I am starting to depend heavily on the IPython notebook app to develop and document algorithms. It is awesome; but there is something that seems like it should be possible, but I can't figure out how to do it:
I would like to insert a local image into my (local) IPython notebook markdown to aid in documenting an algorithm. I know enough to add something like
Files inside the notebook dir are available under a "files/" url. So if it's in the base path, it would be
<img src="files/image.png">, and subdirs etc. are also available:
<img src="files/subdir/image.png">, etc.
Update: starting with IPython 2.0, the
files/ prefix is no longer needed (cf. release notes). So now the solution
<img src="image.png"> simply works as expected.
