Install IPython notebook in Ubuntu 12.04

leave a comment »

IPython allows for the use of Python in a way that is interactive (similar to matlab or mathematica), allowing for the creation of nice tutorials and examples — really I am talking about the html notebooks. In Ubuntu 12.04, the install should be simple (I will not install from source), using the repository version to find all dependencies:

sudo apt-get install ipython-notebook

To start an html-notebook session with inline graphics, use

ipython notebook --pylab inline
