Datalore 2024.3 Help

Before you begin

This section describes the Datalore system and its basic objects: workspaces and notebooks.

Notebooks and workspaces

Notebooks are your main Datalore files, files where you do your coding.

Workspaces are collections of your notebooks used to organize your work in projects that will share a variety of resources, such as data sources, SSH keys, or environment variables.

First time in Datalore

Before you create anything, you start your work in the default Private Workspace, which contains only one notebook, Getting started tutorial. By default, when you go to the Home page, you're forwarded to the Notebooks menu of the selected workspace, which shows you its notebooks.

Home and Editor

When in Datalore, you navigate between the two basic interface components:

  • Home: This is where you organize your work and results. The page provides access to all your workspaces, your own and shared resources, and recent activities in Datalore.

  • Editor: This is where you develop and edit the content of your notebooks.

Start with the basics

Some of the basic things that you can do on the Workspace page:

  • Create a workspace: read about why and how to create a workspace in Manage workspaces.

  • Create a notebook: in most cases, this is the first thing to do. Notebook is the Datalore basic document type. Creating your own notebook is a good way to start learning the editor and write your first code in Datalore. Read more in Notebooks.

  • Prepare data: connect to data sources and use them in your notebooks.

  • Manage your account: to access the menu with your account settings, click your avatar in the upper right corner of the page. Find more information in Account_settings.
