Here are some useful utilities which currently exist as gists, but which could benefit from being wrapped up and folded into IPython commandline tools, such as nbconvert.
https://gist.github.com/timo/2621679 - For each ipynb file, a kernel is started, all cells are executed in order and exceptions occuring in the cells will show up as failed tests.
https://gist.github.com/minrk/2620876 - simple example script for running notebooks and reporting exceptions.
https://gist.github.com/minrk/2620735 - simple example script for running and testing notebooks. Each cell is submitted to the kernel, and the outputs are compared with those stored in the notebook.
https://gist.github.com/minrk/3719849 - remove all outputs from a notebook
https://gist.github.com/minrk/3836889 - selectively replacing code cells based on their contents. Example: cells which start off with "# Solution" get replaced with "# Solution goes here"
