IPython vs Jupyter: What are the differences?

Developers describe IPython as "A command shell for interactive computing in multiple programming languages". It provides a rich architecture for interactive computing with a powerful interactive shell, a kernel for Jupyter. It has a support for interactive data visualization and use of GUI toolkits Flexible, embeddable interpreters to load into your own projects. Easy to use, high performance tools for parallel computing. . On the other hand, Jupyter is detailed as "Multi-language interactive computing environments". The Jupyter Notebook is a web-based interactive computing platform. The notebook combines live code, equations, narrative text, visualizations, interactive dashboards and other media.

IPython can be classified as a tool in the "Shells" category, while Jupyter is grouped under "Data Science Notebooks".

Jupyter is an open source tool with 6.12K GitHub stars and 2.58K GitHub forks. Here's a link to Jupyter's open source repository on GitHub.
