This documentation is for a development version of IPython. There may be significant differences from the latest stable release.

Module: nbformat.v2.nbbase

The basic dict based notebook format.

The Python representation of a notebook is a nested structure of dictionary subclasses that support attribute access (IPython.utils.ipstruct.Struct). The functions in this module are merely helpers to build the structs in the right form.
