CLI util to deal with Jupyter Notebooks

Project description



A commandline util for jupyter notebooks, possibly to be used in trainings and/or githooks.

Asekuro means insurance in esperanto.

The main goal is to have a commandline app that can be used in githooks. The main features we wanted in this app is that we had a nice way to:

  1. Clear notebook cells
  2. Be able to confirm that the notebook can run without errors.
  3. Be able to deal with solutions via %load magic.


Installation can be done via pip.

> pip install asekuro

Note that we only support python>=3.6.


Once installed, the commandline app can be used.

> asekuro
Usage: asekuro [OPTIONS] COMMAND [ARGS]...

  Asekuro - it means insurance in esperanto.

  This command line app allows you to check for errors in jupyter notebooks
  and it also allows you to supply a python file with assert statements.

  --help  Show this message and exit.

  check    Check (notebook) files in sequention for errors.
  clean    Clean notebook files.
  test     Check notebook files independantly.
  version  Echo the version of asekuro.

Testing a Notebook

We merely test if the notebook can be run from top to bottom without any errors. This may be dependant on the virtualenv that you're currently running.

Clean Notebook

Sometimes you may want to remove the output of the cells. This can be done automatically now too.

> asekuro clean tests/testnb.ipynb 
2018-07-30 15:44:23,508 [] DEBUG - about to strip tests/testnb.ipynb of output
2018-07-30 15:44:23,516 [] DEBUG - tests/testnb.ipynb is now stripped


You can run some unit tests via pytest. Note that we test using local notebooks as well as a docker container. We want the container that is there to break the build.
