[IPython-dev] Right to left markdown in IPython (1.0)

Hello all,

I'm planning a python class, and my hope is to present it as "live
reavel"[1]  interactive presentation

On of my problems is that I want some of the text and explanations to be in
Hebrew, e.g., be written from right to left, which markdown dose not
support.

One option is to write html with dir=rtl inside the markdown block, but
then I have to write all-html, which is incontinent.

another option is to use this cool bidiweb[2]  script.
bidiweb can operate in two modes:
1. Process html (as returned from the markdown processor) and add dir=rtl
when needed.
2. Post process the page  (searching for specific class and add
right-to-left tags when needed)

In IPython 0.13, option seems cool, as pagedown, the markdown
implementation used, supported post processing hook.

In IPython 1.0, I did the following:
custom.js:

"using strict";

requirejs.config({
    shim: {
        'bidiweb.style': ['bidiweb']
    }
});

$([IPython.events]).on('app_initialized.NotebookApp', function(){
     require(['custom/bidiweb'],function(style){
        bidiweb.style('.rendered_html *');
     })

});


+custom.css with .rtl and .ltr definitions.

This work only partially: It's add RTL support to the markdown blocked that
exists when the page is loaded, but when I add new markdown or edit
existing one, the RTL is killed.
Is there any way to call bidiweb.style whenever a markdown blocked is
update? or any good way to use mode 1 without changing IPython's code?


Thanks,
Ronen Abravanel

and published by the end of October. otherwise, I'll just present a
notebook.
