IPython – Powerful interactive shell

Sponsored Link
IPython provides a rich architecture for interactive computing with:

Powerful interactive shells (terminal and Qt-based).
A browser-based notebook with support for code, text, mathematical expressions, inline plots and other rich media.
Support for interactive data visualization and use of GUI toolkits.
Flexible, embeddable interpreters to load into your own projects.
Easy to use, high performance tools for parallel computing.

An interactive kernel speaks to clients such as the terminal or web notebook via a well-specified protocol, and all features of a kernel are available to all clients. We ship the official IPython kernel, but kernels for other languages are being currently developed, with prototypes in Ruby and JavaScript already existing. Additionally, the IPython kernel supports multi-language integration, letting you for example mix Python code with Cython, R, Octave, and scripting in Bash, Perl or Ruby.

Install ipython in ubuntu
