Loader and Writer, IPython nbextensions to easily edit your text.

Coming back to the nice practice of release my own IPython nbextensions, today I will release two extensions I use a lot in my daily workflow: loader and writer, useful extensions to load files into the IPython notebook and to write the content to the same (or another) file.

Slideviewer: a simple way to share your IPython slides

Short Notice:

After some months of silence, I am back... A lot of things have happened in my life lately, some of them are really good things... some others don't. And all those things kept me very busy, but finally I have made me some time to write again! ;-)

OK, I have a long list of news, topics, ideas and developments I want to share with you, but we have to begin with one of them, and the chosen one is Slideviewer.

My IPython-powered semi-automatic git workflow

This is the last post of this year, so I try to do my best to give you something interesting to think about...

In this case, I will show you my git workflow... and you know there are a lot of workflows out there... and probably better than mine, but I just want to share with you the place where I find myself comfortable.

And yes... my git workflow is also powered by IPython (I am very repetitive when I love a project!). And it is a semi-automatic one, using the IPython notebooks (ipynbs) as a sort of templates, transforming them into a new conceptual entity: the ipytmpl (and yes, I love to invent names too!).

Deploy your Nikola-powered blog content from the IPython notebook

Following the idea to release all the extensions I had working on in the last few weeks/months, today I will release an old but very useful IPython notebook extension for people blogging with Nikola: the nikola_deploy extension.

A 'poor man' spell checker for the IPython notebook

OK, today I will release another IPython js extension: Spellchecker, which obviously do what you are thinking... spell check the content of your IPython notebook cells.

And why it is a poor man extension? Because it is a simple workaround to get the spell checker functionality and not a broad solution... but it works, and solve my spelling problems!

Tweet me... said an IPython notebook cell and I did it

It is time to release some extensions I wrote the last weeks. And because it is Friday, and it is a great moment to begin with the "relax" and procrastination, I will release the tweet me extension...

Don't write scripts, just write ipyscripts!

I usually have some repetitive tasks in my daily work-flow. You probably have some of those too. To save some minutes from your day, you probably write little scripts to do these jobs.

I used to do that... but now I am only writing little IPython notebooks to do these simple jobs, I call them ipyscripts (yes, I won a prize for originality, he he!).

These ipyscripts are IPython-powered, so we can use all the IPython's machinery to do complex things in a simple way...

Trading logbook update: 22-Nov-2013

OK, logging my trades in the forex market, as I promised in the last post.

FYI, I am a daily trader, so you will see me holding positions over several days. Last week, I performed some real account trades accordingly to my models, opening positions at several currencies pairs. You can see the detailed information in the table below:

Live trading logbook

After some weeks of silence, he he... I come back with a short post about live trading in the forex market. As you probably know [if not, you are knowing it right now ;-)], one of my interests is the analysis, modeling and forecasting of financial time series. To make it short, I have developed some statistical models to forecast the dynamic of selected portfolios. Currently, I am trading equities and other more complex financial derivatives. But my models are also suitable to apply to other markets, ie. the foreign exchange market (yes... forex). So, I made a quick research on some interesting forex pairs and then I started a little account to perform some live trades accordingly to these models. And now, I pretend to log the trades from this little account in a subset of post on my blog, a sort of public live trading logbook.

OK, we can start the logging right now! I opened two short positions some days ago:
