Been using the safe and easy confines of PyCharm for a bit now, but I'm trying to get more familiar with using a text editor and the terminal together, so I've forced myself to start using iPython Notebook and Emacs. Aaaaand I have some really dumb questions.
after firing up ipython notebook from terminal with the command 'ipython notebook', it pops up on my browser and lets me code. but can i not use terminal while it's connected to ipython notebook server?
after writing my code in ipython notebook, i'm left with a something.ipynb file. How do I run this file from terminal? If it was a .py file, i know i could execute it by tying python something.py from the command line; but it doesn't work if i type python something.ipynb in the command line. And of course, I assume I hit Control-C to quit out of the running server in terminal first? or do I run the command without quitting that? Or am i doomed to test it in iPython and then copy and paste it to a different txt editor like Emacs and save it in a .py file to run it?
what good is the .ipynb file if i can't run it in terminal or outside the iPython Notebook browser? Could I get my code in a .py from iPython Notebook if I wanted to? (i assume I'll be able to easily run it in terminal by tying something.py then)
thanks in advance. I'm still very much trying to figure out how to use this thing and there aren't many answers out there for questions this elementary.
