I used to use notebook sagenb for teaching purposes.
Each student had a login and password to work on the same server.
I ran into several internal server errors 500 using it. so I though since it seems that jupyter notebook is more recommended I should try and switch to it.
However, I am concerned because I am not sure it allows the same type of multi-users server.
Hint from jupyter notebook login page that points to
https://jupyter-notebook.readthedocs.io/en/stable/public_server.html
tell me that it might not.
So the questions are:
1/ with "sage -n jupyter --ip='*'" is it possible to have 16 or so students connecting to the same server and working on similar worksheets (as it seemed to work rather smoothly for sagenb)?
2/ if not, is there another way to have sage use jupyter notebook for multi users?
3/ if not, is an install of jupyterhub or sagemathcloud reasonnable with no particular sysadmin skill?
4/ if not is there anything else I should try?
5/ if not, do some of you have experience of sagenb under sage 8.3 usability?
Installing sagemath on all computers is not an option for me at the moment.
Best regards,
b
PS : my sagemath on a debian 9 server compiled from source (I used to use debian packages but though it might work more smoothly with install from source)bb16Thu, 11 Oct 2018 16:30:33 +0200https://ask.sagemath.org/question/43919/Installing SageMath for multiple users?https://ask.sagemath.org/question/37505/installing-sagemath-for-multiple-users/ I have been asked to look into installing SageMath on a server for use by multiple users (I am a sysadmin and not a mathematician). I had initially looked into this a couple of years ago, but then priorities were changed.
From the previous occasion, I recall that SageMath installation is generally from a tarball (or a possibly quite fearsome compilation from source), and that the SageMath notebook interface runs in the user's web browser. I seem to recall then that it would be difficult or impossible for more than one end user to run SageMath, as, when it opens a web browser, it is not aware of there actually being different end users on a multi-user server computer and the notebook interface would not be able to cope with this (without somehow running multiple web interfaces on separate network ports?). The SageMath documentation also rather seems to assume the use case of an individual user with sysadmin powers installing SageMath on their own personal computer for their own stand-alone personal use (if there is specific documentation about setup for multiple users, I have not yet found it, unfortunately).
Is it (easily) possible to install SageMath on a (Linux) server for multiple end users to be able to use it via the notebook interface, or would it realistically be substantially easier to consider the use of the SageMath Cloud service instead?
Thank you for any advice.dave559Thu, 04 May 2017 12:42:58 +0200https://ask.sagemath.org/question/37505/
