Notebook structure

Notebooks in Datalore consist of cells and worksheets.


A cell is a piece of either a code or Markdown text. When you run a cell, you can view the cell output, which is the result of code execution, or formatted text. This is how a Python code cell looks with its output displayed:

Markdown cells are mostly used as explanatory or descriptive texts to the code. A Markdown cell with its output looks like this:

By default, every notebook is presented on one worksheet. This means you can see all your work on one scrollable page. If your notebook is big enough and has a large amount of data, you may want to organize its content into multiple worksheets. To create a new worksheet, click the + icon in the lower-left corner of the editor.

All worksheets in a notebook share the same files, and newly created worksheets inherit the environment of those created earlier. For example, the default Getting started tutorial notebook consists of three worksheets: Code editor, Data analysis flow, and Team collaboration.
