Cantor Alternatives

    Cantor is described as 'front-end to powerful mathematics and statistics packages. Cantor integrates them into the KDE Platform and provides a nice, worksheet-based, graphical user interface. It supports environments for KAlgebra, Lua, Maxima, R, Sage, Octave, Python, Scilab, and Qalculate!'. There are five alternatives to Cantor for a variety of platforms, including Online / Web-based, Mac, Windows, Linux and Self-Hosted solutions. The best alternative is Jupyter, which is both free and Open Source. Other great apps like Cantor are Observable Notebooks (Free), Beaker (Free, Open Source), Kajero (Free, Open Source) and Starboard (Free, Open Source).

      Starboard brings cell-by-cell notebooks to the browser, no code is running on the backend! It's probably the quickest way to visualize some data with interactivity, do some prototyping, or build a rudimentary dashboard. Features
