IPython install

I have found the IPython command-shell particularly useful. It’s very well done, and has excellent documentation. Problem is, it doesn’t work so well on Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard. Your screen gets scrogged because of a Readline conflict (see the video). Here’s my cookbook for getting it to work – it’s way easier than all the other documents on the Internet lead you to believe.
  1. Installing IPython on Mac OS X is actually quite easy with the following command:
    sudo easy_install ipython
  2. Execute the command to load the right Readline library:
    sudo easy_install -f http://ipython.scipy.org/dist/ readline
