IPython reverser is a magic function for IPython that takes an argument and returns a reversed string as the output. The sole purpose of this package is to show how to publish an IPython extension on PyPI.
IPython reverser can be installed as a standard Python package: either from PyPI:
pip install IPythonReverser
or from git:
git clone http://github.com/switowski/ipython-reverser.git cd ipython-reverser/ python setup.py install
This can be imported into an IPython shell session using either:
import ipython_reverser or
Although you probably want it to load when IPython loads, in which case,
edit your IPython profile file (by default
~/.ipython/profile_default/ipython_config.py) and add
ipython_reverser to :
c.TerminalIPythonApp.extensions = [ 'ipython_reverser' ]
(you may need to create this, and can do so with
ipython profile create).
Just pass a string and watch how it magically gets reversed: This can be used as a magic for a single line (line magic):
In : %reverse Hello world Out: 'dlrow olleH'
