Description (last modified by )
Sage prompts with leading whitespace are not removed correctly:
sage: 1+1 # works 2 sage: sage: 1+1 # works 2 sage: sage: 1+1 # indent + prompt = fail File "<ipythoninput34360e106e9b2f>", line 1 sage: Integer(1)+Integer(1) # indent + prompt = fail ^ SyntaxError: invalid syntax
Possibly due to #16050

This should work for now, although I looked a bit into the upstream code, and that should probably be changed to be more configurable (since after all the prompt is configurable).

Oh, sorry, I didn't see this ticket and introduced #16232 which strips leading whitespace. Do we close that one as a duplicate? (Meanwhile, it has a positive review, by the way.)
 Why only strip one prompt? I see the explanation that we are trying to match IPython's behavior, but do we need to preserve backwardcompatibility?
 What is the point of the change to
src/sage/repl/ipython_extension.py
? Just changing the regular expression (as at #16232) seems to solve the problem.

Is there sage code that is being written with sage (duplicate) prompts? Really duplicate prompts should only come about by copying something into a terminal session, and then copying that pasted content again  this seems like a complete edge case that wouldn't (and certainly shouldn't) show up in some code that is meant to be used for a long period of time.

IPython already has a dedenter, and it is smart (it strips an equal amount from each line), so all we need to do is strip our prompts after ipython dedents, and for the moment, that means insert after position 0 (and before position 1, so as to not rebreak #16154).

Like I mentioned, this should just be configurable with IPython itself  we shouldn't have to be pulling this internal _strip_prompts
function in the first place. I'll make a patch if I ever find the time to fix this upstream, but I'm much to busy at the moment.

 Resolution set to fixed
 Status changed from positive_review to closed
It looks like the change from #16154 broke this (ipython's leading indent stripper is now being run after our prompt stripper). I can look into this sometime later this week.
