Updated on March 6, 2024

An IPYNB file is a project file created by Jupyter notebook, an application which allows you to create and share documents that contain live code, equations, visualizations, and narrative text. The ".ipynb" extension stands for the IPython Notebook. If you've received such a file or created one and now need to open it, Deepnote is a powerful and intuitive option at your disposal. Here are the steps you need to follow to open an IPYNB file using Deepnote:

Step 1: Access Deepnote

Step 2: Create a new project

  • Once you have logged in, click on 'Create a New Project'. This will create a new workspace for your IPYNB file.

Step 3: Upload the IPYNB file

  • Inside your new project, look for an option to `Upload` files.
  • Click on the `Upload` button and select the IPYNB file from your computer.

Step 4: Open the IPYNB file

  • After the upload is complete, you'll see your IPYNB file listed in the project's files.
  • Click on the file name to open it.

Step 5: Work with the IPYNB file

  • Once opened, you can interact with the cells within the IPYNB file.
  • You can run the code cells, edit the text, and utilize Deepnote's collaborative features.

Step 6: Save and share

  • All changes you make to the notebook will be automatically saved.
  • You can share your project with others or publish your work directly from Deepnote.
