How to Save Session Variables in IPython?

Estimated read time 1 min read

In IPython, session variables are stored in memory and are lost once you exit the IPython shell. However, you can save your session variables to a file using the dill package. Here are the steps to save your session variables in IPython:

  1. Install the dill package if you haven’t already done so. You can install it using pip by running the following command in your terminal or command prompt:
pip install dill
  1. In IPython, import the dill package by running the following command:
import dill
  1. To save all your session variables to a file, run the following command:
dill.dump_session('session.pkl')

This will save all your session variables to a file called session.pkl in the current directory.

  1. To load your session variables from the saved file, start a new IPython session and run the following command:
dill.load_session('session.pkl')

This will load all your session variables from the saved file into the current IPython session.

Note that when you load your session variables from a file, any existing session variables with the same name will be overwritten. Also, be careful when loading session variables from an external source as they could potentially contain malicious code.
