[IPython-User] IPython parallel functionality added to http://wiki.python.org/moin/ParallelProcessing
Tue Dec 14 07:29:39 CST 2010
You're very welcome about adding IPython to the wiki. I would not have
known about the parallel stuff in IPython if I hadn't read the manual in
Deciding how to list it was actually the hardest part of putting it in
the wiki. The parallel capability does not have a uniform name, as far
as I know. It is just "the parallel functionality in IPython" right now.
Do you think it should have a name? The import name is not very
descriptive: "from IPython.kernel import client".
Having a name speaks to the "is the parallelism separable?" discussion
also on ipython-user now, but even without being separated, it might be
nice to have a uniform shorthand name. I offer some strawmen:
parallel IPython (capitalized or not)
(or IPyCluster? Another digression: I see several projects with "IP" as
a prefix, but that has many meanings; "IPy" seems more specific to me.)
