IPythpn notebook inline graphics

This is yet another reference for myself.

In order to activate inline grafics, it usually recomended to call
%pylab inline
However, according to the documentation [1], this command makes a lot of imports:
import numpy
import matplotlib
from matplotlib import pylab, mlab, pyplot
np = numpy
plt = pyplot

from IPython.display import display
from IPython.core.pylabtools import figsize, getfigs

from pylab import *
from numpy import *
I found this light-weight substitution on the Internet [ 2] and use since:
%matplotlib inline
import matplotlib
import numpy as np
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
or [3]
import numpy as np
import pandas as pd
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
%matplotlib inline
