when i enter code im not seeing autocomplete suggestions
You need to press the
Tab key after a word or character to get completions for it
nope. tab key doesnt do anything either
Please show us the code you're trying to code completions for. Don't forget to signal the point where you're pressing Tab too
pandasdataframes that it doesn't, due to how those packages are structured. Also, major improvements are in progress for Spyder 4.
did not have code analysis turned on by default
Uhh, I'm pretty sure PyCharm has rather extensive code analysis features, considering its target audience (big software developers)...
what makes spyder from anaconda different / better than a standalone installation
Much easier to install, update, and way less potential for problems. And there isn't such a thing as a truly fully standalone install; you still need python and the dependencies (including qt/pyqt) for it to work properly.
can I put a shortcut to the conda spyder on my desktop
Anaconda should have installed one already (far better than just your desktop) to your start menu so you can launch it normally like anything else (tap Win and start typing the name). If not, if you run like conda install -f spyder it should recreate them, otherwise something went funny with your install. You can also start spyder from any Anaconda Prompt or suitably configured terminal window with just
conda install matplotlib, assuming you don't have it (
conda list matplotlibto check, as the Spyder deps list doesn't currently show matplotlib, though there's an open issue to do so). Also, for the record, remember that Google is your friend :)
