How to install django-shell-ipynb
- Download and install ActivePython
- Open Command Prompt
pypm install django-shell-ipynb
This Django app adds one shell command, shell_ipynb, which starts up the IPython Notebook as your Django shell instead of the default. The IPython Notebook has several advantages, including that you can save a whole experimentation session as a reusable notebook, and HTML-based completion and code documentation.
The easiest way to install django-shell-ipynb is to use pip. Either do this from pypi:
pip install django-shell-ipynb
Or directly from github:
pip install git+git://github.com/cpbotha/django-shell-ipynb.git
After successful installation, add it to your Django project's INSTALLED_APPS.
After having done this, you can start up the IPython Notebook Django shell with:
python manage.py shell_ipynb
At which point your browser should start up with the IPython Dashboard, from which you can create new or edit existing notebooks.
You can get the same behaviour with the shell_plus management command added by django-extensions app, which comes with a whole bunch of other management commands you might want or not want.
