Project Jupyter is an open source project was born out of the IPython Project in 2014 as it evolved to support interactive data science and scientific computing across all programming languages. Jupyter will always be 100% open source software, free for all to use and released under the liberal terms of the modified BSD license
Project Jupyter, evolved from the IPython environment, provides a platform for interactive computing that is widely used today in research, education, journalism, and industry. The core premise of the Jupyter architecture is to design tools around the experience of interactive computing. It provides an environment, protocol, file format, and libraries optimized for the computational process when there is a human in the loop, in a live iteration with ideas and data assisted by the computer.
The architecture of Jupyter supports a variety of workflows that are central to the processes of research and education. In particular, Jupyter supports reproducible scientific research and the communication of data-intensive narratives both within the scholarly community and with broader audiences. By providing tools that can benefit research scientists as well as media practitioners and journalists, we hope to contribute to a more informed debate in society in domains where data, computation, and science are key.
