[IPython-User] launch/run IPython in emacs buffer
Thu Sep 30 07:46:19 CDT 2010
I can run IPython in an emacs buffer, but would appreciate help with
either of 2 problems:
0 opening an IPython buffer "from anywhere." I can open IPython in an
emacs buffer with the sequence
* open buffer on a python file, e.g. C-x C-f /tmp/py.py
* C-c !
This seems to work appropriately, e.g. M-p scrolls IPython history.
* I'd like also to be able to open an IPython buffer from anywhere (in
emacs), since I often use IPython as a calculator and scratchpad.
* I don't know of an existing command or config that does this.
* I don't know enough elisp to do this.
Hence I'd appreciate a pointer to an existing command or config, or
some elisp (or both) that will open an IPython buffer from anywhere in
1 fix M-p in IPython in shell-mode. When I run IPython in emacs shell
mode (i.e. running `ipython` from a prompt after running `M-x shell`),
IPython runs (with correct prompt, thanks Andrew Wilson). But when I
attempt to scroll IPython history (with M-p at the IPython prompt), I
instead get bash history. Is there a way to make shell-mode pass the
M-p event to IPython?
FWIW, I'm running
Ubuntu 10.04.1 LTS, GNOME, 64-bit
GNU Emacs 184.108.40.206 from ubuntu package=emacs-snapshot
IPython 0.10 from ubuntu package
python-mode 5.1.0 from https://launchpad.net/python-mode/
Python 2.6.5 from ubuntu package
