Plugin for mkdocs to generate markdown documents from jupyter notebooks.

Project description


mknotebooks is a plugin for MkDocs, which makes it more convenient to include Jupyter notebooks in your project documentation.


pip install mknotebooks


Simply include any notebooks you want to use in the docs source directory, and add mknotebooks to the plugin section of your mkdocs.yml.

You can optionally execute the notebooks, by setting execute: true in the config, and include a hidden preamble script, to be run before executing any cells using preamble: "<path/to/your/script>". The default cell execution timeout can be overridden by setting timeout: <timeout>, where <timeout> is an integer number of seconds.

Any static images, plots, etc. will be extracted from the notebook and placed alongside the output HTML.


An example docs project demonstrating the above is included. Try it out by running pipenv install && pipenv run mkdocs serve.

Inspecting generated markdown

You can also export the generated markdown by setting write_markdown: true in your mkdocs.yml. This will write the generated markdown to a .md.tmp file alongside the original notebook.
