OverviewDue to an issue with the build procedure for the prebuilt Jupyter notebook images in Kaptain 1.1.0, the jupyterlab-git extension was accidentally disabled. This prevents you from using the Git integrations when using the default Jupyterlab notebooks.
The issue has been corrected for the next release of Kaptain.
In the meantime, it is possible to reenable the Juptyer git extension by following this procedure:
- Launch a new 'terminal' tab in your notebook
- Issue the following commands:
pip install --upgrade jupyterlab-git==0.20.0 jupyter lab build
When the build completes, refresh your notebook tab, and you should see the Git plugin in the sidebar.
Note that the rebuild of jupyterlab requires a fair amount of memory. The notebook server needs approximagely 4GiB of memory to complete the build. You will receive an error from the build step if you try this on a notebook started with the default of 2GiB. Also note you will need to perform this step each time you launch a new Notebook server as the changes are not persisted.
