In order to submit a JEP, first read the Jupyter Enhancement Proposal Submission Guidelines which describes the JEP process.
In addition, read the JEP proposal template for guidance on the questions you should answer before officially submitting the JEP.
We use a GitHub action to build the documentation with Sphinx and push it to the
gh-pages branch of the repository.
This is then hosted at
We use a ReadTheDocs build to automatically generate previews of the documentation for Pull Requests. However this is not the publicly-hosted version of the documentation, it is just for PRs.
To build the documentation locally, use the
nox automation and environment management tool.
Follow these steps:
$ pip install nox
Build the docs from the
$ nox -s docs
This will automatically install the environment needed to build the documentation, and then place the output HTML in the
To build the documentation with a live reload server, run:
$ nox -s docs-live
To manually install and build the documentation with Sphinx, install the requirements in
requirements.txt and then run
sphinx-build . _build/html.
