Description (last modified by )
We need to upgrade IPython to the shiny new thing. Well, not really - the shiny new thing was 0.11, and 0.12 is now stable. It's been mostly rewritten and is now a lot more modular, as I understand it. Definitely worth using in Sage.
apply:
Install IPython 0.12 (spkg coming soon...)

Would be nice but we need some porting, here is what typically happen if you try to use ipython-0.12 with sage (we had several reports in sage-on-gentoo before I pinned down the version used by sage):
$ sage ---------------------------------------------------------------------- | Sage Version 4.7.2, Release Date: 2011-10-29 | | Type notebook() for the GUI, and license() for information. | ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/bin/sage-ipython", line 19, in <module> from IPython.CrashHandler import CrashHandler ImportError: No module named CrashHandler

Yes, obviously :) I'm just making this ticket since it is absolutely must be an eventual goal for us and nobody else has made a ticket yet, even though IPython 0.12 has been out for about three months.

To be honest Fernando Perez and I talked about it on the mailing list at the time of ipython 0.11 and I said I would tell him what happens when we use ipython 0.11+ with sage because he is interested. For various reason I haven't been able to go back to it. But some sage-on-gentoo users eventually got a taste of it when it finally landed in the portage tree.
So first hurdle: do something about the crash handling.

I'm working on this now, and have made quite a bit of progress. As an added bonus, making the Sage customizations to IPython is quite a bit cleaner. I should hopefully be able to clean out the mess in sage/misc/preparser_ipython.py and sage/misc/interpreter.py .

This will fix #4413.

Great, I'm glad you're on the case! :)

What about zmq/pyzmq? It would really add to the functionality and I'm interested in the parallel/cluster support. But, strictly speaking, its not necessary to run ipython. Its also used in the new notebook so maybe its time for it to become a standard package?

CCing Jason as he expressed interest on sage-devel.

mhansen: we'd love to see your work-in-progress if it's available somewhere. I just spent some time reading the IPython docs again and thinking about how we could use it to implement the notebook hub and worker processes.
comment:13 Changed 9 years ago by
I've posted patches which let Sage work with IPython 0.12 as well as cleaning up some old messy code. These should be in a state where they're ready to review.
I haven't done anything with preparing an spkg yet.

I've updated the instructions in the description. Please correct if I messed something up.
