Mac SageMath 8.1 ... live tutorial?

I launch the Mac SageMath 8.1 binary and I get a browser window labelled "Home" with a URL of localhost:8890/tree?token=nnnn.... ("Jupyter" appears at the top of this page)

When I choose "New->SageMath 8.1->Help->Sage Tutorial" I get "static" tutorial pages with non-executable/non-evaluatable inputs.

About a year ago, I had a pre-Jupyter Sage installation and I worked through portions of a "live," interactive tutorial.

In SageMath 8.1 on a Mac, how do I get to the live, interactive tutorial?

Live documentation in the Jupyter notebook is work in progress, see Sage trac ticket #24593.

In the meanwhile, you can still launch the legacy "SageNB" notebook.

For this, open a terminal and run

sage -n sagenb

If "sage" is not in your PATH, you may instead have to do

/Applications/ -n sagenb.

Or, from a Jupyter notebook worksheet using the SageMath kernel, run

!sage -n sagenb

(in Sage, whether in the Sage REPL or in a SageNB worksheet or in a Jupyter worksheet, starting a command by ! lets you execute a terminal command).
