I’ve installed Anaconda3 v2019.07 on an Ubuntu 18.04 server dedicated to running a JupyterHub instance. I’ve had lots of trouble and I’m confused about several things I was hoping people here could help with.
- Does Anaconda install JupyterHub? The official list of packages at https://docs.anaconda.com/anaconda/packages/py3.7_linux-64/ doesn’t list JupyterHub, and this guide I found (https://pythonforundergradengineers.com/installing-jupyter-hub.html) shows installing Anaconda and JupyterHub as two clearly distinct steps, indicating that Anaconda doesn’t automatically install JupyterHub.
However, after installing Anaconda, I’ve found the jupyterhub binary on my system:
$ which jupyterhub /opt/anaconda3/bin/jupyterhub
and conda lists jupyterhub as already installed:
$ conda list jupyterhub$ # packages in environment at /opt/anaconda3: # # Name Version Build Channel jupyterhub 1.0.0 pypi_0 pypi
So, do I need to install JupyterHub as a separate step, or does Anaconda now include it?
- I’ve also installed JupyterHub’s
nativeauthenticator. The installation instructions for it (https://native-authenticator.readthedocs.io/en/latest/quickstart.html) include this step to generate the config file:
$ jupyterhub --generate-config -f /etc/jupyterhub/jupyterhub_config.py
Whether JupyterHub is already installed or I have to install it through conda instead, either way it will exist under the Anaconda installation directory (
/etc/jupyterhub/ will not exist on my system. How will I need alter the
--generate-config command to use a JupyterHub instance under Anaconda? That is, where do the config files go in that scenario?
