Hello everyone,

I'm a new Sagemath user and I'm interested in set up a GUI. The main ones I've found are Spyder and Cantor. However, Spyder is intended for Python and the Sagemath backend for Cantor doesn't seem to work properly...

How can I configure Spyder and Cantor to work with Sagemath as a backend?

Thank you so much for your answers!

Just use the Jupyter / IPython notebook ?

The Jupyter notebook is really good, but it's browser-based and I prefer to work in a proper GUI...

There's nothing "proper" or "improper" about the Juypter Notebook as a GUI. I suppose you mean some kind of native GUI.

Have you installed SageMath and Cantor? What do you mean exactly by "the Sagemath backend for Cantor doesn't seem to work properly"? Here are some resources about Cantor:

Another option is to use SageMath inside TeXmacs.

Also, the bug might be on the Cantor side. Have you reported the issue on the Cantor forum or mailing list?

@slelievre: Yes, I've installed both. It seems that the bug is on Cantor as discussed here: Thank you so much for the resources!
