If needed, I'm working on a server that generate thumbnails of notebooks for nbviewer.
The prototype is working right now, I just need to make the logic to spawn the rendering to multiple workers,
and cache result to avoid useless rendering.

Right now here is what I do with it :
(with a slight hint of what the next version of nbviewer would look like)
here tiles size where big and random to see how the server would handle it,
but you can get whatever size you want

Tell me if you are interested.
