Stars - the number of stars that a project has on GitHub. Growth - month over month growth in stars.
Activity is a relative number indicating how actively a project is being developed. Recent commits have higher weight than older ones.
For example, an activity of 9.0 indicates that a project is amongst the top 10% of the most actively developed projects that we are tracking.
Turns Jupyter notebooks into standalone web applications and dashboards
7 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 31 Aug 2021
You could consider an in browser notebook to get your cost down to near nothing - it depends a bit on what kind of tasks your students do whether they fit in the browser (one wouldn't train a large neural network in one for instance)
There's Starboard (which I'm building, it's built specifically for the browser and can integrate into a larger app deeply) and JupyterLite (the closest you will get to JupyterLab in the browser), either can be a good choice depending on your requirements. Both use Pyodide for the Python runtime.
Enabling COOP/COEP without touching the server

A few examples of web-applications that have this problem are in-browser video converters using ffmpeg.wasm, a web-based notebook that supports Python and multithreaded Emscripten applications.
I want to learn D3. I don’t want to learn Observable. Is that ok? (2019-2021)
6 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 13 Jun 2021
Outside of that use-case, I think notebooks are great for the first 20% of the effort that gets 80% of the work done. If it turns out one also needs to do the other 80% of the effort to get the last 20%, it is time to "graduate" away from a notebook. For instance if I am participating in a Kaggle machine learning competition I may train my first models in a Jupyter notebook for quick iteration on ideas, but when I settle onto a more rigid pipeline and infra, I will move to plain Python files that I can test and collaborate on.
This "graduation" from notebook to the "production/serious" environment should be straightforward, which means there shouldn't be too much magic in the notebook without me opting into it. Documentation in my eyes is not so different, I should be able to copy the examples easily into my JS project without knowing specifics of Observable and adapt it to my problem. Saying "don't be lazy and just learn Observable", or "you must learn D3 itself properly to be able to use it anyway" is not helpful. Observable being a closed, walled garden doesn't help: not being able to author notebooks without using their closed source editor is a liability that I can totally understand makes it a non-starter for some companies and individuals.
I think it's ok to plug my own project: It's called Starboard  and is truly open source . It's built on different principles: it's hackable, extendable, embeddable, shareable, and easy to check into git (i.e. I try to take what makes the web so great and put that in a notebook environment). You write vanilla JS/ES/Python/HTML/CSS, but you can also import your own more advanced cell types. Here's an example which actually introduces an Observable cell type  which is built upon the Observable runtime (which is open source) and an unofficial compiler package . I would be happy for the D3 examples to be expressed in these really-close-to-vanilla JS notebooks, but I can convince the maintainers to do so.

Pyodide: Python for the Browser
5 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 12 May 2021
If you want to play with Pyodide in a web notebook you can try Starboard .
A sibling comment introduces JupyterLite and Brython, which are Jupyer-but-in-the-browser, whereas with Starboard I'm trying to create what Jupyter would have been if it were designed for the browser first.
As it's all static and in-browser, you can embed a notebook (or multiple) in a blog post for instance to power interactive examples. The bundle size is a lot smaller than JupyerLite for the initial load - it's more geared towards fitting into existing websites than being a complete IDE like JupyerLab.

for years now my "personal home page" has been a TiddlyWiki collection of notes and bookmarks. Simple, lightweight and very useful.

I've been having some success using TiddlyWiki to create a person offline wiki. I'm mainly using it for lecture notes from dog training conferences, but I think you should investigate it for this as well. It's small, fast, taggable, searchable, copyable to other devices (just an html file!), and you can keep individual training plans viewable in the feed to focus on while all the others are "closed" but still available as soon as you search them and click them if you want them back. Also heaps of plugins available - I found one that lets you create a visual map of all your notes and you can arrange them however you like with links between them in case you wanted to look at groupings spatially.

TiddlyWiki is something I've used for awhile that I quite like, runs in a browser and is fairly smooth, though can take a little bit of work to get running (though there might be services that run it for you and handle all the cloud-based stuff).
