How to convert Jupyter notebooks to python script
Jupyter notebooks are great for experimentation, reporting and sharing. In a project there are often times when you need to transition from this activity to production ready code. The easiest first step is to convert your notebook to a script. In order to do this you will need
nbconvert packages installed.
From a terminal or command prompt type,
pip install jupyter pip install nbconvert
Convert a single notebook
To convert a single notebook, just type the following commands in a terminal where the current directory is the location of the file. Jupyter will convert the notebook to a script file with the same name but with file ending
jupyter nbconvert --to script notebook.ipynb
Convert multiple notebooks
To convert multiple notebooks simultaneously only requires the typing of additional filenames.
jupyter nbconvert --to script notebook1.ipynb notebook2.ipynb
You can even use wildcard searches to make things easier. For instance,
jupyter nbconvert --to script notebook*.ipynb
