How I setup my IPython/c9 development environment
# I like to set up a ssh workspace for terminal access and editing files.
# In order to do that it's necessairy to install a recent version of node.js
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:chris-lea/node.js
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install -y gcc g++ make nodejs git

curl | bash
# You will also need to add your c9 key to .ssh/authorized_keys
# Python setup
sudo apt-get install -y python python-software-properties python-zmq python-setuptools python-pip
# Install IPython and its deps
sudo pip install ipython[all] jinja2 tornado
# Other python libs that might be used by code I've recently worked on.
sudo pip install readability-lxml pyyaml cssselect futures
sudo pip install beautifulsoup4 unicodecsv goose-extractor pymongo rdflib
sudo apt-get install -y libxml2-dev libxslt1-dev python-dev python-lxml
sudo apt-get install gfortran libopenblas-dev liblapack-dev

sudo pip install scipy scikit-learn numpy nltk pattern
