Lately I fell in love with Python and its easy capability of interfacing with DLLs. Yet so far I always relied on using MATLAB for generating reports and plots for our papers. My good old friend Dawid pointed out I could just use iPython to do the plotting for me. Removing the middle man (i.e. MATLAB) would also be beneficial since our University’s license will expire in 3 days 🙁
The only issue I’ve had with getting iPython going in PyCharm (my preferred Python IDE) was that it just would not start the Kernel. IPython natively installs when deploying Anaconda and should just work when making a notebook. But it doesn’t. Here I will go through how I managed to “fix” this and have my notebooks run beautifully in PyCharm.
