I can execute files in Jupyter Notebook (http://jupyter.org/try) without installing it to my machine..
Jupyter and Spyder are very different platforms that complement each other, but serve different purposes. Jupyter is a notebook; therefore it makes sense to be able to interact with them remotely as this is its primary purpose and "selling point", to be able to easily share data, analysis and visualizations in an informal and interactive manner. Spyder is a full-featured IDE, like Pycharm, Rstudio or MATLAB, for both interactive exploration, developing analysis scripts, visualizing data, creating proper packages on which to build truly reproducible research, and doing most of the other tasks that fall under the label of scientific programming, software engineering and data analysis other than writing interactive reports, and thus its functionality cannot, like any other IDE, be properly replicated in a web browser alone, at least not without substantial compromises. However, we do have plugins to interact with and edit Jupyter notebooks from within Spyder as well as create dynamically driven reports, our consoles are built on the same IPython shell and on Jupyter QtConsole, and we offer inline and (in Spyder 4) a dedicated plugin for data visualization with Matplotlib/Pyplot.
However, inline is no longer an available backend for the ipython console
@KristianRams, I don't understand this. When does that happen?
