The IPython Notebook¶
The IPython Notebook is a web-based interactive computational environment where you can combine code execution, text, mathematics, plots and rich media into a single document:
These notebooks are normal files that can be shared with colleagues, converted to other formats such as HTML or PDF, etc. You can share any publicly available notebook by using the IPython Notebook Viewer service which will render it as a static web page. This makes it easy to give your colleagues a document they can read immediately without having to install anything.
To learn more about using the IPython Notebook, you can visit our example collection, and you can read the documentation for all the details on how to use and configure the system. The Notebook Gallery showcases many interesting notebooks covering a variety of topics, from basic programming to advanced scientific computing.
Here is a short demo of the notebook’s basic features by the Pybonacci team:
