Fix: NameError: name IPython is not defined

IPython in Python is an interactive shell that provides features that are outside the standard Python interpreter.

If you try to make use of such features in your Python code without having the IPython module installed you will get an error "NameError: name IPython is not defined"

>>> IPython.display.display("Test");

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>

NameError: name 'IPython' is not defined
NameError- name iPython is not defined


First make sure if IPyhton or IPython3 is installed on your device.

pip show IPyhton

If it is not then you can get it installed using pip install command.

pip install IPython


pip install IPython3
