Spyder extensions for the python-lsp-server (pylsp). This package provides Spyder-specific extras for the Language Server Protocol (LSP) on Python, such as document symbol searching and others.


To install pyls-spyder, you can use both conda or pip package managers:

# Using conda (Recommended)
conda install pyls-spyder -c spyder-ide

# Using pip
pip install pyls-spyder


This package depends on the python-lsp-server to integrate the Spyder-specific extensions.

Installing locally

To install and develop spyder-pyls locally, you will need to install the python-lsp-server:

# Using conda
conda install python-lsp-server

# Using pip
pip install python-lsp-server

Then, you can install the package locally using pip:

pip install -U -e .

Running tests

We use pytest to run tests as it follows:

pytest -x -v pyls_spyder/tests

Extended LSP calls
