Remove an environment

To do it with no questions asked

conda env remove --name foo --yes

Ask for confirmation

conda env remove --name foo

If the environment was installed in a non standard location

conda env remove -p foo

where foo is the path of the environment.

tags | delete

related commands:

conda info --envs
conda remove --help

update environment

conda env update -f environment.yml

where environment.yml is the path of the environment file

Ref:- https://conda.io/docs/commands/env/conda-env-update.html

update conda

conda update -n <env_name> -c defaults --yes conda

For example

conda update -n base -c defaults --yes conda

To specify a particular version number, X.Y.Z (ex:- 4.5.4)

conda update -n base -c defaults --yes conda=X.Y.Z

To downgrade to a specific version

conda config --set allow_conda_downgrades true
conda install -n base -c defaults conda=4.6.14

Ref:-

find the package version

tags | check package version, list packages in environment, show the package version

To find the version of a package installed

conda list -n env_name package_name

For example

$ conda list pandas -n py39
# packages in environment at C:\ProgramData\Continuum\Anaconda\envs\py39:
#
# Name                    Version                   Build  Channel
pandas                    1.2.4            py39hd77b12b_0
pandas-datareader         0.9.0                      py_0

You can also use this technique to check if a package is installed.

For multiple packages

conda list -n env_name | grep -E "pkgA|pkgB"

For example

$ conda list -n py39 | grep -E "pandas|numpy"
numpy                     1.20.1           py39h34a8a5c_0
numpy-base                1.20.1           py39haf7ebc8_0
pandas                    1.2.4            py39hd77b12b_0
pandas-datareader         0.9.0                      py_0

source activate vs. conda activate

For conda >= 4.4.0, use “conda activate” instead of “source activate”. The former is faster and the command remains same across OSes.

From https://github.com/conda/conda/blob/master/CHANGELOG.md#440-2017-12-20 → “New Feature Highlights” section

conda activate: The logic and mechanisms underlying environment activation have been reworked. With conda 4.4, conda activate and conda deactivate are now the preferred commands for activating and deactivating environments. You'll find they are much more snappy than the source activate and source deactivate commands from previous conda versions. The conda activate command also has advantages of (1) being universal across all OSes, shells, and platforms, and (2) not having path collisions with scripts from other packages like python virtualenv's activate script.

# Until the issue is fixed, set +eu before calling "source activate"
# and set -eu afterwards

# If the conda.sh is not sourced, then 'conda activate' is giving

create an environment on the fly

Sample commands:

conda create -n <myenv> python ipython prompt_toolkit=2 jupyter pandas numpy scipy scikit-learn matplotlib

conda create -n <myenv> python=3.9 pandas pandas-datareader

commands I came across

$ conda config --add pinned_packages defaults::conda

To revert

$ conda config --remove-key pinned_packages
