[IPython-dev] Embedding IPython in wx

Yep sure J, it synced with ipython trunk.

To know how to use it check wxPython.py in /gui/wx that is the demo app.

If you turn into trouble fell free to ask. I need bug reports ;)

To make it works don’t forget you will need ipython AND pyreadline.

Hi Laurent.

Thank you for your help.

I actually want to embed an ipython shell inside a wx application.  I don't need a dev env because I use emacs/command line for that :)    The IPythonShellPlugin <http://code.google.com/p/editra-plugins/wiki/IPythonShellPlugin>  for editra looks really cool.  Would you happen to know if editra uses the control available from the ipython stable ipython_view.py?

Hi igor,


Depends on wich ipython you want a GUI:



If you're looking after ipython0 check latest bzr stable branch in gui/wx, there is a demo app wxIpython, that is based on ipython_view.py

(install bazarr + "bzr branch lp:ipython/stable")

If you're looking with a dev env with ipython0 console, editra : http://editra.org/ has now a plugin with ipython0 shell.(in beta currently)




There is some functionality missing:

-History reload on startup

-and check all %magic keys

-some doc J


But start to be quite usable.(any bug report welcomes)


If you want to help you're welcome.



If it is Ipython1, then there is a lot of work for you too J. Barry is working on a cocoa backend, (can help to copy some parts) and there is a starting demo on wx too. Wx one need refresh.

I asked in the enthought-dev mailing list about embedding an ipython shell within a window.  This way I can break off from Windows' terrible console and add toolbars and other widgets next to the shell.  I was told however that this is not immediately possible because some functionality is missing.  I'd like to implement this functionality so any first directions and explanations of what's missing is greatly appreciated.
