Working in workspace
How to work in workspace

Maximum workspace size

If the total size of all the files in your workspace exceeds 5GB, you will no longer be able to access your workspace. If you unintentionally ended up in this situation and want to continue, let us know and we'll help you out. To contact us, see Support.

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.

Renaming the workspace

  1. 1.
    Click on the downwards pointing arrow next to the workspace name:
  2. 2.
    Select "Rename Workspace".
  3. 3.
    In the modal that appears specify the new workspace name and click "Rename Workspace".

Switching the editor

If you edit or create a new Python workspace, you can edit and execute the workspace files in DataCamp's notebook editor or JupyterLab.
To switch between the editors, select Switch Editor.

Exiting the workspace

To exit the workspace, select the
exit icon. You return to the w=Workspace dashboard.

Deleting your workspace

If you wish to permanently delete your workspace, head over to the Dashboard, click the three dots on the right hand side of the workspace card, and select "Delete Workspace". This action is irreversible!

Including images in your notebook

Include image from a file

  1. 1.
    Open the file browser in the left sidebar.
  2. 2.
    Upload the image you want to include. The filename cannot contain spaces. If it does, change the filename using the rename functionality.
  3. 3.
    In a new or existing Markdown cell, add the following text (in this example, the filename of the image that is being included is my_image.png):
![my image caption](my_image.png)

Include image from a URL

In a new or existing Markdown cell, add the following text (in this example, the image is available on
![a random image](

Changing Appearance

When working inside JupyterLab you can choose between the JupyterLab Light or JupyterLab Dark theme. Light is the default setting. To change it, header over to Settings, then JupyterLab Theme, and then JupyterLab Dark or JupyterLab Light.
Currently, appearance settings are not preserved across workspaces and across sessions; you will have to reset the appearance every time. We are working on improving this.
