I would like to be able to view formatted Jupyter Notebooks in my repositories. Notebooks are commonly and increasingly being used in the areas of Data Science and Statistical Computation and contain live code, equations, visualizations and explanatory text.

    +1. Jupyter notebooks are super useful for sharing data analysis code and demonstrating basic functionality of different packages.

    I'd like VSTS to be relevant to data science development workflow. Support for viewing Jupyter notebooks is pivotal to establishing this relevance.

    Echoing sentiments below, if a company has to choose GitHub/BitBucket/VSTS, having the ability to render jupyter notebooks is going to be one deciding factor. As MSFT moves to incorporate AI tools in VS, sharing example notebooks will be crucial for data scientists.

    Moreover, the format is really trivial. It isn't much more than markdown.

    Jupiter is used by our Data Science community to document the exploratory phase of analytics projects. I see this document being as critical in a repo as the README.md file and should be able to be viewed without having to download the file or have Jupiter installed local.

    Agree, Data Science is a growing field and our teams use them regularly. Viewing these native would be a huge boost to how we document our projects.

    This feature is so necessary to share and discuss notebooks content with non-python users inside teams. Please consider add support.

    Hi.

    Our company is starting to work with jupyter notebooks and will use GitHub just because VSTS don't have this feature.
