    I think that the second step is not necessary. Check http://jupyter-contrib-nbextensions.readthedocs.io/en/latest/install.html:

    There are conda packages for the notebook extensions and the jupyter_nbextensions_configurator available from conda-forge. You can install both using

    conda install -c conda-forge jupyter_contrib_nbextensions
    This also automatically installs the Javascript and CSS files (using jupyter contrib nbextension install –sys-prefix), so the second installation step below can therefore be skipped.”
