Configure a JupyterLite site#

Once you have initialized a JupyterLite site, configuration changes can be made by either adding or editing configutation files in the Lite Dir.

Configuration values are set in one or more of the Runtime Configuration Files in well known locations in the Lite Dir. Configuration information is merged in a cascade, allowing settings to be set in the root of the Lite Dir, and superceeded by settings for an individual app such as retro and lab.

Available options are defined in the Jupyter Config Data Schema and include settings such as appName, appVersion, settingsOverrides, exposeAppInBrowser.


In addition to the Runtime Configuration Files additional overrides.json files can be created as described in Customizing Settings. These override specific @jupyterlab settings, are merged into the settingsOverrides of the jupyter config.
