      It’s nice to see jupyter catching up with Mathematica.

      Granted, Mathematica by Wolfram is light years ahead in pretty much everything, but it’s also very, very, very expensive.

      This is really nice and I’m glad to see more OSS “book” projects.

      I use jekyll for a bunch of static sites and was trying to find a “book” theme that could actually output an ebook and pdf and was surprised at how much work it took. Then I looked for python, same thing.

      Gitbook is now SaaS so I didn’t want to use their old package as it seems completely abandoned.

      My previous plan was to learn R and use book down, so now I’ll give this a try.

        My current set up is using pandoc to generate pdf/epub from github style markdown and mdBook to generate web version from markdown. Had to write a script to convert single file markdown to multiple files for the web version. mdBook also supports a print option which you could use to get the pdf version (although you’ll need a bit of scripting to make the chapters start on a new page)

        Another option that came up recently is honkit, which is a fork of Gitbook and you could get web version as well as ebook (pdf, epub, mobi).
