"Spyder - the Scientific PYthon Development EnviRonment"

What do you like best?

It is free and opensource. It has a powerful auto-completion. It has variable explorer tab which help you to see values of all variables used in code. Github binding is good .it has cross platform support - Linux, Mac, and Windows10.

What do you dislike?

Very slow in all platforms especially in windows 10. Takes some time to startup.It consumes lot of memory.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are machine learning and artificial enthusiast go for spyder IDE. it is not for web application development using python. It is very helpful in plotting graphs for visualization of data inside console. If you are completely new to python and want to learn python start with this IDE.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have done projects related to Machine learning and Artificial Intelligence and completed assignments in python using python. It is very useful for the machine learning tasks and data visualization tasks.

"One of the best Python IDE"

What do you like best?

It is simple yet with so much functionality. It does not take up more ram space but does the work fine. I usually prefer it for simple programs and not any big projects

What do you dislike?

There is nothing much to dislike about it, it is simple and easy to use. But I usually don't prefer this for big projects.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are new to python programming and want a IDE, then just go for it. It is the best one out there

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am using this for python programs. As I have mentioned above it is one of the best IDE's over the market for python programming and it is present in anaconda version so it gets fast and easy updates

"Using Spyder Experience"

What do you like best?

Best using spider as educating the students, almost every facility whatever is needed for teaching is available which make teaching environment healthy and digestible to learners like viewing variables, values, code, file exploration, project settings, program output, interactive output like ipython within the consoles, etc. In short i will say that its very good IDE for working with Python, very friendly working environment, all aspects are covered in a simple way, feel you relaxed while working in highly complex languages e.g.: Python, etc.

What do you dislike?

Once you change your machine then it seems difficult to export each and everything seamlessly form one machine to another is missing which obviously needed to add value regarding portability, similarly visualization component should be the part of the same product unlike separate tools such as glue, etc., and on the other hand it take much time to load in memory. Debugging which is extremely difficult in python should be intelligently handled to make this more effective.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Highly recommend because its very good and suits the required support needed

"Best IDE for Python"

What do you like best?

I really like the interface. It provides both the usual IDE where one can code and run whole at once as well as the interactive one and the best thing is the variables are shared which makes debugging easy and comfortable.

Also there are various setting we can use the personalize the run time. For example there is a option where we can plot the graphs inline, which means no other window will pop-up but everything will be visible in the console.

What do you dislike?

I prefer only and only spyder IDE for my python coding and am happy that I have never tried any other IDE. Happy with the experience would continue using it. No Dislikes!

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is much easy to install wen compared to other IDE. A simple pip command will do. It is much more interactive and provides various functionalities which others don't. I recommend everyone to use it, I bet you won't switch!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

A developer always need a IDE to code and debug it. We at Easesolutions Pvt. Ltd. have to work so much on python as we are more involved in Data Science. Most of the developers use it. As it is easy to install (only a pip command) and more comfortable to use than other IDEs.

I have heard and even experienced that it is the best IDE for Data Science.

"One stop-shop for all things Python!"

What do you like best?

Everything is great about Spyder! To sum up in points:

1. Simple UI - Everything is available at your fingertips and is exactly where you would want it to be.

2. Instant console - See your project take shape live as you code! This is extremely helpful during long debugging sessions.

3. Ease of use for beginners - Even a beginner to Python coding would immediately get used to how easy the platform is.

4. Project management- It is very easy to maintain projects with multiple files and file types (.py, .jpj, .html, etc)

5. Ten points to Gryffindor ! for the amazing iPyhton integration

What do you dislike?

The only thing I dislike about Spyder is the load time in the beginning. It simply takes forever, often leading me to doubt whether my own computer has frozen (and my computer is pretty powerful).

However, this might just be an issue with my system.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you don't already, just try it, you probably won't switch back.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use Spyder to develop and test code snippets for various projects within the organization that are built in Python.

"A great tool to run your python files"

What do you like best?

1. Ease of running scripts and visualising the output all on one screen.

2. Being part of the anaconda UI, user doesnt have to explicitly download spyder again.

What do you dislike?

1. Spyder UI varies slightly for WIndows and Mac users. A person accustomed to a windows machine would find it hard to navigate in mac sypder. For example, the file explorer option is a feature available explicitly for Windows user.

2. I am not a fan of the spyder workspace as it allows limited visual aid to read how the data gets manipulated. Frankly speaking i am still trying to still get use to the Spyder UI.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Great tool to run and develop your python code.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Spyder comes as part of the anaconda app, and is mainly used by users to develop and run the python scripts.

"A complete IDE for programming in python"

What do you like best?

Spyder is a very powerful Interface Development Environment (IDE) for programming using python. I use spyder inside anaconda for my projects. Spyder offers me an easy to use tool for my programs. I like the interface for editing programs, because: (1) it provides a big area for code, (2) it highlights different kinds of words such as reserved words, functions, comments, etc. (3) shows both syntax errors and warnings, etc.

What do you dislike?

I do not like the fact that spyder does not show, by default, all the functions available in your own code. As a consequence, you have to search for the different functions by yourself. For example, it is not obvious how to use the debugger. Once you discover how to use it, it is powerful tool.

On the other hand, I do not like the usage of memory of spyder. Spyder consumes lots of memory. In fact, you may have to reboot spyder in order to free some memory (even though you have collected not used memory).

Usage of memory.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you already have some experience using other Interface Development Environments, you may not have too much problems using spyder. However, I recommend you to follow some quick tutorials about the different features and posssiblitites. Besides, I recommend to have enough RAM memory when using spyder, because it uses a lot of memory. If you notice that your computer is getting slower, you should reboot spyder (it sometimes does not work to collect non used memory).

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I write all my python programs using spyder. It permits me to write fast code, as well as to test some commands using the terminal included in Spyder.

"Great IDE for Python programming"

What do you like best?

Spyder IDE is specially built for python programming for data analysis. It can integrate with many python libraries for data analysis and fitting the data to machine learning models. This IDE helps me write the code on the editor and simultaneously see the result on the console. Visualizing results is great. It also has variable explore where you get the clear picture of variables, its values, and their types.

What do you dislike?

Line by line execution is difficult when compared to other IDE.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This tool helps me write all my python scripts on the editor and see the results right on the console. User-friendly because of its GUI

"Very comprehensive python IDE"

What do you like best?

The integrated nature of the python interpreter with the editor is great. I also like that you can get help on various functions at the click of a button.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes when working with graphics the UI does not render images at all. I found this true when working with Tkinter.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is a great software IDE that is worth using.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am writing UI applications and also prototyping ideas. Often I use it in conjunction with Anaconda python (it comes distributed with Anaconda) to test out models for improving our automation process.

"Scientific development in Python"

What do you like best?

The ide is a standard in the domain of scientific computing. It comes preinstalled with numerical processing package for python- anaconda. The ide has almost all the tools one could ask for scientific computing. It comes with a ipython like environment on the side. The graphs can be displayed in line which is a huge bonus if you aren't a fan of multiple tabs.

What do you dislike?

The buttons and interfaces might look a bit outdated given the current trends in ui design. But one needs to give credit that it's open sourced. Further, it would be great to see an integration of a Matlab like processing tool ( octave in this instance) with the python environment to enable a truly cross platform , cross software scientific computing environment.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Working on developing tools for processing slices during 3d printing. Worked on multiple open source projects for extending fea tools.

"I am satisfied with the spyder."

What do you like best?

I think spyder is the best tool for data science project. I use it for training my network. Its come default with anaconda. So, installing packages are easy. Light tool and easy, user-friendly. That's why I recommend using it for data science projects.

What do you dislike?

During long training session sometime it crashes. Debugging could have been better. And should have an option to run multiple scripts at the same time. Loading is also an issue. Though this cons I still like them too and use it for regular purposes.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The best tool for data science projects. You should try,

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am using this tool to train a convolutional neural network to classify images. This is part of my current research work. Benefits are already mentioned in the first section - easy to manage third-party packages, user-friendly, best-suited for data science project.

What do you like best?

It lets you efficiently manage your code, view runtime variables, manage multiple files and plot graphs. The best thing is you can run portions of your code.

What do you dislike?

The Intellisence is not state of the art and most of the times you end up writing the whole function and variable names

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would definitely recommend using spyder if you are planning on developing in python. It's an incredible IDE and meets all the requirements.

"Would Recommend, Coming From A Beginner"

What do you like best?

I love how when there is an error in your code it directly tells you which exact line it is. It limits the frustration of trying to figure it out.

What do you dislike?

I however don't like that it won't specify the type of error it is. However for an experienced programer that shouldn't be much of an issue.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is a pretty great program and easier to use than a lot of other softwares. Also there is quite a bit of additional online resources to better help adjusting to it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Was able to create and run coding with little to no issue.

I like the variable explorer on the right side of the IDE. It provides detailed inforamtion such as data type, dimension. This makes devloping complicated code involing image processing and analysis much easier as I am able to keep track of all the variables.

What do you dislike?

The lack of community support may be problematic

The intellisense function is sometime unstable.

Remote editting can be more polished.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is a great IDE for scientific program developers.

"Extremely useful product "

What do you like best?

Without a doubt, this is the best IDE for python out there. This is especially true if you use Python for data analysis. This product reminds me a lot of MATLAB, but it is free and slightly more user friendly.

What do you dislike?

One drawback for this amazing product is having to download the Anaconda environment to use Spyder. The IDE can also work a bit slowly sometimes even on high-end machines (this can also partly be attributed to Python).

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use this product write scripts that analyze terabytes of data.

"Spyder helps students learn to code in python"

What do you like best?

It is an IDE so does not require running the code in another window (like terminal). It's pretty easy to navigate for new users.

What do you dislike?

It is very slow to start up (especially on mac), and has a lot more features than you really need. It could be simplified greatly. It can crash intermittently.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Better to use if you have a Windows PC

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Teaching beginner programming students to code. I have realized that it is much easier for students to learn coding in an IDE, because learning a new text editor + how to run your code somewhere else can be daunting at first.
