It's a pain to import all the Django models you want to use in the Python shell every time you start it. Here's how you can get IPython to autoload all your Django models for you every time you start the shell using ./manage.py shell.
Put the code in a .py file in the root of your project. Then tell IPython to load the script in ~/.ipython/ipythonrc in the "Python files to load and execute" section.
