Understandably, it is a little tricky to do. In fact, I think the documentation you are referring to is slightly wrong presently, and that is because things are in flux about handling some aspects of the proxy forwarding, I believe.
You don’t want the
Those directions you referenced will get you very close, but then you still at present need to change one more thing in the link the MyBinder.org page generates. You cannot just click
launch. The MyBinder.org page presently makes a link with
urlpath is needed for the forwarding/proxy stuff (or at least I think that is reason).
Example of generating one at MyBinder.org following through to step #4 of what you posted from the documentation:
The URL it offers at this point is close. Next, you need to copy what is under
Copy the URL below...
to your favorite text editor, and then need to change
, and it is done. So for this example the correct result that will open a Voila dashboard directly via MyBinder is:
Then you can paste the edited URL in your browser, hit return, and then it will launch directly to the Voila dashboard version of your page.
Of course, you’d need to do a similar edit in the code it makes for the markdown or rst version of the badge code to paste in your README, too.
When in doubt, the easiest thing to do is to find a
launch binder badge that works to open the Voila render and use that as a pattern to hand edit the URL. The
launch binder badge under the Voila logo here presently works and is probably the best basis as I suppose if anything changes it will by updated first and foremost.
