# Jupyter Notebooks
This notebook is a demonstration of directly-parsing Jupyter Notebooks into
Sphinx using the MyST parser.[^download]
[^download]: This notebook can be downloaded as **{nb-download}`jupyter-notebooks.ipynb`** and {download}`jupyter-notebooks.md`
## Markdown
:::{seealso}
For more information about what you can write with MyST Markdown, see the
[MyST Parser documentation](myst:intro/get-started).
:::
### Configuration
The MyST-NB parser derives from [the base MyST-Parser](myst:intro/get-started), and so all the same configuration options are available.
See the [MyST configuration options](myst:sphinx/config-options) for the full set of options, and [MyST syntax guide](myst:syntax/core) for all the syntax options.
To build documentation from this notebook, the following options are set:
```python
myst_enable_extensions = [
"amsmath",
"colon_fence",
"deflist",
"dollarmath",
"html_image",
]
myst_url_schemes = ("http", "https", "mailto")
```
:::{note}
Loading the `myst_nb` extension also activates the [`myst_parser`](myst:index) extension, for enabling the MyST flavour of Markdown.
It is not required to add this explicitly in the list of `extensions`.
:::
### Syntax
As you can see, markdown is parsed as expected. Embedding images should work as expected.
For example, here's the MyST-NB logo:
```md
![myst-nb logo](../_static/logo-wide.svg)
```
![myst-nb logo](../_static/logo-wide.svg)
By adding `"html_image"` to the `myst_enable_extensions` list in the sphinx configuration ([see here](myst:syntax/images)), you can even add HTML `img` tags with attributes:
```html
```
Because MyST-NB is using the MyST-markdown parser, you can include rich markdown with Sphinx in your notebook.
For example, here's a note admonition block:
:::::{note}
**Wow**, a note!
It was generated with this code ([as explained here](myst:syntax/admonitions)):
````md
:::{note}
**Wow**, a note!
:::
````
:::::
If you wish to use "bare" LaTeX equations, then you should add `"amsmath"` to the `myst_enable_extensions` list in the sphinx configuration.
This is [explained here](myst:syntax/amsmath), and works as such:
```latex
\begin{equation}
\frac {\partial u}{\partial x} + \frac{\partial v}{\partial y} = - \, \frac{\partial w}{\partial z}
\end{equation}
\begin{align*}
2x - 5y &= 8 \\
3x + 9y &= -12
\end{align*}
```
\begin{equation}
\frac {\partial u}{\partial x} + \frac{\partial v}{\partial y} = - \, \frac{\partial w}{\partial z}
\end{equation}
\begin{align*}
2x - 5y &= 8 \\
3x + 9y &= -12
\end{align*}
Also you can use features like **equation numbering** and referencing in the notebooks:
```md
$$e^{i\pi} + 1 = 0$$ (euler)
```
$$e^{i\pi} + 1 = 0$$ (euler)
Euler's identity, equation {math:numref}`euler`, was elected one of the
most beautiful mathematical formulas.
You can see the syntax used for this example [here in the MyST documentation](myst:syntax/math).
## Code cells and outputs
You can run cells, and the cell outputs will be captured and inserted into
the resulting Sphinx site.
### `__repr__` and HTML outputs
For example, here's some simple Python:
```{code-cell} ipython3
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
import numpy as np
data = np.random.rand(3, 100) * 100
data[:, :10]
```
This will also work with HTML outputs
```{code-cell} ipython3
import pandas as pd
df = pd.DataFrame(data.T, columns=['a', 'b', 'c'])
df.head()
```
as well as math outputs
```{code-cell} ipython3
from IPython.display import Math
Math(r"\sum_{i=0}^n i^2 = \frac{(n^2+n)(2n+1)}{6}")
```
This works for error messages as well:
```{code-cell} ipython3
:tags: [raises-exception]
print("This will be properly printed...")
print(thiswont)
```
### Images
Images that are generated from your code (e.g., with Matplotlib) will also
be embedded.
```{code-cell} ipython3
fig, ax = plt.subplots()
ax.scatter(*data, c=data[2])
```
## Raw cells
The [raw cell type](https://nbformat.readthedocs.io/en/latest/format_description.html#raw-nbconvert-cells) can be used to specifically render the content as a specific [MIME media type](https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/HTTP/Basics_of_HTTP/MIME_types).
````markdown
```{raw-cell}
:format: text/html
My cat is **very** grumpy.

```
````
```{raw-cell}
:format: text/html
My cat is **very** grumpy.

```
