Ah, I had missed that you core question was how to (wether?) use TDD in Jupyter. 

I am certainly very interested in that question. I don’t think it is clear that TDD is generally a bad fit for Jupyter - I’d rather think nobody has explored this yet (or at least I haven’t heard about it), both from a workflow and a tools perspective. 

What is your anticipated model here? Write the tests in a normal python file, and develop in the notebook? Or have the tests in a different notebook? Or something else?

Best wishes,
