Kite cannot detect Spyder installation

Depending on where and how you installed Spyder, Kite may not be able to detect your installation of Spyder on your system. However, as long as you have Spyder 4.0+, Kite should work natively with Spyder.

To enable Kite manually in Spyder:

  1. Open Spyder's preferences.
  2. Click on the "Completion and linting" on the left hand side.
  3. Click on the "Advanced" tab.
  4. Ensure that "Enable Kite (if the Kite Engine is running)" checkbox is checked.
