What do you like best?

Its and open source GUI tool for programing. Its very much helpful for a programmer to write a source code with a lot of functionality using this IDE. Its very much easy to debugger and find errors in the code. You can directly use the libraries installed on you machine with a simple import module. You can also execute your code line by line. The best part of the IDE is that the error is displayed before execution. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

When ever you try to execute the a source code which requires lot of computation and processing power(GPU) the Kernal keeps on crashing and its very much difficult to execute the application during this time. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

The conflict of using multiple version of same library and modules can easily be solved by just creating a different environment for a different project. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

It had most of the necessary modules at the time of installment. It gets frequent update, can be associated to Kite and has vast different view options. Easy to use and variety of library installed are best. Using anaconda, its easy to create and work on different virtual environments. No further extensions needs to be installed as in PyCharm and VScode. The best ide to work with databases, django and machine learning. Working in matlab and numpy is fluid using it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I must be associated to anaconda for ease, else to configure it is a difficult task indeed. It makes my system scream as my pc is low in spec. Program often crashed and takes huge time to load at first. It can't be configured for other programming languages like VS Code does. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

Being a programmer, I often work on databases and web frameworks associated with python. Besides I am also learning neural networks to utilize my free time. I found it the best option for my purposes. I mostly work in python. It is easy to hover over the IDE, files. I literally get everything needed for python using spyder.

What do you like best?

An interface is simple and easy to use. we can see the folder list on the left side of ide for navigation. we can easily install a library from anaconda prompt. It suggests the code by tapping the tab key. We can know the error while writing the code before the running. We can know the lines of code and also see the memory used by over code at the bottom right corner. If we want to run a particular part of the program then we can run it easily that can be used for finding the error. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It takes a long time to run an IDE. Sometime we can't know the error in code. It takes too much time for running high GPU code. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Perfect IDE for python development. One of the reasons I prefer spyder is its easy installation as compared to other python IDEs. I just use it with the anaconda navigator, so I don't have to worry about setting paths. The graphing tools are great for data analysis models and it's great for scientific development. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I think it is limited in its scope for the audience. I definitely think this is a better tool for data scientists as opposed to general python developers, because it is quite heavy on the memory too. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I would recommend python developers to use spyder as a part of anaconda package. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

Its data mining support and the fact that it is on many linux distributions make it the perfect choice for me to use it for computer vision and data analysis related research. The help function in spyder will be your friend! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Spyder is one of the best Python. Here are some feature about Spyder that i like:

1. Inbuilt IPython console which helps experimenting with the output of the script.

2. Plot graphs and export it in different formats. Even you can make changes to graph and see the changes in real tie.

3. You can running multiple scripts in a single page explicitly. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Spyder is best real time analysis IDE but it still cannot stood up to VSCode and Pycharm. Debugging in Pycharm or VSCode is lot more easier and have various debugging options which we lacks in Spyder. A part from that Spyder is great IDE for stand alone works but developing an application just by Spyder is still a dream. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Spyder is great for Data Analysis as you can do real time changes and see the changes at that time it self. I highly recommend spyder to all who use python. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Spyder is No. 1 Python IDE when it comes to learning, it provide minimal suggestion so that you have to memorize important things and its user interface is easy to understand. These are some points why i support Spyder:

1. IPython : Spyder has inbuilt IPython run environment (Command Line) which helps to enter commands or use the output of your code.

2. Variable explorer is also useful which tells you everything from type, size and its value.

3. Analyzing plotted graph is very easy as you can zoom in any particular spot in the graph and analyze that. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

These are some points which i dislike about Spyder other than it is best :-

1. Poor debugging functionality, compare to other IDE's.

2. Not flexible for other languages.

3. Project Structure, file management system is not up to mark.

4. At higher resolution spyder some time lose its edge. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Spyder is best suited for data analysis and good for entry level programmers to learn python in it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Spyder stands out of other python IDEs because of it's main feature "Variable Explorre", which is required all the time for Data Scientist like to observe all the variable data. I've used Atom,Sublime, PyCharm but none of these offers variable explorer as good as Spyder. Pandas dataframe and numpy arrays are displayed succinctly along with indexes and object types! Makes life easy!

Other features like console, debugger work good as expected. Although Spyder UI is bit old-looking, still a good choice for Data Science work.. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Console and Variable Explorer can not be turned to Dark mode which is frustrating.

Few add-on options like of PyCharm would've been more helpful.

Takes time to open (10+ seconds on SSD)

UI still looks little bit old. Material colors in UI would look good.

Docstrings are not populated automatically for functions with various formats. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you work a lot handling pandas dataframes, use Spyder without second thought!! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

Debugging Pandas Dataframe is fast. Before using Spyder I was spending unnecessary time on other IDEs to log dataframes and then check out data. Using Spyder it's not a problem. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Being a python developer I started my journey with Spyder as one of the best Python IDE which helps a lot while developing your skills:-

1 It provides best third party plugins like Spyder UnitTest, Spyder Reports.

2 Easy to download with Anaconda.

3 You can run code in chunks which helps to develop long program step by step and same goes for debugging.

4 Live IPython interaction which makes coding more intuitive as you can further take the output of your program and directly start writing code chunks in spyder ipython terminal.

5 You can do live graph changes. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Spyder is best for Scientific application development or analysis of real time data but it lacks some of the below mentioned points :-

1 Auto complete : Spyder has this feature but compare to other IDE it is not that great even miss out to complete most basic functions.

2 Not light, sometime it takes too much time to start, but VSCode start faster than Spyder. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I highly recommend Spyder for those who develop scientific application and do real time data analysis. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

Excellent libraries

Ease with which coding can be done

Excellent Debugging facility

Variable explorer options

For a beginner this is a platform that we can use without the fear of running into issues. The numpy, scikit learn libraries, the matplotlib and for neural networks tensor flow is like the best of all. You will enjoy coding every minute Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

There are some issues with the tensor flow hub libraries which do not let us use the old attributes from the previous versions. We will need to google them and all to know Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Best part of Spyder IDE is it looks like Matlab, GUI is quite similar, It supports script run. We can debug the code easily and another thing is we can preview the data without loading that in Pyhton Memory.

It provides the file managements as well. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The thing which i don't like about spyder is that It hanged the system sometime, if the data is large. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I think spyder is wonderful for python development for windows. It is free and I love the introspection for code completion. The inbuilt console is good. Just the fact that spyder was made in python and completely for python development makes it very reliable and secure. It has an easy installation procedure too. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Spyder takes a lot of time to load up through its Anaconda distribution. I have had issues with configuring paths, especially for pyblues and Bluetooth applications through spyder. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I would recommend installing spyder by itself rather than through the anaconda package. It is much harder and takes a lot longer otherwise. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

It is simple to use and a relatively small software. Compare to other softwares, it does not have a lot of functions which allows it to be less buggy and easier to navigate. While editing scripts, the outline function provides headers of various section of code / classes name. This is a very useful function as it helps to navigate efficiently through a massive script. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The debugging function is not as strong as other coding softwares. It also does not have spell check function and code wrapping function. With all these, the program will be even better. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Definitely worth considering if you are coding in python everyday. Spyder is simple to use and helps you to code effectively. All the built in features help to lay your code better. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

I have to produce scripts which does data crunching and analysis. Therefore, i use spyder on a daily basis. As spyder is a simple software, it is easy to use and saves a lot of time. The built in ipython feature allows me to test my code, try new lines of code and run my code; thus, allowing me to code more efficiently. The coding syntax colour and dark mode help me to visualise the script better. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The first time I used this software was when I started to learn python. I found it the best helping software for me. It is also an open source and free. The other best part of it is that it has cross-platform support and it is also lightweight. It supports all the libraries of pythons and also libraries for ML. It also has a very powerful autocompletion which is provided by the rope library. Furthermore, Spyder is also useful for plotting graphs and it also provides the list of all variables with it. The other good thing about it is that people are able to directly connect their projects with their GitHub account. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

There are only a few things that need to be improved. The first is the theme of the IDE. The current theme is not that much attractive or codding friendly. The second thing is it consumes a lot of memory especially if a person is working with a large amount of data like arrays or ML data for training. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

This is the best software for any python projects as it supports all the libraries. Even for beginners, it is very helpful as it provides very well documentation also. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

I have developed the two projects using the Spyder IDE. One is face detection and another one is image hashing. This software was very helpful to me. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
