IPython newlines with ^V^J


If you're having trouble adding newlines in the middle of a multiline code block in IPython, try using Ctrl-V Ctrl-J to insert a linebreak at the cursor. It will not execute the code block like hitting Enter will.

Also, navigating a multiline code block is faster with Escape-B and Escape-F (skip word backward/forward).

If you haven't tried IPython at all yet, it's a nicer command line interface for Python with better command history and line editing features. Just "pip install ipython".

    How did you find this out? What other secrets are hiding?
