Spyder is working wonderfully with numpy and pandas, but with Quandl I get the following error (in spyder):

        >>> import Quandl
        Traceback (most recent call last):
        File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
        ImportError: No module named Quandl

Yet from the terminal Quandl installed without issue:

    $ sudo easy_install quandl

Any input on why spyder would not be working with Quandl?

Must have been someone who tried to climb this mountain before me.

Solution went undiscovered when looking through stackoverflow, but was pointed out to me by the google group:

answer here!

I initially wrote Quandl (capitalized) and got an error, as it seems you are doing. It works lowercase for me (import quandl).

The python code from the quandl homepage is wrong on this point:

Quandl.get("OFDP/FUTURE_VX6", trim_start="2004-05-19", trim_end="2014-10-16")

Because they use a capitalized Q.

How do I install the Quandl Python library?, License: MIT; Home:; Development:​quandl/quandl-python; Documentation: conda install -c anaconda quandl  I got this problem in Anaconda Python after downgrading from 3.5 to 3.4. I tried using both pip install quandl and conda install quandl (Anaconda-specific) as well as some other variants such as uninstalling and reinstalling. I the end I realized the old value Quandl was cached.

I the end I realized the old value Quandl was cached. After removing the Anaconda/Lib/site-packages/Qandl folder entirely (after uninstalling) the pip install quandl worked as it should.

Hope this helps someone!

  • @NipunBatra - rebooted Spyder. still same issue unfortunately.
  • (Spyder dev here) Are you using our Mac native app? I mean the one you get from our dmg installer?
