IPython question mark does not display output

See original GitHub issue

I have lines like:

.. jupyter-execute::

.. jupyter-execute::

The output that displays in IPython or Jupyter notebook does not seem to display with jupyter-sphinx. For example:


Is there a way to have the output from the IPython ? and ?? display?

Yes, manually executed then uploaded to github and displayed via nbviewer. So I guess manual execution of the notebook catches the output properly. Thanks.

Can’t confirm using jupyter nbconvert --execute bug.ipynb --to notebook --stdout (bug.ipynb contains a single code cell with ?).

Your notebook already contains outputs; was it not executed manually, e.g. using run all cells or so?
