I have added all the new dependencies to PKGBUILD, except for python2-qdarkstyle which is not available.

I am not seeing the "Invalid icon name" exception. Do you have python-qtawesome-git installed and is it up-to-date?

I'm unable to run spyder3-git. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated. I get the following error:

edit: after installing 'python-atomicwrites', it became clear I also needed to have 'python-spyder-kernels-git' rather than just 'python-spyder-kernels'. Then I later learned that 'python-qdarkstyle' is also needed. But even with these extra dependencies installed, I'm still left with the following error:

The last line of the error being: Exception: Invalid icon name "format-letter-case" in font "mdi"

@cerikson: Thanks. Updated to include all new dependencies.

Just did a install on a fresh system and the dependency python-language-server was missing after install. Which caused spyder3 to crash on startup.

@CAM-Gerlach: Thanks. Updated as much as possible.

@willemw Hey, this is C.A.M. Gerlach, one of the Spyder developers. I just wanted to let you know a few quick things:

  • First and foremost, thanks for helping maintain the Spyder distro package on Arch!
  • The full name of our package should be (note capitalization) "The Scientific Python Development Environment", i.e. without the strange caps we eliminated several versions ago.
  • Unless required to be Github for technical reasons, you can update the main URL to point to our new site,
  • Should python-pyside and python=pyqt4 be dropped from the optional deps, since they are no longer supported GUI backends as of a long time ago, and 3.3.0 respectively?
  • Finally, if you'd like a more representative one-liner desription, feel free to use

    "Spyder is a powerful Python IDE combining the editing, analysis, debugging and profiling functionality of a software development tool with the data exploration, interactive execution, deep inspection and rich visualization capabilities of a scientific environment like MATLAB or Rstudio."

or some variant thereof.

Thanks again for all your work! I sent you an email with more details on all of this, for your reference.

@AnySomebody: lists all spyder3 dependencies.

I'm only going to provide the -git versions.

You have to install python-spyder-kernels-git manually (with the --asdep option). I don't know of any AUR helper that can help you with that.

Please update dependency python-spyder-kernels to python-spyder-kernels-git or correct me in case I'm wrong but I couldn't find python-spyder-kernels in AUR.

@j_4321. Thanks. Corrected the typo.

j_4321 commented on 2018-07-16 12:29

Great! but I think there is a typo in package_spyder3-git(), in the depends array, there is 'python2-spyder-kernels' instead of 'python-spyder-kernels'.
