Adding jupyterlab-git to JupyterLab on Kubernetes


I’ve installed Zero-To-JupyterLab on Kubernetes. I wanted to install the jupyterlab-git extension. I tried to install from the UI. It suggested that jupyterlab had to be rebuilt after the extension was installed. But that build failed.

I’m guessing that jupyterlab-git will have to be installed and enabled in the docker image that runs for every user. I’m running the docker image jupyter/datascience-notebook:ubuntu-20.04

Are there instructions for how to install and enable jupyterlab-git when running on Kubernetes?

Hi! You don’t need to do anything special for Kubernetes, you can rebuild your Docker image to include the extension, test it locally, and it should work on Z2JH.
