I'm trying to make EIN work within Emacs, but right now (with IPython 2) it seems that it's not possible. This errors arise:
REQUEST [error] Error from parser ein:json-read: (json-readtable-error) ein: [error] Error (parse-error) while opening notebook list at the server 8888.
But while trying to solve this problem I started to wonder if there is really any advantage of using the notebook over an IPython shell with all the added functionality that Emacs gives.
So the question is: which are the advantages of using EIN over the IPython shell inside Emacs? Is there a way to save an IPython session to a file?
