Note that if you do this only and don't use %pylab interactively or
the --pylab flag, then you will *not* get the proper non-blocking
control of the matplotlib event loop integrated with the terminal or
In summary, following Tony's suggestion is enough to give you:
- event loop integration when you do --pylab at the prompt or %pylab in ipython.
- the np, mpl and plt shortcuts
- no 'import *' at all.
So that should be sufficient, but you should still use --pylab or
%pylab to indicate to IPython that you want the mpl event loops to
work in conjunction with the shell.
