[IPython-dev] nbopen & nbmanager - a pair of tools for IPython Notebook on your own machine

I've been working on a couple of tools to improve the experience of working
with IPython notebooks on your own computer.

First, nbopen, a tool to open a notebook in the nearest available server,
or start a new server if there isn't one available. It now integrates with
your file manager so you can double click on a notebook file to open it
(open source desktops only for now, PRs for other systems welcome):


However, there's no easy way to shut down notebook servers launched by
double clicking on notebooks, because there isn't a terminal where you can
press ctrl-c. So I also made nbmanager, a GUI app which discovers running
notebook servers and open notebooks, and lets you easily shut them down:


nbopen will work on IPython 2, while nbmanager, which is more experimental,
requires you to be running IPython from git at the moment.
