Download quickstart content¶
We are going to download an example project that includes notebooks for use in JupyterLab with the MyST extension installed.
Our goal will be to try out some of the main features of
jupyterlab-myst, including frontmatter, MyST syntax, and inline execution.
🛠 Download the example content, and navigate into the folder:
git clone https://github.com/executablebooks/jupyterlab-myst-quickstart.git

- advanced user interface elements like tabs, grids, and cards
JupyterLab MyST allows you to create and evaluate inline expressions using the
These turn your markdown cells into places that you can quickly evaluate a simple expression, such as:
- The value of the variable
- Expand a sympy equation
Most widgets will work directly inline, allowing you to place widgets or controls inside of callouts, these can be linked together as normal.
The MyST extension also makes it very easy to edit task lists directly in the rendered view. Then you click a task item, the markdown is automatically updated.
For now, that’s it for this quickstart tutorial, please see the content in the notebooks or help contribute to the docs to help document these features! Other tutorials to explore are:
