ipython: Interactive computing environment with an enhanced interactive Python shell#

Description#

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).
