Ah, I did misunderstand (part of) your question. The notebook you're
linking to is located next to the Sphinx files and at Sphinx built
time, it is not known what URL will be used to view them.

I think something like Matthias' suggestion is the only thing you can
do, apart from adding a configuration value. His Javascript code will
work for relative links (`link.href` will give you the absolute URL).
I think the neatest solution would be to combine our answers and
create a small Sphinx extension that generates the Javascript.
