Use images that have the nomad python packages installed
The fundamental idea behind the analytics toolkit is that we want to allow scientist to analyse NOMAD data without barriers. Locally, the notebooks should support NOMAD client libraries that allow to easily access NOMAD data.
How can this be achieved? Currently there are no pypi packages for NOMAD, but we are looking into this. Otherwise, NOMAD source-code can be simply checked out and pip installed directly. There is also the NOMAD docker image, which is a plain Python3.6 image with all required packages installed.
Currently, NOMAD sources are still very monolithic. We are planning to break this up into a reasonably hierarchy of standalone setuptools/pypi packages. This should allow to only have an isolated metainfo/API package.
