Spyder (formerly Pydee) is an open source cross-platform IDE for scientific programming in the Python language. Spyder integrates NumPy, SciPy, Matplotlib and IPython, as well as other open source software.[1][2]

In comparison with other IDEs for scientific development Spyder has a unique set of features - cross-platform, open-source, written in Python and available under non-copyleft license.[citation needed][dubious ] Spyder is extensible with plugins,[3] includes support for interactive tools for data inspection and embeds Python-specific code quality assurance and introspection instruments, such as Pyflakes, Pylint[4] and Rope. It is available cross-platform through Anaconda, on Windows with WinPython and Python(x,y), on Mac OS through MacPorts, and on major Linux distributions such as Ubuntu, Debian, Fedora, OpenSuse, Gentoo or ArchLinux.[5][6]

It uses Qt either directly or through PyQt or PySide.
