ipython 5.1.0

IPython: Productive Interactive Computing

IPython provides a rich toolkit to help you make the most out of using Python interactively. Its main components are:

  • A powerful interactive Python shell
  • A Jupyter kernel to work with Python code in Jupyter notebooks and other interactive frontends.

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 references.
  • 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 latest development version is always available from IPython’s GitHub site.
