Spyder IDE hanging

Postby tnknepp » Tue Feb 04, 2014 2:47 pm

Not really a Python question...rather an IDE question.
I have been using Spyder as my IDE of choice, which has been great. However, it tends to hang when it is trying to autocomplete something (note, this only happens the first time I call a module). So, if I type in the editor:

Code: Select all
import pandas as pd

data = pd.DataFrame()


I will typically get so far as "data = pd.Da" when Spyder hangs for 10s (seriously, 10s!)to think about ALL the autocomplete options available. I really like Spyder, but this is VERY frustrating. I have not found a solution online so I wonder if anyone else has had a similar experience with this IDE and hopefully found some solution.

This should not be a hardware issue since I am running on a Xeon E5-1650 CPU, 32GB RAM. Any help is appreciated.

I've never used that IDE, but did you try to reinstall it? Or maybe you can disable that feature (unless you feel that you need it).

I have tried it on two machines. I do like autocomplete when using modules that I rarely use, though perhaps disabling is the right choice.
