conda update --allusually ins't the best idea in the
baseenvironment or your main production one, since it can sometimes break things. I recommend sticking with
conda update anacondafor general environment updates then updating Spyder individually as needed with
conda update spyder.
Evironments. But I mostly just use the CLI.
is functionality for keeping a recipe in conda forge documented anywhere?
@j9ac9k, I don't understand what you mean by this, but our official recipe lives in conda-forge now
Thanks! And thanks for maintaining Spyder, I've used your code base as example code for TimeView!
Sure, no problem. Glad you reused part of our code for your project!
What is the diff between new "file" and "module" in Spyder?
Are those two different options in Spyder 4? I don't have the latter running at the moment... If not, in what context?
is file just a text file and module is a script?
In the general/conceptual case, a file is a file, any file, as with any other program, and a module is specifically defined as being quite different from a script, though any
.py file can be automatically treated as a module (assuming it defines something useful). Here's some general information I Googled for you from the Python docs.
can text file be saved as a .py file?
I don't see why not; its just a file extension...what matters if what is in the file is valid Python code
what makes a file just text and a file that can be "run" ?
More abstractly, whether the text in the file is valid syntax in some programming language, and more concretely whether the execute permissions bit is set for the file.
