IPython 0.13: merge user configuration with Sage configuration
Reported by:  jhpalmieri  Owned by:  jason

Description (last modified by )
After #12719, user configuration files (in .sage/ipython0.12/profile_default/
and .../profile_sage/
) seem to be effectively ignored: I think they are read after the Sage terminal app has already been initialized, at which point it is too late.
The attached patch remedies this, reading the configuration from .sage/ipython0.12/profile_default/ipython_config.py
during the initialization. Question: should it read from this directory or from profile_sage
?
Apply trac_14188_vb.patch and trac_14188_docfix.patch

Here's a new version which reads from profile_sage
.

I changed your code to override load_config_file()
instead of stuffing it in the ctor. Now the configuration is only loaded once, as one can easily check by putting a print statement into ipython_config.py
.
Also, after discussion with Jason and William we decided to default to colors in the terminal. For simplicity I just added this into this patch.

And I agree with your changes, of course. Feel free to set it to positive review if you are happy with it.

And IPython is of course not smart enough to turn off colors when the output is a pipe, thanks a bunch. The second patch is the oneline fix to do it by hand.

Second patch needs review.
comment:11 Changed 9 years ago by
If someone customizes their IPython configuration, this can cause doctests to fail (for example, if you turn on an output prompt like "Out[1]:", interfaces/sage0.py fails). I think this is okay, but I'm going to post at #12415 about it.

All tests passed.

I see doctest failures on OS X 10.6: http://build.sagemath.org/sage/builders/UW%20bsd%20%28OSX%2010.6%20x86_64%29/builds/214/steps/shell_8/logs/stdio

Same problem on lena (Fedora 16 x86_64): http://build.sagemath.org/sage/builders/Skynet%20lena%20%28Fedora%2016%20x86_64%29/builds/113/steps/shell_7/logs/stdio
comment:15 Changed 9 years ago by
I see this on bsd.math.washington.edu (OS X 10.6), but I have no problems on lena.
comment:16 followup: ↓ 18 Changed 9 years ago by
A typical failure on OS X 10.6:
sage: subsage = Sage() sage: s = ZZ(subsage('initial_seed()')) <boom>
It looks like when running Sage as a subprocess on this platform, sys.stdout.isatty()
returns True
, even while doctesting. How else can we detect this situation?
comment:17 Changed 9 years ago by
Pexpect runs in a pty, so on any platform isatty() will return true. This is why we explicitly disable colors when starting a sageinsage session. My current theory is that the pty gets messed up somehow by the ansi codes since we disable colors by sending %colors NoColor
, so at least one colored prompt will be displayed. I'm currently trying if disabling color via command line switch works...
comment:18 in reply to: ↑ 16 Changed 9 years ago by
Replying to jhpalmieri:
How else can we detect this situation?
pexpect children have the environment variable TERM
unset (#12221, similar: #12263). We did this precisely to solve problems like this where the terminal did strange things.
sage: "TERM" in os.environ True sage: sage0('"TERM" in os.environ') False

A change like this fixes the failures on bsd.math.washington.edu. I haven't run a full test suite yet.

sage/misc/interpreter.py
diff git a/sage/misc/interpreter.py b/sage/misc/interpreter.py
a b 660 660 verbose_crash = True), 661 661 TerminalInteractiveShell = Config( 662 662 ast_node_interactivity = 'all', 663 colors = 'LightBG' if sys.stdout.isatty() else 'NoColor',663 colors = 'LightBG' if (sys.stdout.isatty() and 'TERM' in os.environ) else 'NoColor', 664 664 confirm_exit = False, 665 665 separate_in = ''), 666 666 # The extension is *always* loaded for SageTerminalApp
comment:20 Changed 9 years ago by
I'd rather always turn off colors in the sage<>sage interface than rely on the TERM
variable. The updated patch fixes sage0 on OSX (bsd.math) for me.

This passes tests for me on bsd.

It should read from
/profile_sage/ipython_config.py
for sure.
