[IPython-dev] ANN: Exhibitionist - integrating HTML/JS UIs into interactive python work

Here's hoping mailman picks this up into the correct thread...
Thanks for the heads up.
I'm looking forward to superior functionality being available
in IPython, though your roadmap is unclear on whether
this will actually land late this year or in 2014.
To reiterate, The only IPython functionality needed
is the ability to load and view remote HTML pages, and that only
as a substitute to using a separate browser window.
Is that really something you're planning to disallow?
If so, I strongly urge you not to throw away a feature that makes
IPython-notebook as powerful as the web.
Wouldn't an Opt-in mechanism be sufficient?
As for strong assumptions, The only assumption I'm really making
is that there's a network connection between the front-end and
where the kernel is. Cross-origin issues are already addressed with
built-in JSONP and CORS support.
Could you elaborate on how this assumption might be violated in the future?
Surely a user working on his laptop on a local file, with a local kernel
should be able to access local urls. I'm less interested in other
use-cases, and frankly don't have the resources to pursue them.
I'm trying to keep things generic, so hopefully views will be
easily portable to the new architecture when it arrives.
I've started work on a crossfilter (http://square.github.com/crossfilter/ ) based
"lasso" UI, that allows you to graphically filter a python dataset by selecting
points across different dimensions, and pick up the filtered dataset back in python.
Unless I hit a wall, there should be a demo up in a couple of weeks.
