Hi everyone,

I'd like to announce a couple of simple packages related to Jupyter notebooks.

tex2ipy:  https://github.com/prabhuramachandran/tex2ipy

This simple tool makes it relatively easy to convert a LaTeX beamer presentation
to a Jupyter/IPython notebook using RISE[1].

The second tool is:

ipyaml: https://github.com/prabhuramachandran/ipyaml

This allows Jupyter to store notebook files as easy-to-edit YAML files.  It
supports both code/markdown and outputs so is entirely compatible with .ipynb
files (version 4 of the notebook format).  Output dumping can be disabled if
needed.  This package is similar to notedown and ipymd but offers complete
compatibility with .ipynb files.


Both packages can be installed using pip.

   $ pip install tex2ipy  # Works only with Python3.x

   $ pip install ipyaml
