Spyder is a free, open-source (MIT license) interactive development
environment for the Python language with advanced editing, interactive
testing, debugging and introspection features. Originally designed to
provide MATLAB-like features (integrated help, interactive console,
variable explorer with GUI-based editors for dictionaries, NumPy arrays,
...), it is strongly oriented towards scientific computing and software
development. Thanks to the `spyderlib` library, Spyder also provides
powerful ready-to-use widgets: embedded Python console (example:, NumPy array editor
(example:, dictionary
editor, source code editor, etc.
