This blog post is mostly for one of my teams in which I use Jupyter Notebooks for documentation. Perhaps after reading this post, you the reader can understand why it might be beneficial to use Jupyter Notebooks as a form of documentation.

Why?

So why Jupyter Notebooks?

Setting up

Jupyter Notebooks are part of the Project Jupyter suite of products. You can install it via a pip package, but it is more commonly installed via the Anaconda Distribution

Once you have that installed, run jupyter lab in the directory that you wish to execute code from. You might need to be in the bash shell for this to work since the installer modifies those environmental variables.
