I have managed to get spyder installed and functioning on my mac but I want to add in a few modules that it doesn't include by default (mahotas and pymorph).
I installed both via easy_install in the terminal and both seemed to install without any error messages. Running python from a terminal and using import mahotas and import pymorph works just fine without error messages. However, when I run the same lines from a script within spyder I get the following error:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
File "/opt/local/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.7/lib/python2.7/site-packages/spyderlib/widgets/externalshell/sitecustomize.py", line 493, in runfile
File "/Users/Name/Documents/Python/dna.py", line 11, in <module>
ImportError: No module named pymorph
Ok, no one has answered this yet but I managed to figure it out and get it working after also posting on the spyder discussion boards. For any libraries that you want to add that aren't included in the default search path of spyder, you need to go into Tools and add a path to each library via the PYTHONPATH manager. You'll then need to update the module names list from the same menu and restart spyder before the changes take effect.
