  2. Clone your fork locally.
  3. Install your local copy into a virtualenv, e.g., using conda.

Note on Enabling jupytext

jupytext is responsible to enable MySt formatted markdown within jupyter notebooks. It should be enabled automatically by installing jupytext, which is also included in the requirements.txt. So chances are high that you don't have to do anything special. However if that doesn't work out of the box, please have a look at their install instructions. In particular, the command jupyter serverextension enable jupytext may help.

Building the book

To check your changes locally you can build the book:

  • (Recommended) Remove the existing how_to_eurec4a/_build/ directory
  • Run jupyter-book build how_to_eurec4a/

A fully-rendered HTML version of the book will be built in how_to_eurec4a/_build/html/.
