We store different kinds of data depending on whether you are accessing this app as a guest or if you are being logged in with your Open Humans account:
While you have to log-in through your Open Humans account to share your own notebooks, you can always use this site without registering to just open notebooks.
You can always delete your account and all associated data from the Dashboard. This includes the Open Humans authentication credentials, i.e. we won't be able to access your Open Humans account any longer.
Removing the authorization on Open Humans does not automatically delete all your data in the Exploratory; if you want this to occur, you should delete your account here before withdrawing from this project in the Open Humans site.
Sharing a notebook is a two-step process starting from
notebooks.openhumans.org that involves first uploading
it to Open Humans and then sharing it here:
Upload to Open Humans
add/replaceto start the import of the notebook. (If you have previously shared a notebook of the same name the existing one will be updated)
Description, along with some
Tagsthat describe your notebook. The
Data sourcesyour notebook requires should have been automatically identified. If not, you can manually add them.
Submit Notebookand you are done. Your notebook is now shared on the list of notebooks.
Check out this quick GIF below to see how it works in practice:
Getting a notebook copied into your own
notebooks.openhumans.org structure is a simple click.
When you see a notebook on the Exploratory that you'd like to run just press the
open as notebook or
which are on list of notebooks. If your notebook directory already contains a notebook of the same
name it will make sure to append the current date/time to the newly imported notebook, as to not overwrite the existing one.
See the GIF below for an example:
Yes, you can. Head to your Dashboard (
My Notebooks in the menu bar above).
There you can
delete a notebook or select
edit description to change the tags/sources/description of a notebook you have published.
Note that the
edit description does not give a way to edit the notebook itself, but just the associated metadata. To also replace the code notebook itself
you will have to replace it as outlined above in How do I share a notebook?
Unfortunately not at this point. But if you run your own JupyterHub installation you can easily set up your own exploratory for it. The required Jupyter extensions and the exploratory are all open source. Read more about it on the GitHub repository for the exploratory!
We are grouping notebooks by their name.
So if you are submitting a notebook called
but there is already another notebook of the same name we assume that your
notebook is a (potentially edited) copy of this notebook.
To keep things a bit more organized we are grouping these together and only list
the oldest notebook with that name on the Explore page.
If your notebook isn't an edited copy of an earlier notebook and you want to avoid being grouped with an existing notebook you should rename your notebook prior to publishing it.
