A Kdb/Q kernel for Jupyter

Project description

A Jupyter kernel for Kdb/q

No other dependencies beides Jupyter and Q. Easy setup.

It is probably very rough around the edges, but seems to work. Please report any issues you end up having.

Other Existing Kernels


  • [STRIKEOUT:Multiline support] Should be done now

  • Image support?

  • Code cleanup

  • Implementing code completion.

  • Testing (I doubt k support currently works)

  • [STRIKEOUT:Pip/Conda publication]


This requires IPython 3. Note that q must be in your path and $QHOME must be correctly defined.

pip install kdbq_kernel
python -m kdbq_kernel.install

To make sure it is installed:

jupyter kernelspec list

To use it, run one of:

jupyter notebook
# In the notebook interface, select Kdb/Q from the 'New' menu
jupyter qtconsole --kernel kdbq
jupyter console --kernel kdbq
