JupyterLab Windows app missing extension manager

I’ve installed the stand-alone Windows app version of JupyterLab, which seems quite nice.

However the extension manager isn’t showing on the left side of the window.

I can see some settings for the extension manager in the advanced settings, but I can’t see how this could be changed to bring it in.

Anything in particular I’m missing? Thanks!

Extension manager is not available yet in the Desktop. You can install prebuilt extensions with pip/conda in the latest version though. Subscribe to this issue: There is no "Enable Extensions Manager" ! · Issue #269 · jupyterlab/jupyterlab-desktop · GitHub for updates.

Perfect. I was able to install the extension I wanted via conda (the variable inspector via conda install -c conda-forge jupyterlab-variableinspector)



@krassowski Thanks for confirming that both pip and conda should work native through the standalone JupyterLab-Desktop.

I used the following to get jupyterlab-vim to work:

pip install jupyterlab_vim
