Hello, I couldn't help but ask for help myself. I have both anaconda and ros installed, I learnt that they both would be in conflict after I installed anaconda obviously..now I am wondering if I use ros with any ipython notebook, preferably jupyter, I noticed how hard this might become. I am currently installing spyder from the package installer as an advice from my professor has used the ipython with ros onfront of us. I am wondering if there's better practice or advises basically..

I don't really understand your question. What is hard? In my experience jupyter notebooks work just fine with ROS. The problem when using ROS with Anaconda is essentially that Anaconda replaces the python executable and the python version in the Anaconda environment may not be compatible with ROS.
