Convert markdown to IPython notebook.
[notedown] is a simple tool to create [IPython notebooks][ipython] from markdown.
notedown input.md > output.ipynb
pip install notedown
It is really simple and separates your markdown into code and not code. Code goes into code cells, not-code goes into markdown cells.
Fenced code blocks annotated with a language other than python are read into cells using IPython’s %% [cell magic].
I don’t know. Maybe you prefer writing in markdown.
### What notedown does not do:
- run code cells
- embed figures
### Conversion from notebook to markdown
Converting from an IPython notebook to markdown is done using nbconvert:
ipython nbconvert notebook.ipynb –to markdown
The IPython markdown export is currently quite basic, so you can’t expect to convert markdown -> notebook -> markdown and get back your original markdown.
### Running an IPython Notebook
You can open the notebook in your browser with
ipython notebook your_notebook.ipynb
and use Cell -> Run all in the menu.
You can run notebooks non-interactively from the command line using [runipy]:
pip install runipy runipy your_notebook.ipynb
- [x] support more markdowns
- [ ] allow other cell types?
- [x] allow different language code cells (using %%lang magic)
- [ ] allow code attributes? pass to cell creator?
- [x] code block format agnostic (fenced / indented)
