Recent reviews
This addon opens local .ipynb files and renders them completely offline. To do this, it builds on existing open-source components like an iPython notebook parser (notebook.js, https://github.com/jsvine/notebookjs) and math rendering engine (katex.js, https://github.com/KaTeX/KaTeX). There are sometimes rendering differences for unusual notebooks but in general this works very well.
