Dear all,

I would like GRASS GIS to have a page similar to these:

"You can try Jupyter out right now, without installing anything."

Learn by doing: Try Git commands right from your web browser. (

Play with Docker classroom

It seems that Binder might be the way for all command line and Python
related things (and more). I started with couple of notebooks (click the
"launch binder" button at the beginning of each readme file):


First is a basic Python with starting a GRASS GIS session with outputs
saved already (computed notebook). Second is a running GRASS GIS session
and Bash without outputs (you need to run it to see any images). Third is
like the first, but instead of a basic usage, it is a more elaborate
workflow adding Matplotlib (it is unfinished, it should be more than one

About Binder (mybinder.org): Basically it makes Jupyter Notebooks from Git
come alive through Docker. This can be also reproduced on any other server.
Binder is a service by Project Jupyter. Binder can do more than just Python
(or Bash) notebooks most notably JupyterLab, RStudio, and C/C++.

There is much more to be discussed. Let me know what you think about this
and about what should be done before promoting this on the website.
