Interactive computing environment with an enhanced interactive Python shell
From the IPython website:
IPython is a multiplatform, Free Software project (BSD licensed) that offers:
An enhanced Python shell designed for efficient interactive work. It includes many enhancements over the default Python shell, including the ability for controlling interactively all major GUI toolkits in a non-blocking manner.
A library to build customized interactive environments using Python as the basic language (but with the possibility of having extended or alternate syntaxes).
A system for interactive distributed and parallel computing (this is part of IPython’s new development).
tornado: Python web framework and asynchronous networking library
pickleshare: A ‘shelve’ like datastore with concurrency support
simplegeneric: Simple single-dispatch generic functions for Python
wcwidth: Measures the displayed width of unicode strings in a terminal
pexpect: Python module for controlling and automating other programs
stack_data: Extract data from python stack frames and tracebacks for informative displays
Equivalent System Packages#
$ conda install ipython
$ brew install ipython
macports: install the following packages: py-ipython
$ sudo zypper install python3-ipython
$ sudo xbps-install python3-ipython
However, these system packages will not be used for building Sage because using Python site-packages is not supported by the Sage distribution; see trac ticket #29023
