If you have programmed in Python, perhaps you would know IPython.
IPython is an interactive shell for python programming.
In the terminal (Ctrl+Alt+T), run the command line
$ sudo apt-get install -y ipython ipython-notebook
and after entering your sudo password, IPython will be installed.
In the terminal, launch the command
and you will have you session running.
More about IPython in a next post!!! (specially about the notebook) 😉
Cheers, and enjoy life!
