Estimated read time 1 min read

To clear the console in Python REPL (Read-Eval-Print Loop), you can use the os module along with platform-specific commands. However, the specific approach may vary depending on the REPL you are using.

Here are a few methods that may work with different Python REPLs:

  1. Using the os module and platform-specific commands:
import os

def clear_console():
    os.system('cls' if os.name == 'nt' else 'clear')

# Call the function to clear the console
clear_console()
  1. Using the IPython module (if you are using IPython REPL):
from IPython.display import clear_output

# Call the function to clear the console
clear_output(wait=True)
  1. Using the bpython module (if you are using bpython REPL):
import bpython

# Call the function to clear the console
bpython.clear_screen()

These methods should help you clear the console in the respective Python REPLs. Keep in mind that the effectiveness of these methods may depend on the specific REPL and terminal you are using.
