The IPython notebook is awesome. I love Reason, and I'm super proud of the work we have done on it, but the clunkiest part of Reason is the cell-evaluation (and, it's also the part of it that we spent the least time on.) I think it would be worthwhile to discuss and consider moving forward with de-emphasizing our own notebook solution, embed IPython inside Reason, and then re-focus on providing awesome widgets. I am still reading through the API for the IPython notebook's engine interface, but I believe this could be accomplished by:
- Spinning up an SSL-enabled, passworded IPython engine when reason is started
- Construct actual RPC interfaces for the existing (and new) widgets,
with payload delivery systems 3) Embed the IPython notebook as another widget
Anyway, if you want to test it out, pull the new install script, run it, and then start the notebook with:
There are some pretty awesome things in there. Fernando Perez and I discussed this on a G+ post of his ( https://plus.google.com/105051551851350439748/posts/gd9fDgpV8iY ) and I'd particularly draw your attention to the blog post he cited by Titus Brown ( http://ivory.idyll.org/blog/apr-12/replication-i.html ; I believe his office is just down the hall from where we held the Enzo workshop last Spring!) and the possibilities therein.
Even if down the road we don't find a way to marry Reason widgets with the IPython notebook in a seamless way, I'm still issuing this PR because I would like to make it easier to get up and running with the notebook. Note that they have a detailed discussion of the security implications ( http://ipython.org/ipython-doc/rel-0.12/interactive/htmlnotebook.html#securi... ), which become very important on shared user systems, which I think make up the majority of yt installations.
Thoughts on this?
