IPython ZMQ layer

Registered by Andreas Roehler on 2011-09-05

as IPython is a huge project of it's own, seems worth some considerations when dealing with it from python-mode.

For the moment the following bug-report from Sat, 03 Sep 2011 12:16:04 +0200, <email address hidden>:

Thanks, Pedro. If you're comfortable working with emacs lisp, feel free to
make more extensive changes to ipython.el, or to write a new one. Paul
Ivanov recently wrote a very nice IPython integration layer for vim, using
the new ZMQ protocol. I'm sure emacs users would love something similar, but
so far no-one's been motivated to write it.

Best wishes,
Thomas

Whiteboard

ipython.el comments:

;; It also enables a
;; persistent py-shell command history across sessions (if you exit python
;; with C-d in py-shell)

Think that's not IPython related, Will take it from ipython.el into python-mode.el

(?)
