A wx-python based notebook environment for interactive computing

Project description

More screenshots


Pynotebook is a an interactive shell for python, similar to the python command line but much nicer to work with. Notebooks can contain python code together with output and documentation. Notebooks are a pleasant way to develop and document python code and to store ideas.


Most notable features are:

  • syntax highlighting
  • command completion (tab-key)
  • built-in graphics
  • plotting via matplotlib
  • BSD-license

Pynotebook does not need a webbrowser, c extensions or anything except python and wxPython. Pynotebook runs completely out of the box and is therefore easy to embed and distribute.


Do in a console:

python ./ build

and then as root:

python ./ install

This will install the pynb application and the pynotebook module.

To open a notebook:

pynb demo/ball.pnb
