If you installed the kernel, installed its kernelspec and you have MariaDB installed on your system, you just need to open JupyterLab, and when you create a new notebook, pick MariaDB as your kernel.
For some example notebooks, check out the notebooks directory in our GitHub repository page, those should guide through what you can do with mariadb_kernel.
You can also try mariadb_kernel using the amazing MyBinder platform by accessing this link
or you can click on the
Try MariaDB @ binder badge from the mariadb_kernel GitHub repo.
This takes absolutely no effort except one click, Binder does everything for you!
It sets up a MariaDB server and all the installation of the kernel and its requirements. Once this process is done, you will be redirected to a live notebook where you can type your commands.
Please be a bit patient when you first launch Binder, it takes a short while to build the Docker image, it will be much faster the second time you launch it, the Docker image is cached.
