Nbdev.jl Alpha release

I am happy to announce that I have released the Alpha version of Nbdev.jl. This project is an attempt to port fastai’s Nbdev to Julia. Nbdev (both the original version and the Julia version) is based on the idea of using Notebooks for literate programming.

While both projects try to achieve the same base goal i.e. generating source code and documentation from Notebooks, the Julia version aims to start from Pluto notebook while the python version starts from a Jupyter notebook. On the documentation side, I am using Mkdocs as the document generator while the original version uses Jekyll as the static site generator of choice.

Getting-started

Follow the tutorial (Tutorial - Nbdev-dev)emphasized text to start experimenting with Nbdev.

The documentation can be found here and the repo for the project is here.

This is an alpha release of Nbdev so expect some breaks in plumbing here and there. Some features are still under development and are not included in this version.

  • Feel free to log any issues, bugs (which I expect to come) here

  • Anything that you feel like is missing and want to discuss the same or have an idea then start a new discussion here
