I'm using Spyder 5.0.0 with anaconda on Ubuntu 18.04.5. Is code collapsing (folding) available? If yes, how do I use it (it doesn't seem to show up by default)
i try standalone installation on windows... and Spyder just initilazing... great
i try with anaconda ... same result
spyder is the IDE i need but i can't use it... i'm very despointed to install anaconda to use it , to try to use it sorry...
keep spyder 4.2.5 python -m pip install spyder works like the charm.
So to use the standalone version, and to use a particular environment, I have to change the default interpreter each time and restart spyder?

Something very hard is happening with spyder development. At least they should avoid the pop-up dialog of updating spyder to new version 5 while so-many issues decrease

@alekseyreha what is it
Hi ya'll, I absolutely adore the Spyder IDE! Thank you all for your time and energy spent on this project. I wanted to ask/spark a discussion around the use of VIM with spyder seeing how the plugin development fizzled a way back. Has anyone continued interest and energy to rally a bit on developing it once more? Or does anyone have temporary workarounds to use vim as an editor in tandem with spyder somehow? If anyone has any experience in general with accessibility work around that will allow me to not have to use a mouse at all/just shortcut about as I usually do with hot keys and vim I'd love to chat with you.
Perhaps some of you use spyder without a mouse using other tools?

Hi. I use the latest Spyder Standalone installation on Windows. Yesterday, on the day of installation, everything was fine. Today, after some Windows updates, Spyder does not launch anymore. Already tried to reinstall with two options, for everyone on my computer and just for me, but I get the same error when launching, which is:

C:\Program Files\Spyder>Python\python.exe Spyder.launch.pyw
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "Spyder.launch.pyw", line 34, in <module>

File "pkgs\zmq\backend\cython\

from . import (
ImportError: DLL load failed: The specified module could not be found.

The strangest thing that comes to my mind is the line:

Why is it trying to load something from D: drive?

Any Idea about what I could try?

Hello all,

I am using spyder in conda environment and I have an interesting issue. When I right click somewhere the icons shown "on" the letters. As a new user it is too hard for me to use like that. Any suggestions?

I was able to solve my issue. Reset Spyder did the trick. Although I used reset spyder option from another spyder installation (from an conda installation) since the standalone app did not register a reset option in the start menu.

Hello. I have a problem. An error ocurred while starting the kernel
Your Python environment or installation doesn't have the spyder‑kernels module or the right version of it installed (>= 2.0.1 and < 2.1.0). Without this module is not possible for Spyder to create a console for you.

You can install it by running in a system terminal:

conda install spyder‑kernels=2.0


pip install spyder‑kernels==2.0.*

Spider doesn't start the console. What can I do?

@ccordoba12 please take no offense. Is it true that anaconda has discoutinued updates for Spyder. If that is the case we need to use forge or standalone version to install. Sorry for mentioning you.
Carlos Cordoba
@srvmig, I don't know what happens with Anaconda, to be honest, but I hope they will resume updating Spyder at some point. Unfortunately, a lot of errors present in our 5.0.0 version (the last one available in Anaconda) are fixed now in 5.0.3. So the only way to get those fixes is by using Conda-forge or our installers, as you said
how do i install libraries like sklearn ,seaborn
theres nothing better than a bloat free direct pip installation in my opinion, remember to contribute to the spyder project!
