Is it possible to specify values for a List traitlet on the command line?
Or can they only be configured through a config file?

@jhamrick I think you can specify on the command line if you get the quoting right
something like ipython "--Foo.bar=[1, 2, 3]" maybe
or ipython --Foo.bar "[1, 2, 3]"
I know we've had problems with strings getting evaled when people really wanted the string before...

@takluyver Yeah, I eventually figured it out trying a few different ways of quoting it
Thanks!

https://github.com/jdfreder/pingjs in case we ever need to let the notebook ping things. Maybe remote kernels ( @rgbkrk ) ?
