I really love how Rstudio has a shortcut for running a line of selected code, this allows for much quicker coding. I notice more and more however, that I need to work in python as it offers a bit more flexibility than R.

I prefer to code python in sublime text 2 and it is very flexible but right now I am copying and pasting code constantly in iPython using the %paste command. Does anybody know of a simple way to add such a feature to sublime text? I have looked at some github projects (like but they do not really offer a substantial startup guide.

The solution for now seems to switch to lighttable. Which seems to have this impressive functionality for ipython AND for javascript.
