interfaces.
(Optional) Configure multiple Python versions or environments
The Python integration steps described above result in a single Python environment that contains both core packages for Jupyter Notebooks as well as Python packages for end users.
While this is a simple approach, this setup can result in issues if end users want to use different versions of the same package or if some packages conflict with core packages for Jupyter Notebooks.
If you would like to use multiple versions of Python or different Python environments, or if you want to install Jupyter Notebook in a separate environment from Python packages for end users, then you can refer to the documentation for using multiple Python versions and environments with Jupyter.
