I have a question about the intended way to use spyder with multiple conda environments? Currently I follow the "anaconda way" of installing spyder in all my environments. This however has the downside that all it's depdencies (e.g. qt which takes ~400mb extracted) are installed in each and every environment, which feels redundant.
Ideally I would like hierarchical conda environments, installing spyder only in the most basic environment which could then be used by all other ones. However, the issue regarding this seems to have been lost during the migration of conda-env into conda (conda/conda#1209).
spyder-condaplugin will allow to create projects that are tied to environments in a way that Spyder can point to the right place (env)
