Spyder is a free and open-source IDE written in, and for programming in, Python. It is primarily intended for writing programs for technical computing and is built using the Qt widget toolkit. It is in the official repositories of Fedora.

There are two builds of Spyder: one with Python 2.x support and another with Python 3.x support. they are often called Spyder and Spyder3, respectively.

Installation

DNF

To install Spyder (with Python 2.x support) merely run:

sudo dnf install spyder

while to install Spyder3 run:

sudo dnf install python3-spyder

pip

If you want the very latest Spyder release it is probably best to use Python's pip package manager. To install Spyder this way one first needs to install PyQt5. To do this for Spyder (with Python 2.x support) run:

sudo dnf install python-qt5

while to do this for Spyder3 run:

sudo dnf install python3-qt5

Then to install Spyder (with Python 2.x support) with pip run:

sudo pip install spyder

while to install Spyder3 run:

sudo pip3 install spyder

To upgrade these installations of Spyder one merely needs to run these same commands with the --upgrade option. So for Spyder (with Python 2.x support) one would run:

sudo pip install --upgrade spyder
