ipython -wthread vs. ipython -pylab

Discussion in 'Python' started by Wolfram Brenig, Sep 12, 2011.

  1. Hi,

    I have a problem with the ipython shell: frequently, within one session
    I would like to do 2D plotting, using matplotlib, as well as 3D
    visualization using mayavi

    The man page for ipython, matplotlib, and mayavi tell me, that I must
    invoke ipython with
    ipython -wthread for mayavi and
    ipython -pylab for matplotlib
    in order to avoid blocking (which indeed happens if I don't
    use those options).
    However, ipython's manpage also states, that only one of -wthread or
    -pylab can be given?

    Does that imply I have to get out of the shell each time I want to
    switch from matplotlib to mayavi usage? Most likely no. But what should
    I do?

    Thanks for your help
