Installation

Installing the Kite Engine

The Kite Engine needs to be installed in order for the extension to work properly. The extension itself provides the frontend that interfaces with the Kite Engine, which performs all the code analysis and machine learning 100% locally on your computer (no code is sent to a cloud server).

macOS Instructions

  1. Download the installer and open the downloaded .dmg file.
  2. Drag the Kite icon into the Applications folder.
  3. Run Kite.app to start the Kite Engine.

Windows Instructions

  1. Download the installer and run the downloaded .exe file.
  2. The installer should run the Kite Engine automatically after installation is complete.

Linux Instructions

  1. Run bash -c "$(wget -q -O - https://linux.kite.com/dls/linux/current)" from the terminal.
  2. The installer should run the Kite Engine automatically after installation is complete.

Installing the Kite Extension for JupyterLab

If you're using JupyterLab 3.0.x, simply run:

pip install "jupyterlab-kite>=2.0.2"

If you're using JupyterLab 2.2.x, run:

pip install "jupyter-kite<2.0.0"
jupyter labextension install "@kiteco/jupyterlab-kite"

⚠️ JupyterLab 2.2.x requires NodeJS to be installed

Usage

The following is a brief guide to using Kite in its default configuration.

Tutorial

When starting JupyterLab with the Kite Assistant for the first time, you'll be guided through a tutorial that shows you how to use Kite.

This tutorial will only be displayed once. You can show it again at any time by running the command Kite: Tutorial from JupyterLab's command palette.

Autocompletions

Simply start typing in a saved Python file or Jupyter notebook and Kite will automatically suggest completions for what you're typing. Kite's autocompletions are all labeled with the 🪁 symbol.
