ipython is an interactive Python shell which is generally great with its history and autocompletion, but has one annoying problem. Whenever you hit Ctrl-D to exit from ipython to bash, it asks you this question:
Do you really want to exit ([y]/n)?
Perhaps this prompt would be useful if I were using it to control an atomic power plant in emergency mode, but for my humble needs it's just annoying. It's easy to disable it - create a file called
~/.ipython/profile_default/ipython_config.py with the following content.
c = get_config() c.InteractiveShell.confirm_exit = False
