Description (last modified by jason)

This patch adds (experimental) support for uploading a static html doc page as a worksheet in the notebook. As a side effect, it:

  • allows for uploading a .txt file from a URL (was broken)
  • allows for uploading a zip file containing .txt and .html files

This little feature would give a very simple workflow for distributing tutorial worksheets during our Sage(-Combinat) workshops, saving a lot of hassle and time to both us and the participants (more detail upon request). It would be great if this feature could be in the sage stable release by early May for the next Sage-Combinat workshop in Acadia.

I wrote the attached small patch as a proof of concept; however this is the first time I am touching the notebook code and I am not planning to invest in this direction in the short term. So I would be extremely glad if some notebook expert could take over this patch, clean it up (look for TODO/FIXME), and rebase it upon #10521 with whom it probably conflicts lightly (this should be a breeze).

  • #7441: notebook: make it possible to upload from the url of a published worksheet
  • #9875: Can't upload from a notebook link, only from a .sws file
  • #10521: notebook upload of zipped worksheets can't deal with multiple worksheets with the same name

Thanks so much in advance!!!

Added #4825 to the list of related tickets. That ticket proposes that uploading pdf files with attached .sws files would extract the .sws file and put it in the users list of worksheets. I could see this also being useful for tutorials, books, articles, etc.
