Module: nbformat.convert

API for converting notebooks between versions.

Authors:

  • Jonathan Frederic

1 Function

IPython.nbformat.convert.convert(nb, to_version)

Convert a notebook node object to a specific version. Assumes that all the versions starting from 1 to the latest major X are implemented. In other words, there should never be a case where v1 v2 v3 v5 exist without a v4. Also assumes that all conversions can be made in one step increments between major versions and ignores minor revisions.

Parameters:

nb : NotebookNode

to_version : int

Major revision to convert the notebook to. Can either be an upgrade or a downgrade.
