General usage instructions

Installation : the easiest way to install is through pycharm builtin plugin search, accessible through Pycharm->Preferences->Plugin (and then search for "cell mode")

This provides actions to execute a python "cell" in PyCharm. A cell is delimited by ##, for example :

print 'foo'
if True:
    print 'bar'
This plugin provides 3 actions under the Code menu. You can assign keyboard shortcuts to each:
  • Run Cell
  • Run Cell and go to next
  • Run Line under the caret
The cell can be sent to either :
  • the internal ipython console
  • an external ipython running in a tmux
Option 2. allows you to have a working interactive matplotlib in an external ipython process. Check the "Python Cell Mode" settings in the preferences to switch between the two modes.
