Frontend extension

Recent versions of Jupytext (>=1.16.0) ships frontend extension that enables users to create text notebooks and pair notebooks from main menu of JupyterLab 4 and Notebook 7. In addition, the frontend extension adds selected Jupytext text notebook formats to launcher in the Jupytext section so that users can launch text notebooks as they launch a regular notebook from JupyterLab launcher.

Launcher icons

After installing Jupytext extension, users will have a new category in the launcher called Jupytext as shown below:

Users can remove and/or add new formats to the Jupytext section via Settings>Jupytext.

By (un)selecting different formats, users can filter the items in launcher and main menu. Note that users need to refresh the current browser tab when they modify the settings for them to take effect.
