I’m working on a project that implements a Jupyter contents manager. Is it possible to add custom CLI arguments and have the contents manager use them?
I’m imagining something like this:
jupyter lab --custom-param value
I’ve been looking at the source code and it seems that CLI arguments are defined at the application level, so I’m wondering whether I have to subclass
LabApp. That seems too much for my use case so I’m considering other options:
- Have the contents manager read from a file (e.g.,
- Use environment variables
What would be the best way to achieve this? Any feedback appreciated!
