nbconvert: Convert Notebooks to other formats

Using nbconvert enables:

  • presentation of information in familiar formats, such as PDF.
  • publishing of research using LaTeX and opens the door for embedding notebooks in papers.
  • collaboration with others who may not use the notebook in their work.
  • sharing contents with many people via the web using HTML.

Overall, notebook conversion and the nbconvert tool give scientists and researchers the flexibility to deliver information in a timely way across different formats.

Primarily, the nbconvert tool allows you to convert a Jupyter .ipynb notebook document file into another static format including HTML, LaTeX, PDF, Markdown, reStructuredText, and more. nbconvert can also add productivity to your workflow when used to execute notebooks programmatically.

If used as a Python library (import nbconvert), nbconvert adds notebook conversion within a project. For example, nbconvert is used to implement the “Download as” feature within the Jupyter Notebook web application. When used as a command line tool (invoked as jupyter nbconvert ...), users can conveniently convert just one or a batch of notebook files to another format.
