Jupyter Notebook Tricks

Some cool Jupyter notebook tricks from Alex Rogozhnikov. Here are some that I did not know:
  • %run can execute python code from .py files and also execute other jupyter notebooks, which can quite useful. (this is different from %load which imports external python code
  • The %store command lets you pass variables between two different notebooks.
  • %%writefile magic saves the contents of that cell to an external file.
  • %pycat does the opposite, and shows you (in a popup) the syntax highlighted contents of an external file.
  • #19  on using different kernels in the same notebook, and #22 on writing fortran code inside the notebook
