A Jupyter notebook can be scheduled to run automatically using the following steps:

  1. Convert the Jupyter notebook into a Python script using nbconvert. This can be done by opening a command prompt and using the following command:

    jupyter nbconvert --to python <notebook_name.ipynb>

  2. Save the Python script in a directory where it can be accessed by the scheduler.

  3. Use a scheduler like cron (on Linux) or Task Scheduler (on Windows) to run the Python script at the desired time and interval.

    For example, to schedule a notebook to run every day at 6am on Linux, open a terminal and type the following command:

    crontab -e

    Add the following line to the crontab file, replacing [path_to_python_script] with the actual path to the Python script:

    0 6 * * * /usr/bin/python3 [path_to_python_script]

  4. Save and exit the crontab file. The notebook should now run automatically at the scheduled time.
