rst2ipynb: Convert reStructuredText files to Jupyter notebooks¶
The rst2pynb program converts a standalone reStructuredText file to a Jupyter notebook file.
This is currently achieved by converting to markdown with pandoc and then to Jupyter notebook using notedown, plus some configuration and tweaks.

Special Update/Build Instructions¶
Fetch tarball from https://pypi.python.org/pypi/rst2ipynb/
As it is written in Haskell, pandoc must be installed from the distro.
The main rationale for having a notedown package in Sage (rather than just let pip fetch it) is that the version on pipy (1.5.0, 2015-10-07) is outdated and lacks important features / fixes for us.
Equivalent System Packages¶
However, these system packages will not be used for building Sage because using Python site-packages is not supported by the Sage distribution; see https://trac.sagemath.org/ticket/29023
