Description (last modified by )
We need to upgrade IPython to the shiny new thing. Well, not really - the shiny new thing was 0.11, and 0.13 is now stable. It's been mostly rewritten and is now a lot more modular, as I understand it. Definitely worth using in Sage.
Note: To use the QT console (sage -ipython qtconsole
), you need qt/qt-devel in your base OS install, the optional zeromq/pyzmq spkgs from #12843, and the optional sip/PyQt spkgs from #13022.
Install the IPython 0.13 spkg at http://sage.math.washington.edu/home/jason/ipython-0.13.spkg

Would be nice but we need some porting, here is what typically happen if you try to use ipython-0.12 with sage (we had several reports in sage-on-gentoo before I pinned down the version used by sage):
$ sage ---------------------------------------------------------------------- | Sage Version 4.7.2, Release Date: 2011-10-29 | | Type notebook() for the GUI, and license() for information. | ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/bin/sage-ipython", line 19, in <module> from IPython.CrashHandler import CrashHandler ImportError: No module named CrashHandler
comment:3 Changed 10 years ago by
Yes, obviously :) I'm just making this ticket since it is absolutely must be an eventual goal for us and nobody else has made a ticket yet, even though IPython 0.12 has been out for about three months.
comment:4 Changed 10 years ago by
To be honest Fernando Perez and I talked about it on the mailing list at the time of ipython 0.11 and I said I would tell him what happens when we use ipython 0.11+ with sage because he is interested. For various reason I haven't been able to go back to it. But some sage-on-gentoo users eventually got a taste of it when it finally landed in the portage tree.
So first hurdle: do something about the crash handling.

Just curious: do your patches work with the current 0.12, or did you base them on the current git master (or does it not matter?). On the IPython mailing list, they mentioned that 0.12 had some big bugs, so they were thinking about cutting a quick 0.12.1. Also, they expect 0.13 in about a month.
comment:18 Changed 10 years ago by
I was thinking more about security today with the zmq messages. I think it may be more secure to have a default ipcontroller transport of IPC in a directory inside of $DOT_SAGE, rather than tcp over the loopback interface. That would be more secure in that random people on your computer wouldn't be able to try to register with the IPython hub. I emailed the IPython mailing list about it: http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.comp.python.ipython.devel/7789
What do you think?

I've looked at the current git master as I was making these changes, and I think these changes should work fine with what's on there. I'd be surprised if it made a difference.

comment:25 Changed 10 years ago by
I get a crash when I apply these (with a latest git IPython). I've posted the crash report at http://sage.math.washington.edu/home/jason/Sage_crash_report.txt
comment:26 Changed 10 years ago by
Is the zmq communication in ipython going through tcp/localhost sockets, or through UDS sockets? I really think we should use UDS sockets with the files in $DOTSAGE so that it is more secure (i.e., random other people on the computer can't connect to the kernel).
comment:27 Changed 10 years ago by
By default we should not use zeromq. For example, if you want to fork you should do so before creating a zmq context. The zmq context creates threads and open file descriptors.
Apart from that, you should either use IPC or TCP+magic cookie, much like the X window system. Implementation wise its probably easiest to allow any socket and alway check the magic cookie.
comment:28 Changed 10 years ago by
I don't think we have a choice of whether or not to use zmq with the new ipython. ZMQ is an integral part of how it communicates results from the backend to the frontend. They do have a system for signing messages and ignoring unsigned messages (is that the magic cookie thing?). UDS sockets is IPC, so we're good there. My problem with TCP+magic cookie is that it still allows someone else to attempt to connect to the various sockets, whereas using IPC, with the socket files in $DOTSAGE, filesystem permissions prevent others from even attempting to connect.
comment:29 Changed 10 years ago by
It may be that I'm misunderstanding how ipython is using zmq when you just execute 'ipython'. It may be that it uses in-process communication (using zmq) instead of opening ports on localhost. I've posted to the ipython-devel mailing list about this.
comment:30 Changed 10 years ago by
Given that you can build IPython without zeromq support it surely must be possible to run without?
I don't see the problem with tcp + magic cookie. Yes you can connect but your connection attempt will be ignored. And the difference in pyzmq to ipc + magic cookie is a single string. So why bother with ipc without magic cookie?
comment:31 Changed 10 years ago by
Thomas on the ipython mailing list confirmed that the plain ipython command doesn't use zmq, so that was a big misunderstanding I had about the new ipython. So never mind what I said about sockets.

comment:32 Changed 10 years ago by
Okay, I fixed the problem with edit_module.
Sorry I wasn't clear about the default IPython not using zmq. There is a experimental console shell that uses two processes which can be accessed with "ipython console", but we aren't using that at all.

When doing %edit, I edit the sage library file, but the file isn't copied over to the library after editing, so the changes don't take effect. This doesn't hold back this issue, though, since it didn't work before either.

Hmmm, it looks like the scripts/ patch wasn't applied (the problematic line is deleted in the patch). Can you check again that trac_12719-scripts.patch is applied to the SAGE_ROOT/local/bin repository?

Replying to jason:
Maybe the problem is in the IPython 0.12.1->0.13 changes.
On sage-5.0.rc0, I managed to apply the three patches and sage starts correctly. So I guess it's not a matter of IPython 0.13 changes. Although, the sage prompt is not in color anymore (my file .sage/ipython/ipythonrc is set to dark background color).
Is the ipython notebook suppose to work? How should I test it?

The new ipython configuration files are once more incompatible with the previous ones. My patch versions the directory now (that is, it is named .sage/ipython-VERSION) and deletes the SAGE_ROOT/ipythonrc stuff. I think all sage-specific configuration should go into sage/misc/interface.py

In Sage before this patch, the sage notebook, the Python command line, etc., we have:
for i in range(10): i
outputs the numbers up to 10.
With the new Ipython spkg, etc., we don't.
sage: for i in range(10): i sage: Exiting Sage (CPU time 0m0.07s, Wall time 2m3.22s). blastoff:sage wstein$ sage -ipython Python 2.7.2 (default, May 17 2012, 13:12:30) In [1]: for i in range(10): i In [2]:
I'm disappointed, especially because I thought this through and in sagews I recently wrote code so this works correctly in a single cell, even if there are several instances of this. It's a matter of passing the 'single' option to exec, as is documented in the Python reference. I wonder why they screwed this up in Ipython 0.12...?
Anyway, I'm not saying this is a show stopper at all - I want the new ipython in sage. I'm just a little concerned that literally the first thing I tried shows that they made what I consider a bad design choice. Hopefully it was just bad luck.
comment:50 Changed 10 years ago by
Cool -- I tried out a bunch of other things including the new notebook (sage -ipython notebook) and didn't run into any serious issues. So I'm happy with this from from a purely functional perspective. Also, deleting tons of ugly code (done in the patches), looks great.
comment:51 Changed 10 years ago by
It should be easy to get to get the correct functionality for for i in range(10): i

- Just throw a deprecation warning with SAGE_CLEAN
- Turn autoindent back on.

I've also renamed trac_13013_ROOT_configuration_files.patch (wrong ticket number) and added a patch to auto-dedent and eval in loops. Now the following works:

Fernando Perez responded:
BTW, regarding William's comment, that was not a mistake or omission: it was a very deliberate choice we made after lots of thought. Given that we manage numbered prompts and history, and that matplotlib produces so many plots as side effects, after much experimentation we found it worked much better to only execute with 'interactive' mode the last block.
Sage doesn't distinguish stdout from python sys.displayhook, so the opposite behavior may be more desirable, but we actually consider that a 'bad design choice' of sage, because it loses an important distinction and the cache management of output history.
So in summary: our choice is actually sensible and consistent given IPython's internal design :)
comment:76 follow-up: ↓ 78 Changed 9 years ago by
Fernando: I looked in the IPython source, and it seems that IPython is a little more subtle than mentioned above. By default, it only executes the last block as interactive (compile in 'single' mode) if it is an expression. In Sage, we (by default) execute the last block always in 'single' mode. I think that is the difference here.
Given that (and if I understood correctly), could you explain again your reasoning for choosing to not compile in 'single' mode if it isn't an expression?
Note to self for future reference: for i in range(10): i
invokes sys.displayhook 10 times to display i if compiled in 'single' mode.
comment:77 Changed 9 years ago by
Also, note to William: it is an easy option to set to have IPython *always* execute the last block in interactive mode. It's just not the default.

Given that (and if I understood correctly), could you explain again your reasoning for choosing to not compile in 'single' mode if it isn't an expression?
And here is Fernando's response:
Precisely so that if the last block has a loop, it doesn't produce multiple Out [NN]
cells. We want to keep a one-to-one mapping between a cell and its output. For example it's quite common to write code like:
for i in x: plot(x[i], label='blah_i')
If we compile that as 'single', we'd get all the Matplotlib line collection results piling up at the bottom, one for each plot call.
We played a *lot* with various options, and settled on this behavior after much experimentation. After 2 years of using it, I remain convinced it's the right solution *for us*. Not to say that Sage can't make a different choice that works better for you guys, of course!

Hi fbissey, sorry for hijacking this a bit, but i had exactly the same problem over and over again. What I just found out (and I think it really helps) is to temporarily disable the paths containing ".local" in sys.path in the sage-ipython file. The reason is, that ipython seems to import the "site package" (disable it for pure python via "-S"), because that's where my ipython 0.13 is.
So, by adding this to sage-ipython you I have both at the same time:
~~~ after import sys oldpath = sys.path sys.path = filter(lambda s : '.local' not in s, sys.path) import IPython sys.path = oldpath

comment:83 Changed 9 years ago by
My 2 cents, after I forced myself to use this for the last few weeks on my laptop. I have found the new ipython to be pretty annoying. The cut and paste behavior and lack of autoindent at the command line is pretty painful. The thing that made me finally give up and revert to the old 0.10 ipython was when I hit control-c at the wrong moment when starting Sage, and somehow the ipython history sqlite database got in a weird locked state. Nothing I could think to do (including deleting $HOME/.sage/ipython) got this unstuck. Maybe rebooting would have worked; I don't know. I'm concerned about how stable and well-tested in the wild the new ipython is. Proceed with caution.

Working cut&past and working autoindent are contradictory goals. The terminal just sees a stream of characters, you either inject indentation or not. AFAIR I turned off auto-indent, we could turn that back on. Breaks pasting of indented text, of course.
The ipython dir is now versioned, you should have deleted $DOT_SAGE/ipython-0.12
/ $DOT_SAGE/ipython-0.13

PS: Maybe you can upload your broken ipython dir somewhere, this would be a good testcase to catch the sqlite error...

IMO, leave auto-indent on, and use %paste
or %cpaste
when you want to paste. %paste
tries to automatically get the contents of your clipboard. If that's not working for whatever reason, %cpaste
creates a prompt where you can paste text verbatim, which IPython doesn't read until you end input with Ctrl+D or a line containing only the text "--".

For the record, thats not how I use the commandline. I paste code all the time, but I almost never enter multi-line statements manually. So I'd rather have autoindent off by default (and no need for %cpaste
), and use %autoindent
if I want it on. Though thats of course a matter of personal preferences, and I'm happy with whatever the majority prefers...

At least it is configurable, right? I think it is best not to change the default from what it is already in all previous versions of Sage, whether or not that is what the majority prefers (unless it is a huge majority). I'm not fan of changing UI's on people unless it is absolutely necessary.

Well IPythons defaults changed, we didn't just change stuff for the fun of it. For starters, vanilla IPython now disallows any superfluous indentation, i.e.
In [1]: 1 Out[1]: 1 In [2]: 1 IndentationError: unexpected indent (<ipython-input-2-0066badbf200>, line 1)

Two more issues:
- when Sage starts, any lines in my init.sage file are echoed to the screen after the first "sage:" prompt. They aren't executed until I hit the return key:
---------------------------------------------------------------------- | Sage Version 5.2, Release Date: 2012-07-25 | | Type "notebook()" for the browser-based notebook interface. | | Type "help()" for help. | ---------------------------------------------------------------------- sage: # Here is the beginning of init.sage. 2+2 # Here is another comment a = 5 # Here is the end of init.sage.
At this point, hitting <RETURN> inserts a 4, a newline, and the "sage:" prompt, anda
is defined to be 5.
- when I evaluate or
plot
a graphics object, two plot windows are opened:sage: P = plot(sin(x), (x, 0, 10)) sage: P # opens up two windows showing the same plot. Note also the blank line. sage: plot(P) # also opens up two windows. sage: show(P) # opens up only one window.

Regarding indentation, autoindent being on breaks sage inside Emacs (dumb terminal). So I think it should be off, at least in a dumb terminal, until/unless I can figure out how to fix this in Emacs. I haven't really looked into it at all, so it may be easy to fix inside Emacs by setting some environment variables or something. See #10504.
comment:92 Changed 9 years ago by
+1 for autoindent being on by default. That helps what is probably the vast majority of the cases---interactively typing into the command line.

I'm having a weird problem when I use IPython.parallel in sage. Here's what happens:
from IPython.parallel import Client rc = Client('/home/seshu/.sage/ipython-new/profile_default/security/ipcontroller-client.json') dview = rc[:] dview.map_sync(lambda x: x**10, range(32)) [0:apply]: --------------------------------------------------------------------------- NameError Traceback (most recent call last)<string> in <module>() <ipython-input-4-ad199b8d76dc> in <lambda>(x) NameError: global name 'Integer' is not defined
If I do anything that doesn't involve integers like dview.map_sync(lambda x: "hi", range(32)), it works fine. Sorry if this isn't the appropriate place to ask these questions. I wasn't sure where to ask since this is a bit bleeding edge. I would like to be able to use IPython.parallel from the sage notebook if possible.
comment:94 Changed 9 years ago by
The ipython engines need to import the sage modules. The fix is dview.execute("from sage.all import *"). Also I did sage -sh ipcluster start.
comment:95 Changed 9 years ago by
Just FYI, for the *next* version (so not an issue on this ticket), https://github.com/ipython/ipython/pull/2299 broke Sage, I think by getting rid of PrefilterTransformer? tricks.
comment:96 Changed 9 years ago by
So I think that the only issue with this ticket is turning back on auto-indentation and getting ?? to show the source code? Any other issues?
I think the parallel issues above should be moved to another ticket.
comment:97 Changed 9 years ago by
Note: ?? shows the source code fine, it seems, in the notebook (at least there doesn't seem to be a regression; ?? shows source when doing tab completion, but not on evaluating, just like before the python upgrade). It is a regression on the command line, though.
comment:98 Changed 9 years ago by
There are the issues I mentioned above. Can anyone else reproduce them?
comment:99 Changed 9 years ago by
The parallel issues only seem to effect the notebook. I've successfully gotten ipython.parallel and sage to run on a small 24 core amazon ec2 cluster, using ssh with the ipython 0.13.1 branch on github. According to the ipython guys, the ssh launcher in 0.13 is broken. I kinda have some idea of whats going with the parallel issues and the notebook as well, but i'm not sure how to fix it. I can write something for how to setup sage with ipython engines started over ssh if this package gets updated to 0.13.1.
comment:100 Changed 9 years ago by
Well, hopefully this gets merged before 0.13.1 comes out.
comment:101 Changed 9 years ago by
jhpalmieri, I can confirm both of the issues that you saw. I'm seeing them too.
comment:102 Changed 9 years ago by

actually, it looks like autoindent was turned back on: http://trac.sagemath.org/sage_trac/ticket/12719#comment:52
comment:104 Changed 9 years ago by
Does anyone know where in the code init.sage is run? I've searched the entire codebase for "init.sage" and I'm not finding anything that looks like it is responsible for running the file.
comment:105 Changed 9 years ago by
Ah, I found it. It's the last line in sage/misc/interpreter.py, the one that says self.shell.run_cell('%%load "%s"'%startup_file)
comment:106 Changed 9 years ago by
Okay, it looks like the problem is that we punt to the ipython load, which *pastes* the content so you can edit it first: http://ipython.org/ipython-doc/dev/interactive/qtconsole.html#load
comment:107 Changed 9 years ago by
So our conclusion on https://github.com/ipython/ipython/pull/2299 was that Sage should make %load an alias for IPython's %run, and beef up IPython's %run to be able to handle remote files. In fact, make IPython's %run use the same simple mechanism as IPython's %load would be great (though may not be possible---%run uses file-specific features in python and execfile, etc.)

Is there a reason we didn't use a profile config file for all of our customizations?
I've started a different approach to the customizations we use here: https://github.com/jasongrout/sage-ipython-profile
put these into the .sage/ipython-new directory and then start with sage -ipython --profile=sage
