I was able to successefuly install Ipython(jupyter) on my nexus(2013) and wanted to share the procedure with all that could be interested.
You could learn and read about Ipython[Jupyter] here
> To the best of my knowledge this is the first tutorial of it's kind.
> I strongly recomend that you try this on a fresh rom. Use MultiROM for instance
> This was tried on Nexus 7(2013) with android 4.4.4. But I see no reason why it shouldn't work on lolipop 5.0 or on another android tablet. [You could try at your own risk and report your findings]
> Allow minimum 4Gb free space. I used rougthly 2.2 Gb, but i installed more than just ipython
> Hackers Keyboard is VERY HANDY if not NECESSARY
> I apologize for typos and gramar mistakes in advance
> Some of the following steps take time (a long time). Just make sure your tablet is connected to the charge and chose to keep the screan ON while it's on charge
> I am UNLOCKED and ROOTED. I can't tell whether it is required. If it is it would have to be with the prerequired apps. YOU WANNA VERIFY THAT before anything
> MOST IMPORTANTLY, DO THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK. I'm NOT RESPONSIBLE for any INCONVENIANCE whatsoever.
1-: Install GNURoot WheezyX . I am more confortable with debian, tryFedora or Gentoo ... If you know what you are doing.
2- Install GNURoot
3- Open GNURoot
4- Chose wheezyx (or fedora or gentoo ... depending on the distro you like) in the "Select Rootfs to Create " drop-down menu.
5- Click on 'Create New Rootfs' button
6- Chose wheezyx(or fedora or gentoo ... depending on the distro you chose) in the "Select Rootfs to Launch " drop-down menu
7- Check 'Lauch as Facke Root' box. This will give us root privilege
8- Click on 'Lauch Rootfs' button
At this point you shoud have 'Terminal Emulator" open up a window with '[email protected]:/# ' and a prompt ready to take instrucktions
Welcome to linux !!!
Now we need to install "python" and "pip", but before that we need to install 'build-essentials' which will make 'gcc' and all tools required to build a package available on our linux platform:
In the following: if you chose wheezy distro it's the same procedure; if you chose fedora distro replace apt-get with yum; if you chose gentoo you are on your own because I'm not familiar with it
Anyways I assume no responsability anyhow whatsoever.
9 - At the prompt type 'apt-get update' and press Enter
10 - Type 'apt-get upgrade' and press Enter'
11 - Type 'apt-get install build-essential' and press Enter' : This will install "build essential"
12- - Type 'apt-get install python' and press Enter' : This will install "python". I got the version 2.7.3 . You could find the version you installed by typing "python -V" and pressing Enter
13 - Type 'apt-get install python-pip' and press Enter' : This will install "pip", the python package manger
At this point we have python setup in the linux environement. Let's finally install ipython:
14-a Type 'pip install ipython' and press Enter if all you want is the ipython interpreter
15-a Type 'pip install ipython --upgrade' and press Enter to make sure you got the latest version
14-b Type 'pip install ipython[all] ' and press Enter if you want ipython and all the goodies like notebook
15-b Type 'pip install ipython [all]--upgrade' and press Enter to make sure you got the latest version
I do scientific work with ipython, so if you are on the same boat as me you could install scientific packages numpy,sympy,pandas,nose,.... with:
"apt-get install python-numpy python-scipy python-matplotlib ipython ipython-notebook python-pandas python-sympy python-nose" !!! This is a lot about 1.2Gb !!!
At this point everything is set up. "when the wine is drawn, we now just have to drink it"
16-a Type ' ipython ' and press Enter to run ipython interpreter
16-b Type ' ipython notebook' and press Enter to run ipython notwbook. If you get an error message say that ''no web browser could be found" ignore it. look for the server address (looks like http://localhost:8888)
17-b Enter that adress (http://localhost:8888 in my case) in Chrome (I had no problem with chrom so far, but you could try on your favorite web browser) press Enter. Et voila you should be in the ipython notebook tree
I have been here for a couple of years, and never got to share anything.
This is my first thread, and i hope it is the beging of a very long series of contributions
> I will upload screenshots later to better guide noobs (I was one onece)
> PM me if you like to donate. I would appreciate it
> Please support the GNURoot developpers, or ipython[Jupyter] developpers if you can. They are all doing a terrific work. (I'm in no way associated to them, but love and support their work)
> I'm not very good at making videos, but I welcome any initiative.
You now Know how to install ipython, I trus you could be very creative since you now got linux at your finger tip
