I just painfully became aware of the importance of adding the different profiles (.bashrc, .bash_profile, .ipython, etc.) to version control. To ignore all but a few relevant files in the home directory, I’d use following as .gitignore:
* !*/ !.gitignore !.bash_profile !.jupyter/ !.ipython/
Moreover, I started to experiment a bit with extensions to jupyter through the nbviewber extensions, motivated by this blog post. The extensions and detailed instructions are available on github. Lastly, Benjamin Winkel pointed out that there’s the possibility of customizing jupyter such that it support a multicursor, cmd+d feature, similar to sublime text and atom. The instructions can be found here, but will hopefully become obsolete as this feature is properly added to the master branch of jupyter.
