Install Python and Jupyter

Install Anaconda which includes Python 3 and Jupyter notebook.

Otherwise, for advanced users, install Jupyter notebook with pip3 install jupyter.

Create a new blog post as usual

Run the following commands in your Terminal, substituting <MY_WEBSITE_FOLDER> and my-post with the file path to your academia website folder and a name for your blog post (without spaces), respectively:

cd <MY_WEBSITE_FOLDER>
hugo new  --kind post post/my-post
cd <MY_WEBSITE_FOLDER>/content/post/my-post/

Create or upload a Jupyter notebook

Run the following command to start Jupyter within your new blog post folder. Then create a new Jupyter notebook (New > Python Notebook) or upload a notebook.

jupyter notebook

Convert notebook to Markdown

jupyter nbconvert Untitled.ipynb --to markdown --NbConvertApp.output_files_dir=.

# Copy the contents of Untitled.md and append it to index.md:
cat Untitled.md | tee -a index.md

# Remove the temporary file:
rm Untitled.md

Edit your post metadata

Open index.md in your text editor and edit the title etc. in the front matter according to your preference.

To set a featured image, place an image named featured into your post’s folder.
