Notebook structure

A Jupyter Notebook is fundamentally a JSON file with a number of annotations. The main parts of the Notebook are as follows:

  • Metadata: A data dictionary of definitions used to set up and display the notebook
  • Notebook format: Version numbers of the software used to create the notebook (the version number is used for backward compatibility)
  • List of cells: There are different types of cell for markdown (display), code (to execute), and output (of the code type cells)
