I’m dreaming of such an app (CMS based on a Jupiter server) for a long time :)
something on the line of Rstudio server [1] will be awesome.
I don’t know if of any help but 
few months ago i was experimenting on how to connect a flask app with an Ipython notebook.
this is a very simple example on how to pass python object between a running notebook and a lack app : 

the flask app is :

https://gist.github.com/anonymous/1ef39d31c16e3153f3e7 <https://gist.github.com/anonymous/1ef39d31c16e3153f3e7>

it runs on host:5000

and from a notebook like :

http://nbviewer.ipython.org/gist/anonymous/cce682857defaf0016ee <http://nbviewer.ipython.org/gist/anonymous/cce682857defaf0016ee>

CMS in python .. the first that comes in mind is based on flask and is called “quokka” [2] demo [3]

But would be hard to have much integration between the notebooks and the CMS components (imagine panels like "tag cloud", "trending libraries", "search/example uses", "share", "co-edit", etc). It would seem that if the CMS were at least written in Python, that would allow more interesting/useful components and integration.

IPython.nbformat is a Python package to read and write them, but it's a fairly thin wrapper around the JSON structures (apart from the bits to convert between different format versions), so you can manipulate them from any language that can work with JSON.
