Conda

This is a quick tutorial on using conda files. I sill start with a simple cheatsheet, here is a more complete one: conda cheatsheet

  1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 # show infos about current env conda info # create environment from file conda env create -f environment.yml # activate the environment (you might replace this with selecting it directly) conda activate # lists installed packages conda list # install package conda install # update conda conda update -n base conda 

Environment file example

You can store the following into environment.yml. It describes a my-env environment on your computer.

  1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 name: my-env channels: - defaults - conda-forge dependencies: - python=3.8 # or 2.7 if you are feeling nostalgic - numpy - matplotlib - pandas - seaborn 

Installation

For now I am simply going to refer to conda installation
