# matplotlib.ion mode

Instead, why not just use their frontends and plt.ion()? Unix + tiling WM is truly a system-wide IDE, but I never learned the “old” tooling for working with matplotlib at the cli.

The first time I learned matplotlib I learned it in a notebook. Now that I’m wedded to tiling & strongly prefer the terminal ipython to the notebook, I’ve gotta learn all the older tooling for matplotlib.
