Re: Calcite example code

Yes the notebook contains the output (it's really just a JSON file). It
doesn't necessarily have to have output, but it's much more useful if it
does since it means whoever is viewing doesn't need to execute it. It would
certainly be possible to use this for tests although it would require an
installation of Python. Given how ubiquitous Python is, I don't think this
is a huge concern, although we'd need a way of installing a couple Python

As Kevin mentioned, you can execute these online with Binder. I just had to
add a Dockerfile so it could run the IJava kernel since it not the default.
Check out the link below and you can see what the experience is like.

Just select a notebook once it loads (it may take a couple minutes). The
experience is basically the same as what you get when running locally. The
notebook consists of a series of "cells" which you can run individually and
edit as you wish. This would also make it easy for people to play around
with Calcite a little without having to install anything.
