[IPython-dev] Building an integrated measurement system with IPython

Thank you very much for your comments.

The module widgets looks awesome, and will avoid me having to put dirty
hacks in an ipython fork. It seems that most of what I want can be done
just with a custom profile/nbextension.

IPython. At least, it should be possible to make a proof of concept that
could work for the basic use cases, and potentially evolve from there. In
fact now that I discovered the widgets module, I am a little bit more
confident I could achieve some of the goals :).

I guess the main question I have for now is how to do something like:

def method_to_measure_in_remote_engine():
    for point in points_to_measure:
        result=measure_one_point(point)
        update_local_dispay_and_dict(result)

Can't see anything here that could help:

Best regards,

Zahari.
