@blink1073 I'm actually confused...after I went to read the code, I can't reproduce the bug anymore...I found a quantistic bug, clearly XD so don't worry about the regex, probably it was just some configuration that went postal...
Hi everyone, I am new here, I came across spyder some time ago when it was hosted on code.google.com, the project is awesome, but it is strictly for scientific computing? I mean I get that the name itself says so. Could it be improved so as to compete with normal IDEs like Eclipse?
@cjrh the window bug its mine, I think I know how to get that fixed!, the interactive tutorial was very experimental (as in I was learning qt doing that!)
Hi @thewhitetulip, thanks for the interest, as to compete directly with Eclipse, probably not, as to enhance Spyder so you do not need to go to Eclipse to accomplish certain tasks under the same IDE, I think that is doable :)
@thewhitetulip I'd say that spyder is oriented towards scientific computing, not reserved to scientific computing. I personnaly use it for all my python development, which include scientific tasks but also ui, documentation, some web here and here...
The main advantage over eclipse is that it focuses on python (almost) exclusively, so it it a lot simpler and every feature is deeply intergrated with python.
I'm here installing spyder with a colleague under macosx...it is a damn pain due to qt issues, but we managed. She was asking me how hard would it be to include a package manager for the most common libraries
