Share your success (or failure :s ) using Spyder via a Blog Post

Hello everyone

I want to wish a happy new year in advance to all the users, developers and friends out there using, working and helping Spyder be a better tool for scientific research and computing.

As some of you may be aware of, the new Spyder website is on the works and we would like to share and know about your success stories (of... there might be also failures) with using Spyder. The idea is to have contributions from different sectors in science or programming that might illustrate how in your specific case Spyder has made your life easier.

Couple of images, maybe share some code, maybe share some new module you are developing, or maybe just complain on a feature you are missing and have requested already :) 

"Easy way"

Right now the "easiest" way to do this would be to make a pull request against the Spyder website repository

git clone https://github.com/spyder-ide/website.git

Write a new markdown file (yyyy-mm-dd-title-more-in-title.md) and put it inside the 'content/blog' folder

Other way 
If you do not (yet) feel comfortable using Github and Git then you can just copy here your blog post (in markdown please :) )



I personally (and the spyder development team) greatly appreciate any time you are willing to invest into making spyder the number one development environment :)

Kind regards,

Gonzalo

Style analysis (pep8) max line length

Hi,

I'm trying to relax the 79 character line limit. Changed Preferences->Editor->Display->Show vertical line after to 159: still getting warnings like "E501 line too long (120 > 79 characters)". Am I missing something?

Anybody get Spyder for Python 3.4 to work on OS X?

Is this working for anyone?  I'm still having trouble where iPython Console 
keeps hanging saying "Connecting to kernel...".   I've deleted all of my 
Spyder configuration files, so this should be the default setup I believe.

Spyder 2.3.2 from Anaconda is remarkably slower than Spyder 2.3.1

Hi guys:

I downloaded Python through Anaconda 2.1.0, which comes with Spyder 2.3.1.  The startup time as well as exit time from Spyder is normal.  However, when I updated Spyder to 2.3.2, I notice that the startup and exit time is remarkably more than before.

Is there any bug in the Spyder 2.3.2 version?  My machine is Windows 7 (64-bit) home edition.  For comparison, I kept everything else the same.

Thanks,
Srini

Spyder can't import cv [opencv]

Hi,

Basic problem: Spyder-Py2 2.3.3 running can't import cv (commonly known as opencv). When I attempt to "import cv" (or cv2) in a python console, the console doesn't throw an error but just becomes unresponsive. When I attempt to "import cv" in the ipython console, I get 
"It seems the kernel died unexpectedly. Use 'Restart kernel' to continue using this console."
repeatedly.

Please note this is after I have added /usr/local/Cellar/opencv/2.4.9/lib/python2.7/site-packages to PYTHONPATH using PYTHONPATH manager. If I don't do that, the error simply says the module isn't recognized.

However, in the terminal (OSX 10.9.4) I am able to import cv and use it just fine. Spyder was installed as a .dmg and opencv was installed using Homebrew. Each has been installed and reinstalled a number of times so the order of installation is probably not the problem.

I am pretty sure that terminal and Spyder are using different python sources. In the terminal, "which python" returns /usr/local/bin/python. However, by inspecting sys.version and sys.maxint, you can see both are Python 2.7.8 and 64bit.

The only difference I can find is that in the terminal I get:

[GCC 4.2.1 Compatible Apple LLVM 5.1 (clang-503.0.40)] on darwin

Whereas in spyder I get 

'2.7.8 (default, Aug 15 2014, 13:43:01) \n[GCC 4.2.1 Compatible Apple Clang 3.1 (tags/Apple/clang-318.0.61)]'

when i use sys.version.

Please. Any help would be very much appreciated.
Chris

Spyder not recognizing splinter

Though splinter is installed on my Windows Vista, spyder gives an error when I import it.

  • When I import in windows command prompt, it successfully imports & also shows path to the init file.
  • Have added explicit path in PYTHONPATH Manager of Spyder and Updated module list. Yet, did not help.
  • Have checked my PATH environment variable. It contains the path to Python, Python/Scripts & Python/Lib/site-packages. PATH contains no spaces and PATH is indeed named as PATH & not as Path (probably thats why able to import successfully via command prompt)
  • When I try to install splinter again (just to confirm if it exists or not), pip says it already exists. When I try to upgrade, pip says it is already up-to-date
  • Have read lots & lots of articles on stackoverflow, Google Groups & across the web, but no solution helped.
  • Spyder recognizes other packages like os, numpy, etc.

Had run this code successfully on a temporary testing machine. Now trying to run on my system and its failing with error ImportError: No module named 'splinter'

Python ver. 3.4; Spyder ver. 3.4

Hoping for a solution...

Complete trackeback:

runfile('E:/Rampy/DS/Python/Code/AGMARK.py', wdir='E:/Rampy/DS/Python/Code') Traceback (most recent call last):

New Spyder Website: brainstorming

Hello again users and devs from around the globe :)

So now that the move to github is imminent (Carlos is pushing all the pending PR's :p ), I want to step up and continue with the outreach plan which consists in having a dedicated spyder website, that hopefully will look better than the actual google code site :).

So first of all, any volunteers with a better background in web design? I have basic notions and I have built a couple of sites (static HTML, old and plain php, and django-cms recently).

I would like to use this thread to get some consensus or ideas on what you would like or think the site should be:

1.) built on?
What technologies would we like to implement/use? static website (pelican...) or with a css framework (bootstrap), with a CMS (django-cms..?). Would we need blogging as well? or we keep using the actual blog. Are we interesting in getting some emails? like, support-bIOoRHpR5jH2JYTphGNI2Q@public.gmane.org  ... or info-bIOoRHpR5jHNPgQiy46dww@public.gmane.org .... etc?  (By the way, I already own http://www.spyder-ide.org, yes it is still blank but hopefully that will change pretty soon!)

2.) look like?
There was some small talk before on the look, Carlos suggested something in the lines of: http://brackets.io/

Looking forward to hear your comments and ideas.

Merge two plot from two different programs.

Recently I am working on Prediction work and that involves 2 different algorithms. Both gives the line line plot of predicted and original data. There is a interesting feature in spyder that if I keep the plotting window open both the plots gets appended which I actually wants. But the problem comes in the Legends, the new run programs overrides the legends of the previous programs plot.

How can I plot the original data, prediction data from program 1 and prediction data from program 2 which must have the Legends along with it in a single plot?

PyQt5 Support

Hi Everyone,

I have added PyQt5 support to Spyder (keeping the  PyQt4 and PySide support).

It has been tested for Python 2/ Python 3 and PyQt4/PyQt5.

What I have: Using SourceTree I cloned a recent default, added code changes, tested it, created a new local branch and committed the changes into it.

In case of need for a PyQt5 version I would appreciate if someone could summarize what should be the steps to submit it for code review. I am new to SourceTree, Bitbucket and Git, know the basics though.


Sandor

Spyder requires Jinja 2 when installing through conda?

Hi guys 

In order to make some tests on python 3 of some features I am working on spyder, I installed spyder (through conda) on a freshly created conda environment running python 3.

When running 'python bootstrap.py' I got a jinja2 module not installed. Should this be included in the dependencies of conda?

(I am running ubutnu14.04  64)

Cheers

Is Spyder debug broken

I hadn't had to use the debug functionality inside Spyder for quite a while.  Today when I tried to debug, Spyder pops up an open file dialog.  Also, every time I type s, c, or whatever into the running debugger terminal Spyder pops up another open file dialog.  I am on the most recent commit from https://bitbucket.org/spyder-ide/spyderlib.  Has nobody else seen this problem?
