This snippet is reserved for users of the KDE linux desktop. It adds a service menu to kde applications such as dolphin and konqueror, to launch an ipython dashboard in a directory in one click.
More specifically, save the text of this snippet as a file
~/.kde/share/kde4/services/ServiceMenus/opennotebook.desktop (create the directory if necessary). Make sure ipython is installed. You may prefer an install via
sudo pip install ipython over your distribution's ipython-notebook package (I experienced issues with ipython older than 1.1.0).
Then open dolphin and right-click a directory. In the Actions submenu, there should be an entry
Start Notebook. Upon clicking this entry, a konsole tab opens which runs an ipython notebook. A web page appears in the default web browser which is the ipython dashboard for notebooks stored in this directory. We are ready to use python comfortably in 2 clicks !
I use this service menu every day, and it is very handy. I hope you'll enjoy it.
