Add a new notebook

There are two ways to add a new notebook to a workspace. You can create a notebook, or you can upload a notebook from your file system or a URL.

Create a notebook

    You are now redirected to the New notebook page, where there are several options:


    • You can provide a new title for your notebook.


    • You can select a kernel. Make your choice based on the language you want to use. The default IPython kernel allows you to code in Python. Find more information about the kernels in Kernel management.

    • Depending on your Datalore plan, you can select a machine. Read more in Pricing and plans.

    • You can set up the environment. Read more in this chapter.

    • You can use a secret. Secret is a set of environment variables visible only to the creator of the notebook and users with appropriate permissions. If you select to use a secret, you apply such a set of variables to this notebook.

    • You can select a computation mode in the lower-left corner of the dialog. Read more in Kernels and modes.
