Managing a workspace

How to work in workspace

Maximum workspace size

Workspaces have a maximum size limit: the total size of all the files in a workspace cannot exceed 5GB for users on the Workspace Starter plan or 20GB for users on the Workspace Premium plan. This is a per-workspace limit, so free users could have 3 workspaces with 4 GB each, for example.
If the total size of all the files in a single workspaces exceeds the limit, you can no longer edit that workspace: through the file browser, you can remove files from the workspace filesystem to go below the limit again.

Saving your edits

All your edits are automatically saved. If you close and re-enter the workspace at a later point in time, all your work from before is saved. You can review and restore past versions of your notebooks through Version History.

Renaming a workspace

  1. 1.
    Click on 'File > Rename workspace' in the toolbar.
  2. 2.
    In the modal that appears specify the new workspace name and click "Rename Workspace".

Changing the workspace language

You can use either Python or R to execute code in your notebooks. The default language of your workspace is guessed based on your previous workspace. If it can't be guessed, you will be asked to specify a language.
To change the programming language yourself, click "View > Environment" and select the programming language in the dropdown. Note that this will not automatically edit/translate any code that may already exist in notebooks (e.g. we don't convert pd.read_csv() calls to readr::read_csv() when switching the language from Python to R).
Change language through Environment panel

Exiting the workspace editor

To exit the workspace editor, click the Workspace logo in the top left. This sends you back to the Workspace dashboard.

Deleting your workspace

If you wish to permanently delete your workspace:
  • From the workspace dashboard: click the three dots on the right hand side of the workspace card, and select "Delete Workspace". Confirm the action.
  • From the workspace editor, click "File > Delete Workspace". Confirm the action.
Deleting a workspace is irreversible!
