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 base -c defaults conda --repodata-fn=repodata.json
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

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

activate conda environment

tags | activate conda environment through shell script

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.

Sample environment files

sample environment file

name: sample_py36
channels:
  - conda-forge

environment file to install pip package from a local repository

One way to specify a wheel file stored in a local directory as a pip dependency in a conda environment file is to do something like

name: test_ibapi
channels:
  - defaults
dependencies:
  - python=3.11
  - pip
  - pip:
    - file:///home/rajulocal/software/dist/ibapi-10.22.1-py3-none-any.whl

but this will not be portable when you move to a different machine since the wheel file path (/home/rajulocal/software/dist/ibapi-10.22.1-py3-none-any.whl) is hard coded. A better approach is to run

 % pip config set global.find-links file:///home/rajulocal/software/dist

which will modify pip.conf as

 % cat ~/.config/pip/pip.conf 
[global]
find-links = file:///home/rajulocal/software/dist

and then specify ibapi as a normal pip dependency.

name: test_ibapi
channels:
  - defaults
dependencies:
  - python=3.11
  - pip
  - pip:
    - ibapi

Sample commands:

$ conda config --add pinned_packages defaults::conda

To revert

$ conda config --remove-key pinned_packages

What is the difference between conda, pip, and virtualenv?

conda release numbers

  • After 4.14.0 (released on Aug 3, 2022), conda changed to CalVer versioning system. The release after 4.14.0 is 22.9.0 (released on Sep 20, 2022).
