This is probably a FAQ but didn’t see it discussed:
Could anyone fill us in on the major differences / pros-and-cons of fastdoc vs. jupyter book? I am someone who is “crazy enough to think writing a book is a good idea.”
I came to the forum after seeing Jeremy’s tweet today, and searched the forum to find a thread on the relative merits of
jupyter book, and/or why
jupyter book wasn’t meeting the needs of Jeremy & Sylvain --presumably because (I’m guessing)…
- so many custom aspects of nbdev
- and/or perhaps that they just wanted/needed to have more control over the project to do what they wanted.
- jupyter book layout may not look like what they wanted
- much of jupyter book involves rendering an online format, which J&S didn’t want or need for Fasbook.
