Create another environment on Anaconda, e.g., if you installed default is python 3, and you want to use python 2:
Activate and deactivate the environment (env):
You can install packages for python 2
with python 2.7 spyder
You can run the
spyder app with python 2.7 by activating the python2 env, and type spyder in the command line.
source activate python2
In case the
spyder is not automatically installed during creating the env, you should install it first.
conda install -n python2 spyder
