Is there a good succinct guide to how to figure out which Python environment you're in and how to install stuff in the right environment that's suitable for beginners? cc @jakevdp (also if there's not Jake, can you write one ;)


pip_magic: use pip from within IPython/Notebook and it install in same env you're in.


That looks great, but also lacks a write-up explaining the problem ;)


Can I embed your tweet in the readme ?


Lol sure. Though it does expose me as the naysayer that I am ;) (and my tendency to complain on Twitter but not do anything productive lol)
