I am on lesson 3, and so far I can follow the concepts and the code, but am struggling with setting up the environment. I like Kaggle the best, but when I try to run the code in Lesson 2, I can’t seem to import fastbook. This bit of code tells me there’s no such module:
! [ -e /content ] && pip install -Uqq fastbook
I can get it to work in colab, but in colab, I can’t download any images. The search_ddg function returns a list of urls, but all the links are broken. It doesn’t seem to matter what search term I use, I can’t download any images.
So I am trying to run code on my local machine, but connect to kaggle for the gpu. I went through this tutorial to try to use kaggle with vscode in a remote container, but this seems to assume a much greater familiarity with vscode than I have.
I would like to find one environment that “just works”. Has anyone found a resource that was helpful for setting up the environment? For now I am resigned to just watching the videos without running code.
Update: As soon as I finished writing this, I went back to lesson 3 and he mentioned Paperspace. I will check that out. If anyone has other suggestions, I am still open to them.
