- Configuration options
Configurable options for the nbconvert application
- class nbconvert.nbconvertapp.NbConvertApp(**kwargs)¶
Application used to convert from notebook file type (
Construct the list of notebooks.
If notebooks are passed on the command-line, they override (rather than add) notebooks specified in config files. Glob each notebook to replace notebook patterns with filenames.
Convert the notebooks in the self.notebook traitlet
- convert_single_notebook(notebook_filename, input_buffer=None)¶
Convert a single notebook.
Performs the following steps:
Initialize notebook resources
Export the notebook to a particular format
Write the exported notebook to file
(Maybe) postprocess the written file
notebook_filename (str) –
input_buffer – If input_buffer is not None, conversion is done and the buffer is used as source into a file basenamed by the notebook_filename argument.
Step 1: Initialize resources
This initializes the resources dictionary for a single notebook.
- resources dictionary for a single notebook that MUST include the following keys:
config_dir: the location of the Jupyter config directory
unique_key: the notebook name
output_files_dir: a directory where output files (not including the notebook itself) should be saved
- Return type
- export_single_notebook(notebook_filename, resources, input_buffer=None)¶
Step 2: Export the notebook
Exports the notebook to a particular format according to the specified exporter. This function returns the output and (possibly modified) resources from the exporter.
- write_single_notebook(output, resources)¶
Step 3: Write the notebook to file
This writes output from the exporter to file using the specified writer. It returns the results from the writer.
resources (dict) – resources for a single notebook including name, config directory and directory to save output
results from the specified writer output of exporter
- Return type
Step 4: Post-process the written file
Only used if a postprocessor has been specified. After the converted notebook is written to a file in Step 3, this post-processes the notebook.
