This doesn't quite provide what you are wanting, but it moves in that
direction.  Look forward to see how you end up using it.

I have no idea on how to handle the Django side of things.  But to
enable your notebook manager and configure it, you should add lines
like this to your ipython_notebook_config.py file:

    # This picks which nb manager is used:
    c.NotebookApp.notebook_manager_class =

    # This configures that nb manager:
    c.AzureNotebookManager.account_name = u'mynotebooks'
    c.AzureNotebookManager.account_key = u'paste_your_key_here'
    c.AzureNotebookManager.container = u'notebooks'
