Project description

tutormagic extension for the Jupyter notebook
=============================================

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Recommendation
==============

Have a look to `nbtutor <https://github.com/lgpage/nbtutor>`_, a more polished and better solution.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Jupyter notebook magics to embed http://www.pythontutor.com within an IFrame in
the Jupyter notebook or to open a new tab in the browser using the code from a
notebook code cell (using the IPython kernel).

Install
-------

.. code:: python

pip install tutormagic

or

.. code:: python

conda install tutormagic

or (for the development version)

.. code:: python

pip install git+https://github.com/kikocorreoso/tutormagic.git

Tested on Python 2.7.x, 3.4.x, 3.5.x and 3.6.x and IPython/Jupyter 3.x/4.x/5.x.

Usage
-----

First, load the extension:

.. code:: python

%load_ext tutormagic

Once loaded, in a code cell in the notebook type the following:

.. code:: python

%%tutor --lang python3
# some python code
# ...

to create an IFrame within the notebook with the http://www.pythontutor.com page
with the code included in the Jupyter code cell or:

.. code:: python

%%tutor --lang python3 --tab
# some python code
# ...

to open http://www.pythontutor.com page in a new browser tab with the code
included in the Jupyter code cell.

Options
-------

``--lang`` or ``-l``: it allows you to
choose one of the available languages supported by
`pythontutor <http://www.pythontutor.com>`__. It this option is set then
it will consider the code in the cell as Python3 code.

- ``%%tutor --lang python3`` or ``%%tutor -l python3`` or ``%%tutor``
to show a pythontutor IFrame with **python3** code.
- ``%%tutor --lang python2`` or ``%%tutor -l python2`` to show a
pythontutor IFrame with **python2** code.
- ``%%tutor --lang java`` or ``%%tutor -l java`` to show a pythontutor
IFrame with **java** code.
- ``%%tutor --lang javascript`` or ``%%tutor -l javascript`` to show a
pythontutor IFrame with **javascript** code.
- ``%%tutor --lang typescript`` or ``%%tutor -l typescript`` to show a
pythontutor IFrame with **typescript** code.
- ``%%tutor --lang ruby`` or ``%%tutor -l ruby`` to show a
pythontutor IFrame with **ruby** code.
- ``%%tutor --lang c`` or ``%%tutor -l c`` to show a
pythontutor IFrame with **c** code.
- ``%%tutor --lang c++`` or ``%%tutor -l c++`` to show a
pythontutor IFrame with **c++** code.

``--height`` or ``-h``: it changes the height of the output area display in pixels. It is used to define the height of the IFrame used to embed http://pythontutor.com within the notebook. If the `--tab` option is used
this option will be ignored.

``--tab`` or ``-t``: it will open http://pythontutor.com in a new tab
instead of within an IFrame within the notebook.

``--secure`` or ``-s``: it will use HTTPS to open PythonTutor.com. This is useful when being used in a notebook that uses SSL.

``--link`` or ``-k``: it will display a link to PythonTutor, not via an iFrame.

``--run`` or ``-r``: Use this option if you also want to run the code in the cell in the notebook.

You can customize how PythonTutor is rendered via the options available below in the URL params. The following options are available:

- Use the ``--cumulative`` option to tell PythonTutor to the cumulative to True

- Use the ``--heapPrimitives`` option to tell PythonTutor to render objects on the heap

- Use the ``--textReferences`` option to tell PythonTutor to use text labels for references
- Use the ``--curInstr`` followed by a number to start the visualisation at the defined step

- Use the ``--verticalStack`` to set visualization to stack atop one another.
