Top bar is still blank

See original GitHub issue

Hi -

I have pursued the installation instructions:

sudo -H pip install -U nbresuse==0.3.3
sudo jupyter labextension install jupyterlab-topbar-extension jupyterlab-system-monitor

followed by a browser refresh.

This still results in a blank top bar (except for grey bars either side).

Do I need to do a client-side reset application state?

Or do I need to do a server-side

sudo jupyter lab clean && sudo jupyter lab build


It would be great if you could help me get this over the line.

Many thanks in advance for all help!

PS Since I have no idea whether this is related to or not I have opened a new ticket.

PPS I am running jupyterlab inside a docker container launched by jupyterhub on a kubernetes cluster.

PPPS Your excellent topbar extension does work - I can see the logout button, the light/dark theme switcher and the waving hand.

Same issue here. jupyter labextension list doesn’t show any errors, enabled OK.

I’m having this issue as well. Is there supposed to be an entry in the topbar config for this?
