A notebook interface similar to mathematica / ipython

Project description


Pynotebook is a command shell for interactive computing following the “notebook” concept. Notebooks originally appeared with the program Mathematica and became famous for python with the iPython/Jupyter project. Unlike iPython, pynotebook does not need a webbrowser, c extensions or anything except python and wx. It is a python module, runs out of the box and therefore is easy to embed and distribute.

Most notable features of pynotebook are:

  • syntax highlighting
  • command completion (tab-key)
  • matplotlib plotting
  • BSD-license

There are a couple of demo applications: - a plotting demo - a notebook interface to gnu r

The later demonstrates how to completely modify the notebook. It uses rpy2 for interfacing gnu r and pygments for colorization.

Basic usage

>>> from pynotebook.nbview import NBView
>>> import wx
>>> app = wx.App()
>>> frame = wx.Frame(None)
>>> view = NBView(frame)
>>> frame.Show()
>>> app.MainLoop()
