   Thanks for the suggestion. When I try that in a markdown cell and write
the output to the console log, it simply returns "/"

   So, if I were to merely use $('body').data('baseProjectUrl')+'static' is
that guaranteed to provide the same url prefix as static_url in the

   This also brings up the sticky business of having a script include
dependent on the output of another script - if I'm not already using
requireJS, I would have to implement a dumbed down imitation of it. It
would be better if I could simply get the static_url prefix from within the
python backend.
