Jupyter notebook looks different on Colab?

This is what I see for my jupyter notebook on Colab, which is different from one that’s shown on fast.ai lesson 1. Is this ok?

Yes, Colab has their own version of jupyter :slight_smile:

Yes. The shortcut keys are very different. Be aware of that something like widgets(e.g. in the note book of downloading lesson 2) are not working.

Thank you so much for all the replies! Any workarounds for the widgets?

I don’t think there is a way to work around it now. I will switch back to Jupyter Notebook in my Win10 box, which can be very slow. I also tried virtual machine with Ubuntu, but GPU is not working well. For this one I don’t think the speed is crucial.

I just encountered this problem too. Have you tried Paperspace Gradient? It appears to be regular Jupyter Notebook, versus Colab, which is a customized flavor of JupyterLab, if I understand correctly.

@muellerzr Will Paperspace Gradient support all of the features required to complete fastai part 1 v3?

I, too, need a cloud GPU to complete these lessons.

They charge storage and I was not able to get the coupon/discount before the deadline Jan 2020. Or else I’ll try gradient. BTW, I would like to learn a bit cloud computing. One of the fun thing in fastai is I found that I need to learn different tools and keep expand my horizon of different disciplines. :slight_smile:
