Hi all,

we've been lurking on the list for a few weeks.  We hope to have IPython 
support in PythonAnywhere in the next week or two.  If you guys are 
keen, we could probably serve up a "try it now" iframe, with a live 
IPython interpreter for people to use, straight from your site...

Here's a screenshot by way of a teaser.  All nice colours, tab 
completion works...  We'd probably need a couple more experience IPython 
users to beta test though?

more info here: http://www.pythonanywhere.com/

rgds,
Harry
