I don't understand much of what I did to accomplish this, but I did manage to get jupyter notebooks and the ipython environment installed on my Chromebook, which as a beginner, is a really helpful environment for learning python.
jupyter makes it easier to read the notes from the python bootcamp course I'm currently doing from Udemy when I'm not online.
Surprised to see that chyrp is still alive, somewhat at least. I managed to install it again, but then it was saddening to see that it doesn't have any themes available, and that the only way out is writing your own. I did that once and was not impressed with my accomplishments.
