Summary: IPython: Productive Interactive Computing
Author: The IPython Development Team
License: BSD
IPython provides a rich toolkit to help you make the most out of using Python
interactively. Its main components are:
* Powerful interactive Python shells (terminal- and Qt-based).
* A web-based interactive notebook environment with all shell features plus
support for embedded figures, animations and rich media.
* Support for interactive data visualization and use of GUI toolkits.
* Flexible, embeddable interpreters to load into your own projects.
* A high-performance library for high level and interactive parallel computing
that works in multicore systems, clusters, supercomputing and cloud scenarios.
The enhanced interactive Python shells have the following main features:
* Comprehensive object introspection.
* Input history, persistent across sessions.
* Caching of output results during a session with automatically generated
* 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.
The parallel computing architecture has the following main features:
* Quickly parallelize Python code from an interactive Python/IPython session.
* A flexible and dynamic process model that be deployed on anything from
multicore workstations to supercomputers.
* An architecture that supports many different styles of parallelism, from
message passing to task farming.
* Both blocking and fully asynchronous interfaces.
* High level APIs that enable many things to be parallelized in a few lines
of code.
* Share live parallel jobs with other users securely.
* Dynamically load balanced task farming system.
* Robust error handling in parallel code.
The latest development version is always available from IPython's `GitHub
