iPython - Notebook

About

The developers of IPython have build the IPython Notebook, a system inspired by Mathematica that allows you to create “executable documents.” IPython Notebooks can integrate:

  • formatted text (Markdown),
  • executable code (Python),
  • mathematical formulae (LaTeX),
  • and graphics/visualizations (matplotlib)

into a single document that captures the flow of an exploration and can be exported as a formatted report or an executable script.

Management

ShortCut

You can run a cell by:

  • pressing “shift-enter”, which will compute the current cell and advance to the next cell,
  • or by clicking in a cell and pressing “control-enter”, which will compute the current cell and remain in that cell.
