I've been playing around with my IPython workflow for the past few weeks, and have found one I really like. It uses IPython's startup files, that are launched before the prompt opens up. This way I can load my favourite libraries, functions, etc., into my console. It also allows me to add my own
Today, I've opened up my startup scripts in a github repo, StartupFiles. The repo comes with some helper scripts too, to get your started:
./bin/build_symlink: for linking your startup directory to a local version of the repo.
./bin/ipython_analysis: for going through your ipython history and looking for simple recommendations to add. (Example below)
Here are some small videos about what you can do with the new startup scripts:
%past, %pate, %psate and others
Just because I am always misspelling these!
%lifelines and %stats
Check out StartupFiles and let me know what you think below!
