About

This notebook is a demonstration of some of capabilities of fastpages with notebooks.

With fastpages you can save your jupyter notebooks into the _notebooks folder at the root of your repository, and they will be automatically be converted to Jekyll compliant blog posts!

Front Matter

The first cell in your Jupyter Notebook or markdown blog post contains front matter. Front matter is metadata that can turn on/off options in your Notebook. It is formatted like this:

# "My Title"
> "Awesome summary"

- toc:true- branch: master- badges: true- comments: true
- author: Hamel Husain & Jeremy Howard
- categories: [fastpages, jupyter]
  • Setting toc: true will automatically generate a table of contents
  • Setting badges: true will automatically include GitHub and Google Colab links to your notebook.
  • Setting comments: true will enable commenting on your blog post, powered by utterances.

The title and description need to be enclosed in double quotes only if they include special characters such as a colon. More details and options for front matter can be viewed on the front matter section of the README.

Markdown Shortcuts

A #hide comment at the top of any code cell will hide both the input and output of that cell in your blog post.

A #hide_input comment at the top of any code cell will only hide the input of that cell.

The comment #hide_input was used to hide the code that produced this.

put a #collapse-hide flag at the top of any cell if you want to hide that cell by default, but give the reader the option to show it:

#collapse-hide
import pandas as pd
import altair as alt

put a #collapse-show flag at the top of any cell if you want to show that cell by default, but give the reader the option to hide it:

#collapse-show
cars = 'https://vega.github.io/vega-datasets/data/cars.json'
movies = 'https://vega.github.io/vega-datasets/data/movies.json'
sp500 = 'https://vega.github.io/vega-datasets/data/sp500.csv'
stocks = 'https://vega.github.io/vega-datasets/data/stocks.csv'
flights = 'https://vega.github.io/vega-datasets/data/flights-5k.json'

Interactive Charts With Altair

Charts made with Altair remain interactive. Example charts taken from this repo, specifically this notebook.

Example 1: DropDown

# single-value selection over [Major_Genre, MPAA_Rating] pairs
# use specific hard-wired values as the initial selected values
selection = alt.selection_single(
    name='Select',
    fields=['Major_Genre', 'MPAA_Rating'],
    init={'Major_Genre': 'Drama', 'MPAA_Rating': 'R'},
    bind={'Major_Genre': alt.binding_select(options=genres), 'MPAA_Rating': alt.binding_radio(options=mpaa)}
)
  
# scatter plot, modify opacity based on selection
alt.Chart(df).mark_circle().add_selection(
    selection
).encode(
    x='Rotten_Tomatoes_Rating:Q',
    y='IMDB_Rating:Q',
    tooltip='Title:N',
    opacity=alt.condition(selection, alt.value(0.75), alt.value(0.05))
)
