Hello. I'm working on my bachelor thesis and are using Spyder. I have to write a paragraf about Spyder (what it is, history, etc.) but are finding it difficult to find the information I'm looking for. The information is available on https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spyder_(software), but since Wikipedia is not an approved source I can not use it. Many of the reference links on the Wiki page ar not working, so the information I'm looking for is most likely on one or more of those sites. Is there some sites you can think of that as the information I need?

Hi everyone, is there any way to have spyder highlight the current line while debugging?
Also, what an awesome product!

Hey @martharem95_twitter , thanks for your interest in Spyder and for letting us know about that! Feel free to ask more specific questions here, but you can find general information about Spyder on our

Check out our Readme on Github (or in your copy of Spyder), which gives and overview of Spyder and its functionality, and also contains a More information section which has links to our website, documentation and Dev Wiki, which you might find useful. If you need something more specific, just ask here and I can provide you a blurb (C.A.M. Gerlach, personal communication)-style as needed.

I'll take a look at that and fix them; thanks for letting us know.

@silviu-oprea It does highlight the line if you look closely, but its not always easy to spot and can get modified if clicking elsewhere. Spyder 4 already features a new debugger panel which provides a proper current line indicator; it will be released soon in Spyder 4 Beta 2 or you can try it out right now running it from Github.

Also, what an awesome product!

Thanks for your kind words! Actually, Spyder is less a product and more a user-led project, developed and funded by a for its international community of users like you!

@silviu-oprea In Spyder 3 it's under Source->Code style warnings and in Spyder 4 it's there too, but unfortunately It doesn't work yet

At least in the English localization of Spyder 3 and 4, its under Editor -> Code Introspection/Analysis -> Real-time code style analysis. Its also off by default in Spyder 3, for whatever reason.
