JetBrains opens up DataSpell — now available to all data scientists

The DataSpell developer early-access programme (EAP) is now open to all comers, according to developer tools specialist JetBrains.

Andrey Cheptsov, product manager for JetBrains, said DataSpell is its new integrated development environment (IDE) built specifically for data scientists, available via private EAP since March.

“So far, we’ve invited only a limited number of users to help us polish the rough edges,” Cheptsov said. “[The] DataSpell team over the last several months has been polishing the notebook experience.”

As of mid-September, JetBrains began sending invitations to everyone who had indicated they would like access, as well as opening up download builds from the website, without needing to register first.

Since the launch, JetBrains has been polishing Jupyter notebook cell manipulations, access to all the traditional shortcuts, output display and working on quick fixes.

DataSpell is available in addition to PyCharm Professional Edition, and targets data scientists in particular, Cheptsov said.

“When it comes to the Python ecosystem, there has never been an IDE designed specifically for data science. People involved in data science had to use either editors, developer IDEs, or standalone Jupyter notebooks,” he said.

“Only in the R ecosystem has a standalone IDE for data science actually been available.”

Overall, JetBrains expects DataSpell to be a “more practical and efficient environment” for working with data. Features that relate to working with data will be prioritised, the developer has promised.

“Once Python support is polished enough, we’ll also look at other languages one by one, for example first R, then Julia, and then others.”

Basic support for R is already available, according to the related JetBrains FAQ.
