Lately I’ve spent a lot of time trying to reduce the friction involved in deploying Jupyter Book as well as contributing to the project. Features are a great carrot, but ultimately getting engagement is also about lowering barriers to entry and showing people a path forward. Jupyter Book is a relatively straightforward project, but it involves a few technical pieces that can be painful to use (thanks Jekyll).
Recently I experimented with whether we can automate deploying a Jupyter Book online. Using continuous integration / deployment services seems like a natural place to try this out. One can upload a barebones set of code to a GitHub repository, then configure a build system to create a book and deploy it online from there. This blog post is a place to keep track of the current state of affairs for this workflow.
