No problem.

Let's first wait for the spyder 2.3 install instructions, which should
make clear whether the people at spyder prefer 1 or 2 spyder instances
(for python 2 / 3) on linux. Otherwise, we can just ask them.

And then first follow those 'spyder supported' instructions, to update
the arch linux package files.

Then after that, if there is a real need for it, we can perhaps have
PKGBUILD build and install 2 spyder instances.

All fair points. However, for me, I felt that having two spyder installs was easier for me at this time so I could develop Python 2 and 3 code at the same time.

I accept that in very few cases this is an ideal or even desired solution by any sane people.

Thanks. that's great, but why would you want Spyder 2.3, coming soon with official Python 2 and 3 support, to also run under Python 2?

I plan to switch over to running Spyder under Python 3, when officially supported.

Also, there are no official Python 3 build and installation instructions for Spyder, last time I looked, so better wait for that or at least wait for Spyder 2.3. Until then, I assume you will be able to develop in Python 2 and 3 with just a Spyder / Python 3 installation.

I made a hacky/terrible PKGBUILD that creates a python2 and python3 version of spyder. Since both versions now use separate config directories they can work side by side.

This is my first time touching a PKGBUILD, so I can not guarantee that it won't melt your PC.

Look here:

well, if i want the python3 version installed without installing the python2 dependencies, i’ll have to edit the pkgbuild. i think this warrants a second package.

Embarrassed apologies...I am not used to using a touchpad and accidentally flagged the package out of date...which it isn't...

@rubenvb: Thanks. Makedepends updated. I plan on migrating the package to python3 when spyder 2.3 comes out and python 3 is officially supported. I know it already can run in python3 (see PKGBUILD file). Spyder 2.3 will then support development in both python 2 and 3. I don't see a real need to add or rename packages that will then start with 'python-' or 'python2-' in this case. (Also, if you have spyder 2.3 running in python3, then why have another package that installs spyder in python2?)

mercurial should be in makedepends, and this should be named "python2-spyder-hg" because it is possible to use the dev branch with python3.

Update: patch for pylint2; don' install

Updated package (pacman 4.1, python dependencies, ...).
