Spyder does not autocomplete local variables

(Spyder dev here) Spyder does complete local variables but to have this functionality you need to install a library called rope. You can do it by running this command in a terminal

pip install rope

If you use Python 3 this command needs to be

pip install rope_py3k

Besides, code completion on the Editor works now with both Ctrl+Space and with Tab.

Edit: Updated answer for the Spyder version 2.3.0.
