If the data made sense, this would qualify as a killer infographic.

change event on input cells

admin πŸ§‘β€πŸ­
Hi folks,

Apologies if this has been covered before. I certainly did a search for the answer first and read the ipython-related posts.

When I interact with an input cell, for example, select a particular item from a drop down, the cells that depend on that variable have to be re-run. This is shown below.

Is there a way to "connect" an input cell to a code cell? This way, the code cell is listening for changes in the input cell, obviating the need to manually re-run a "connected" code block.

I may be missing something obvious here, so please feel free to let me know if I am misunderstanding how input cells work and how they should be used.

I am giving an interactive statistics workshop to novice coders and I would like them to be able to adjust parameters via the UI and see resulting output in a single step, if possible.

Hello Deepnote community!

My expertise is in the area of statistics and data science more generally. I work as a research analyst at a school board. I've published peer-reviewed statistics libraries (Hypothesize, STATSLAB), given lectures on the Python language, interactive data visualisation, and statistics.

Deepnote seems fantastic so far and I'm excited to see it develop further. Thank you to the Deepnote developers for all your hard work.

Sincerely,
Allan

Select multiple cells

admin πŸ§‘β€πŸ­
Hello,

This has been mentioned in Slack. I'm reiterating it here in case it is helpful.

The ability to highlight and operate on multiple cells would be fantastic.

For example, in a long notebook, moving and/or hiding one cell at a time in a long notebook is very time consuming.Β 

Apologies if this is already possible and I have missed something.

TOC in running notebook

admin πŸ§‘β€πŸ­
Hello,

In Google Colab, there is a TOC that is generated in the side bar which allows users to navigate to different sections of the running notebook. This makes long notebooks much easier to develop, especially for collaboration when the layout of sections is being updated by multiple users.

Take care and thanks you for this wonderful product.
