A simple trick that I’ve been sort of aware from years, but never really used: creating your own simple
_repr_ functions to output pretty reports of Python objects (I’m guessing, but haven’t yet checked, that this should work for a Jupyter Book HTML publishing workflow too).
The formulation is:
html_formatter = get_ipython().display_formatter.formatters['text/html'] html_formatter.for_type(CLASS, HTML_REPORT_FUNCTION);
Via a tweet, a simple example of adding repr magic to a class:
class HelloWorld(): def __repr_html__(self): return "<div>Hello world!</div>" #Then: a = HelloWorld() a
