Installation-free CDA-python Sandbox¶
Try cda-python in your web browser, no installation required.
This will launch a Jupyter Notebook with interactive, modifiable, example notebooks ready to run. You can preview static versions of the example notebooks here.

About our MyBinder Notebook¶
What is it?¶
MyBinder.org provides small, free, on-demand computing resources accessible through your web browser. Our binder is pre-configured to provide all the packages you need to run cda-python, as well as an example ipython notebook. Each time you click the button, it will start a fresh machine with no memory of your previous changes.
What can I do in it?¶
If you are familiar with python, you can freely edit the example notebook to run different queries, or even create your own ipython notebook to run. You can also upload code using the import feature in the bottom right pane. Keep in mind that MyBinder instances are relatively small, so they will likely run out of memory if you try to run a very large query. If you are working with cda-python regularly, we recommend installing it locally.
Leaving the notebook¶
The binder instance, any edits you've made to the code, and any results you create, will be lost when you close your browser tab or internet connection. If you are using the instance to run your own queries be sure to save out the results and code to your local computer by using the export feature in the bottom right pane before you leave.
Doing more with cda-python¶
If you are working with cda-python regularly, we recommend installing it locally. You'll be able customize your installation and to run larger and more complex queries than the binder instances can handle.
