Remove unique cell id from Jupyter Notebooks


May 17, 2022

I know! Jupyter is littering your git diff with randomly generated cell ids and nbstripout doesn’t remove them, (I’m sure they are useful for some reason).

Open the Notebook with your editor of choice, vim, then look for minor and set nbformat_minor to 4:

"nbformat_minor": 4

Open and save again from Jupyter, cell ids should be gone for good!
