    This application reminds me of a simpler, more focused interactive version of a worksheet in Mathcad.

    I used it for exploring random process generation in scipy and enjoyed seeing the plots update after changing a variable somewhere. Functionally, this isn't much different from the "change code in editor"->"hit shortcut key to run script" work-flow, but it feels better, and you don't have to shut all the plot-windows after every time you run.

    Other nice features are the auto-correct and the automatic documentation that pops up as soon as you type a function in the document.

    Cons:
    There could be more functionality / features. The hard part seems to be already done - the developers could add workspace windows, export to PDF, or make stand-alone .py(w) files.

    Note:
    If you're plotting using matplotlib/pylab, you should include a "from replot import plot" to get inline reinteract plotting working properly.

    Extremely useful, mostly because sessions/investigations can be saved. I put my worksheets in my Ubuntu One folder, and they are available at any PC! Great work.
