[IPython-dev] How to know if code is executing in a rich display (qtconsole or notebook)

Hi all,

Is there a sane way to know if some code is executing in a rich display
environment like the qtconsole or the notebook?

I think the following could work:

    from ipykernel.zmqshell import ZMQInteractiveShell
    ip = get_ipython()
    rich_display = isinstance(ip, ZMQInteractiveShell)
    rich_display = False
