🏠 back to Observable

proly too sooon, but would be cool to see observablehq notebooks renderred on github


main gist idea here:



Do you mean rendered in a different way than via embed? @Fil 's website is hosted via GitHub:


yeah, exactly like embed in @Fil 's example, but when you navigate to observablehq js file in repo. similar to how github renders geojson today, etc. Jupyter Py notebooks are rendered as cells on github today. Hopefully, someday if this platform grows we can see observable js notebooks rendered as cells too.


It’s a good idea – and I’ve also been wishing I could view JS visualizations when I embed them within *.md files via GitHub (rather than having to publish them as GH pages). From what I gather, however, this is unlikely to happen:


well, they don’t have to be runnable. that’s what observablehq is for.

If github just showed the cells and outputs I think it would be a huge leap forward for JS notebooks.

See this .ipynb gist for what I mean. Github doesn’t render them raw.

Just an idea I wanted to throw out there for @mike and @tom to explore with github.
