Embedding IPython Into Other Applications

The architecture of IPython is built with reusable components. These components include:

  • The configuration system for processing command line arguments and configuration files
  • The IPython InteractiveShell object that provides the core interactive features across the entire code base
  • The IPython kernel, which provides the capabilities of the InteractiveShell object over a ZeroMQ/JSON based message protocol to various frontends
  • The IPython frontends (Notebook, Qt Console, Console, Terminal)

These components can be embedded into other applications.
