How to get the list with all available methods to show up after typing variable and dot in Spyder?

How to get the list with all available methods to show up after typing variable and dot in Spyder?

In the video “Some list methods” of the course “The Python Programmer Bootcamp” a demo is given of how Spyder shows a list of all available methods. It shows that when you type the name of a variable followed by a dot, automatically a list show up of all the available methods from which you can choose. Whatever I try, when I do this, nothing appears. I only see the variable and the dot. How can I  get this popup window with the available options appearing?
I use Spyder 4.1.3 and Python 3.7.

I got this solved by installing Kite in Spyder as follows:

  • Launch Spyder
  • Open the “Tools” tab
  • Click on “Reset Spyder to factory defaults
  • Then a window appears saying: Now Spyder can use Kite to provide better and more accurate code completions in its editor for the most important packages in the Python scientific ecosystem, such as Numpy, Matpotlib and Pandas. Would you like to install it or learn more about it?
  • Choose “Install Kite”

After Kite is installed, auto completion works and popup windows with available methods appear.
