I am running Sage 6.3. I have used Sage for a while, and I open a session on my Linux box using
home@home:~$ sage notebook
which open at
http://localhost:8080/home/admin/16/This means the notebooks I then write are saved in directory
~/.sage/sage_notebook.sagenb/home/ and I understand the command
sage: notebook("path/to/directory") allows one to specify an alternative to the default directory, for example if you want to work out of Dropbox. I require a couple of clarifications:
- I cannot find
.swsfiles in the default directory. I assume this is what I am looking for
- How does the online notebook link with my local setup. How do I get a username and password for this? Is there some way my local work can automatically sync with the online notebook, so it is like a cloud? Is this the purpose of the online notebook--please give a detailed explanation of the online notebook, and why does it have two different web URLs?
