Yes, I’d consider this a tutorial, similar to the one for react that I have linked above. I’d like to collect a bunch of common challenges that I faced during my jupyerlab extension development attempts and ask for similar input from other new developers in this group. Around these challenges I’d like to outline some “story” like the tic-tac-toe game for react, which provides a simple, but not fully useless motivation to overcome those challenges.
Last but not, least, my idea is to have an implementation with a detailed explanation of what is happening where and why. An implementation that shows this story in action, but I won’t be able to do this with lots of help from your side.
If you think of a how-to as a collection of independent snippets (a cookbook?), this is not quite what I think of. But both a tutorial and a bunch of documented snippets would be invaluable and complement each other.
I’ll start a new topic with a bullet list of what I’d like to include in the tutorial hopefully next week. If somebody has suggestions already, please feel free to pm me.
