Installing python packages

In order to install Python packages, create a Terminal in Jupyter (New->Terminal). After that you will be redirected to a web page with a virtual shell inside the container, where you can execute commands.

You have no root access inside the container, therefore you should install Python packages in your $HOME directory (remember that the $HOME inside the container is actually the job submission folder). You can do this with the next command using pip3:

pip3 install --user package_name

After that, the package will be installed in $HOME/.local and will be available after the container is destroyed. In order to have these packages when you run other instances of Jupyter, you should submit the job from the same folder.
