You can use runipy to script notebook evaluation:


I don't think you can verify that the output isn't changing, but you can at
least check that cells aren't raising exceptions and view a converted
version of the evaluated notebook.  I think adding functionality to verify
that cell output isn't changing would be a neat addition to runipy.
