Cell Execution Timeout§

By default, code cells will be executed until they are finished, even if that takes a very long time. In some cases they might never finish.

If you would like to only use a finite amount of time per cell, you can choose a timeout length for all notebooks by setting the following option in

nbsphinx_timeout = 60

Or change the timeout length on a per-notebook basis by adding this to the notebook’s JSON metadata:

"nbsphinx": {
  "timeout": 60

The timeout is given in seconds, use -1 to disable the timeout (which is the default).

Alternatively, you can manually execute the notebook in question and save the results, see the pre-executed example notebook.
