About

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.

Installation

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 %load_ext ipython_reverser

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).

Usage

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 [1]: %reverse Hello world
Out[1]: 'dlrow olleH'
You can’t perform that action at this time.
