Hmm, interesting point. I never realise that.
Maybe you are right as I uninstalled python-oct2py and the notebook still works.

However, since I never use it anymore, I'm not sure about everything... Until today have I realised the package (on 0.19.*) seems not to function well...
Anyway, the dependency will be removed.

About package name, I'm not sure which is better.
I myself think naming it as 'jupyter-*' would be better because it is an extension to Jupyter, not to Python (i.e. a library); and there are many packages with naming schema 'jupyter-*' in AUR.

Are there any perticular reasons for a Python2 version (since jupyter itself depends on python3 stuff)? This kernel should have nothing to do with Python itself, except for pip to install (and maybe there is a way not to use pip, which I don't know)...

also I think it should be named python-octave_kernel
could you provide a python2 split package too ?

xantares commented on 2016-12-31 13:48

are you sure it depends python-oct2py ?
imho it's the other way around

Hi @bachp ,

Thanks for mentioning, I wasn't aware metakernel is also a dependency.

As for 'gnuplot', yes it should be added. (I though it was already added but I was wrong)
However, I was always hesitating whether to count it as a (hard) dependency or an optional dependency. Octave and this kernel seem to work well without gnuplot (without the ability to make plots, which is quite useful [and maybe important], I see).

I had to add `jupyter-metakernel` and `gnuplot` to make it work.
