plutoid - a Python micro kernel

plutoid is a light-weight Python kernel. It's useful for embedding Python code execution capabilities in different environments. It borrows heavily from ipython. In fact, the first version of ipython may have looked something like this.

If you are building a programming education app that provides code execution capabilities, you'll find plutoid is a lightweight alternative to ipython.

Unlike ipython, plutoid is a library module. It does not provide a shell or any IPC mechanisms. It's main purpose is to capture stdout, stderr and matplotlib graphs and route them using blinker signals. It needs to be embedded in an application to be useful.
