Spyder can be installed with the following commands:
sudo apt install spyder
sudo apt install spyder3
Python IDE for scientists
Spyder is a free open-source Python development environment providing MATLAB-like features in a simple and lightweight application.
If for you want to install the latest version of Sypder 3 instead of the Ubuntu package maintainer's version in Ubuntu 18.04 and earlier, the commands to do so are as follows:
sudo apt install python3-pip python3-pyqt4 python3-pyqt5 python3-pyqt5.qtsvg python3-pyqt5.qtwebkit sudo python3 -m pip install --upgrade spyder
In Ubuntu 20.04 and later the commands to install the latest version of Sypder 3 are:
sudo apt install python3-pip python3-pyqt5 python3-pyqt5.qtsvg python3-pyqt5.qtwebkit sudo python3 -m pip install --upgrade spyder
Spyder can do inline plotting. To try out this feature open the terminal and type:
sudo apt install python3 python3-matplotlib spyder3 ipython3
After the ipython3 prompt in the IPython console copy/paste the below code and press the Enter key to run it.
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt x, y = [-1, 12], [1, 4] plt.plot(x, y, marker = 'o')
Spyder3 is only available for trusty from backports repository.
software-properties-gtk→ Update tab → Enable "Unsupported updates (trusty-backports)"
Now, you will able to find it in the software-center, otherwise using command line:
sudo apt update sudo apt install spyder3
