Server error when trying to open draft notebook


Hi, I am suddenly unable to open a notebook I’ve been working on, becaue the server responds with a 500 server error. This happened immediately after I shared the notebook and reloaded the tab.

Yep, there’s a bug! We’re working on a fix now. Sorry for the inconvenience.


Fixed! Sorry for the trouble.

(For the curious, we deployed a change in how we insert nodes to improve multi-player editing. Rather than inserting an empty node immediately upon creation, we defer inserting the node until there’s content in it. But there was a little bug in the insertion position which we’ve now fixed.)


Thanks for the quick fix!
