Hi all, I was wondering if it's possible to create an executable file with Spyder

@sgourkar Do you mean of the Spyder program itself, or of you code written with Spyder?

There used to be standalone Spyder distribution, but that was discontinued a while ago since it was a lot of work to maintain and users generally need an environment like Anaconda, WinPython, etc. to work in anyway. As for creating a standalone executable from your own code, one generally uses specialized tools for that, like PyInstaller. Here's a basic guide that might be helpful.

I wrote something with the Spyder IDE, and was wondering if the software itself has that funcitonality.
