QGIS IPython Console

This plugin embeds the IPython interpreter inside of QGIS and provides functionality for spawning consoles that are connected to this interpreter. IPython offers several advantages over the standard QGIS Python console that make an ideal tool for software development and exploratory data analysis:

  • Tab-completion, function call tips and quick access to Python docstrings.

  • Inline display of graphs and charts.

  • Many more features such as a distributed computing framework and quick access to the underlying filesystem and shell. See the IPython Introduction for a complete overview.

An installation of IPython 0.12 or newer is required along with the Pygments module. The QGIS IPython Console is currently flagged as experimental and functionality may vary dramatically between releases.

Version numbers for this plugin are assigned according to the principles of Semantic Versioning.
