Examples Assistant

Harald Schilly • • cocalc

CoCalc wants you to fully accomplish your computational work online. To archive this goal, CoCals has to provide a reliable service, offer and maintain the software you need, and package this in a powerful interface.

The new “Assistant” is one of the latest additions to the interface. Its goal is to help you by offering a curated set of annotated code snippets.

Open it from within a Sage Worksheet or Jupyter Notebook.

Sage Worksheets

Jupyter Notebooks

You can browse through the categories, explore the collected functionalities, or search for certain keywords.

One click, and it inserts the selected code snippet with an accompanying description right where you are in your document. Then, you can inspect, modify and learn from the example right in front of you.

All the code examples are available at and we’re happy to receive contributions.
