nbmerge: merge / concatenate Jupyter notebooks


pip install nbmerge


For the usage as originally specified by @fperez's gist,

nbmerge file_1.ipynb file_2.ipynb file_3.ipynb > merged.ipynb

Alternatively, nbmerge can cursively collect all files in the current directory and below, recursively. After collection, it sorts them lexicographically. You can use a regular expression as a file name predicate. All .ipynb_checkpoints are automatically ignored. And, you can use the -i option to ignore any notebook prefixed with an underscore (think pseudo-private in python).

For example, the following command collects all notebooks in your project that have the word intro in the file name and saves it to a merged file named _merged.ipynb,

nbmerge --recursive -i -p ".*intro.*" -o _merged.ipynb

Finally, you can also instruct the script to demarcate the boundary between each original file with the -b / -boundary [BOUNDARY] flag. The src_nb value in the metadata for the first cell in each original notebook will then contain the path of the original notebook, relative to the cwd at the point of script execution.
