Package details

Summary: An interactive computing environment for Python

IPython provides a rich toolkit to help you make the most out of using
Python interactively. Its main components are:

* A powerful interactive Python shell
* A Jupyter kernel to work with Python code in Jupyter notebooks and
other interactive frontends.

The enhanced interactive Python shell has the following main features:

* Comprehensive object introspection.
* Input history, persistent across sessions.
* Caching of output results during a session with automatically generated references.
* Extensible tab completion, with support by default for completion of python variables
and keywords, filenames and function keywords.
* Extensible system of ‘magic’ commands for controlling the environment and performing
many tasks related either to IPython or the operating system.
* A rich configuration system with easy switching between different setups
(simpler than changing $PYTHONSTARTUP environment variables every time).
* Session logging and reloading.
* Extensible syntax processing for special purpose situations.
* Access to the system shell with user-extensible alias system.
* Easily embeddable in other Python programs and GUIs.
* Integrated access to the pdb debugger and the Python profiler.
