Original Launchpad bug 405582: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ipython/+bug/405582
Reported by: fdo.perez (Fernando Perez).
there is a little Emacs module with fixes for ipython.el and what appear to be other improvements. We should contact its author, listed as
Thierry Volpiatto - thierry.volpiatto AT gmail.com
to inquire whether he'd be interested in contributing this code upstream (i.e. with us). As it currently stands his code is GPL'd but it's a tiny module on top of ipython.el itself (which is BSD), so hopefully the author will be amenable to relicensing it as BSD so its changes can be merged back with ipython proper.
Do we still want these improvements? Any Emacs users?
@fperez: Is this still likely to work, and to be any kind of improvement on the ipython.el we already ship? I know emacs users are asking for better integration.
No idea, but since @deftpunk is helping out with emacs integration on #938 already, perhaps he'd be willing to have a look at this?
Mentioned this one to those helping with #1015, so that we can hopefully close this one.
@paykroyd, @deftpunk: do you think you guys could give us a hand with this one, and let us know if there's anything left in that 'anythingipython.el' that we could use to improve ipython.el, or whether we should close this one? Sorry to pester you, and it's ok if you don't have time, but you guys are basically our 'emacs team' :)
No worries. I can take a look in the next few days.
@fperez, it looks like all of the changes there are to get completion options appearing in the anything buffer which doesn't seem generally useful for ipython.el since it requires anything.el. I didn't see any other general fixes in the commits there. You're probably OK closing it.
@paykroyd, many thanks for that feedback. Closing as per your suggestion. Glad we finally have some emacs expertise in the house :)
fix dynamicmode; use higher level sticker api. closes #22
