Mastering IPython 4.0

This is the code repository for Mastering IPython 4.0, published by Packt. It contains all the supporting project files necessary to work through the book from start to finish.


Chapter-wise software requirements (with version):

  • Chapter 2: Python 3.4.2, IPython 4.0.1
  • Chapter 3: Python libraries (ipyparallel, numpy, scipy)
  • Chapter 4: ZeroMQ 4.1.4, MPI 4.0, Python libraries (mpi4py, zmq)
  • Chapter 6: R, Octave, Hy, Python libraries (rpy2, oct2py, hymagic)
  • Chapter 7: R packages (ggplot2), Python libraries (matplotlib, bokeh, pandas, python-nvd3)
  • Chapter 8: Python libraries (pytest, nose2)
  • Chapter 9: Python libraries (docutils, sphinx)
  • Chapter 10: Jupyter

The list is probably best understood as being cumulative, with each chapter requiring all the software from the previous chapters, plus (possibly) more.
