python.el there is a command
(python-shell-switch-to-shell) that opens an ipython shell.
Problem is, it first asks me where to start the REPL and then whether to make a dedicated process. I always answer
y. Is there a way to send these signals to emacs automatically?
(I know there are other workarounds, but modifying the
python layer in spacemacs is probably too much of a bother.)
