This documentation covers IPython versions 6.0 and higher. Beginning with version 6.0, IPython stopped supporting compatibility with Python versions lower than 3.3 including all versions of Python 2.7.

If you are looking for an IPython version compatible with Python 2.7, please use the IPython 5.x LTS release and refer to its documentation (LTS is the long term support release).

Bases: Warning

A warning to show when a module has moved, and a shim is in its place.

class IPython.utils.shimmodule.ShimImporter(src, mirror)

Bases: object

Import hook for a shim.

This ensures that submodule imports return the real target module, not a clone that will confuse is and isinstance checks.

__init__(src, mirror)

Initialize self. See help(type(self)) for accurate signature.

find_module(fullname, path=None)

Return self if we should be used to import the module.


Import the mirrored module, and insert it into sys.modules

class IPython.utils.shimmodule.ShimModule(*args, **kwargs)
