Over the past three years, the Executable Books team has focused its efforts on building a Sphinx-based technical stack underlying the Jupyter Book project. This has been extremely successful, and Jupyter Book and the associated MyST ecosystem in Sphinx have gained adoption across both scientific and open source communities. The MyST Parser for Sphinx averages around 350,000 downloads a month, which makes up about 13% of all Sphinx downloads (https://www.pepy.tech/projects/myst-parser?versions=*). There are over 4000 Jupyter Book’s in public GitHub repositories (https://github.com/search?q=%22format%3A+jb-book%22&type=code), many of which are now featured at gallery.executablebooks.org.

Join the upcoming webinar (5th July 2023 @ 3pm UTC) and get started using MyST in JupyterLab and how it connects to other scientific writing workflows. The webinar is hosted by Rowan & Steve from Curvenote, and will be an hour walk-through of using MyST in JupyterLab.

Interested in porting your first LaTeX template to a MyST template? Join the upcoming webinar (15th March 2023 @ 4pm UTC) and get started (and maybe finished) building your template during the session.
The webinar is hosted by Rowan & Steve from Curvenote, and will be a 2 hour walk-through at an easy pace of how to markup an existing LaTeX template or document for use with the MyST Markdown CLI.

MyST Markdown is an extensible, semantic, and community-driven flavor of markdown designed for scientific and computational narratives. It was created for Jupyter Book, and has gained wide adoption in Python’s Sphinx documentation ecosystem.

This blog post provides an annual update for the Executable Books community. This post is an adaptation of an interim report provided to the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation. It shares how the project has been progressing relative to the initial grant success metrics, and concludes with a few comments about the future of Executable Books and our vision for the next 12 months.

The AGU 2021 conference just wrapped up, and Jupyter Book made a few appearances at the conference this year. Below are a few links to videos and Google Slides for each session.

In Jupyter Book v0.11, we introduced a new Table of Contents structure. The new structure is a bit more rigid and explicit, which should allow for a cleaner mapping of TOC structures onto book structures. It also introduces the concept of TOC formats, which allows you to specify different kinds of documents in the TOC (to start with, Books and Articles).
This is a short guide to explain the differences between the old and new Table of Contents structures, to help you update them.

This is an experimental post to try solving two problems with one blog post. We often send out a flurry of tweets to talk about a new release in the Executable Books stack. We’d also like to blog about releases more often so it’s easier to track major updates. This post is an attempt at crafting a blog post entirely made out of tweets!
We’re pleased to announce a new version of Jupyter Book has just been released! You can check out the CHANGELOG here: https://jupyterbook.org/reference/_changelog.html#v0-11-0

Jupyter Book is an open source project for building beautiful, publication-quality books, websites, and documents from source material that contains computational content. With this post, we’re happy to announce that Jupyter Book has been re-written from the ground up, making it easier to install, faster to use, and able to create more complex publishing content in your books. It is now supported by the Executable Book Project, an open community that builds open source tools for interactive and executable documents in the Jupyter ecosystem and beyond.

Over the last several years, Jupyter Notebooks have become a staple in the data scientist’s toolkit. As both an interface for interactive computation and a document standard for structuring blocks of computational and narrative content, notebooks are ubiquitous, flexible, and powerful.
