    • A landmark file could be added to scripted module folder (slicer.json or slicer-module.json)
    • This landmark file could then be used to speedup the startup time by loading only the core scripted module.
  • CLI and loadable module infrastructure improvement
    • Similarly to scripted module, the Slicer module loader could look for a landmark file
  • Python interactor improvement
    • Would be nice to have history, support for CTRL-A and CTRL-R

    • Instead trying to integrate IPython would provide us with a lot.
      • Some work to integrate ctkPythonConsole and IPython has been started last year (See QEmbedIPython)
    • Could also look at javascript implementation of console (Steve: Could you edit and add reference ?)
