Broken "terminal tutorial" link in the book's Jupyter Notebook appendix


The link to a terminal tutorial in app_jupyter.ipynb does not work:

Does anyone know where the terminal tutorial is, if it still exists?

I searched around for it (mostly so I could submit a fix to the notebook), but did not find anything.

Here’s the excerpt where the link is:

Don’t know how to use the Terminal?
We made a tutorial for that as well. You can find it here.

And here’s a link to the notebook on GitHub:

thanks, but I still don’t see a link to a terminal tutorial

Found it!

It’s good!

All I needed to find it was a Google search for “terminal tutorial” (duh!)

Now to do a pull request to update the page in fastbook…

Maybe later!

I’m confused. This broken link issue was already corrected with a pull request on March 8, merged into master by Jeremy Howard on March 15, see link below.

But the error remains, and I see no trace of the merge in app_jupyter.ipynb's commit history (see log below).

I guess I could just submit the correction again with a new pull request… But am I looking at the wrong thing? How could the correction disappear without a trace? Maybe Sylvain’s Update on March 17 (see log below) overwrote earlier corrections?..

Here’s the commit log:

    Minor typo fix
