We started easy-tensorflow.com with my friends to provide easy to learn steps for deep learning in TensorFlow.  Our first problem was Jekyll and Pelican, I noticed that it is time consuming to create a website using those software. So I decided to go with a CMS that I already knew: joomla.

However the problem was that we needed to have the contents from our github. It was a headache and wasted a lot of my precious time that I could have spent on my research or improving my machine learning skills.

Finally I could manage it and I went through the following steps:

1- Use the following command from command prompt ( if you are using Anaconda the normal CMD may not work and you should use the Anaconda Prompt)

For example we want to convert the main.ipynb to main.html

jupyter nbconvert --to html main.ipynb

or without format which is preferred and doesn't need to go through step 2:

jupyter nbconvert --to html --template basic main.ipynb

2- open the html using a text editor ( I use notepad++ because of the many tools) and remove the section containing the CSS data. Its between be below lines. In my file It started from line 7 to line 11743. Yes its a lot!!

<style type="text/css">



If you have Mathjax  stuffs, you also can delete them.


3- Install custom CSS module through joomla administrator site. You can find it here.

4- Download the jupyter.css file.


4- Go to module

  • activate it
  • copy the contents of jupyter.css into the custom css main tab
  • assign a module position. I created a new position in the template for it called none_empty.
  • assign to all menus that you want to use the custom CSS for the Jupyter Notebooks.

5- go to the article and copy and paste the contents from the converted html from step 1 and 2. In the article go to html view using toggle editor and paste the content.

6- add the following line to the top of your article:

{loadposition x}


And you are set.
