Difference between Jupyter and IPython notebooks?

asked 2017-05-06 08:01:11 -0500

Is there a difference between the IPython notebook and the Jupyter notebook on fedora? I'm a bit confused by the available packages. Installing python3-jupyter-core seems to provide the jupyter-notebook binary, but it does not work without python3-nbformat. There is also another core package: python-jupyter_core which seems to be the same as the first one?

The thing that got me most confused was that there is a notebook package for IPython too (python3-ipython-notebook), and it works independently of the Jupyter one. I can launch a notebook with ipython3 notebook without having python3-nbformat installed. However, the notebooks looks identical!

Is there some preferred way to install Jupyter on fedora 25? I have previously installed it via Anaconda (not the same as fedoras installer) but it feels a bit messy to have several different python installations...

Python-??? packages run on python 2.7.13 and Python3-?? packages run on pyhton 3.5.3 the only difference should the version of python used to run this packages and the implications they add say better performance for start on Pyhton 3.5.x. The idea of having two version of pyhton is to help in the transition to move everything to Pyhton 3.x.x

I think this is because the ipython notebook is changing to jupyter. Maybe the older packages of ipython are still compatible with jupyter. Maybe in the future this change.
