### Convert sagews into sws

A colleague asks if it is possible to convert from sagews into sws, so that he can use the notebooks that his students create on Sage Cloud.

I have found a sage-cloud thread which mentions this quick script.

My motivations for writing this questions are:

2. There will be better ways in the future
3. There may be better ways now!

So feel free to contribute and keep this question up to date!

PD: For the record, sws files are compressed tar files that you can decompress with tar jxf %F. They contain an html file with code and comments, a pickle file with some python objects, a data folder with the attachments, and a cells folder with the images contained in the output of the cells. On the other hand, sagews files are plain text files with no attachments.
