This package is based on modules available in the subdirectory tools of the Python Data Science Handbook, by Jake VanderPlas.

In February 2018, I modified and packaged the tools as a single module named jupyterbookmaker. This was used in my classroom notes on Mathematical Modelling, taught on early 2018. The notes are available (in Portuguese) at the github repository for Modelagem Matem√°tica - IM/UFRJ.

At the end of 2019, the package was significantly improved and renamed nbbinder.
