Python Tutorial: Anaconda – Installation and Using Conda

FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites

In this Python Tutorial, we will be learning how to install Anaconda by Continuum Analytics. Anaconda is a data science platform that comes with a lot of useful features right out of the box. Many people find that installing Python through Anaconda is much easier than doing so manually. Also, we will look at Conda. Conda is Continuum’s package, dependency and environment manager. Let’s get started.

    after i activate the package, how the fuck do i use it?!! please, help. I created a package using the scikit-learn, scipy, numpy, etc., and it went fine. However, i dont know what to do after i activate it. I tried to call the environment on python app, and that gave me an error, tried to call it through the dos prompt, etc. Same outputs. What is the purpose of creating an environment? Where im gonna be able to use it? thx!

    Hi. This a really nice tutorial. Thank you very much. I also got two questions. one is that how can i check which python i am using in windows os. Another is that why i do not have the python 2.7 option after i create virtual environment of python2.7?

    I am new to Python and followed Corey’s steps one by one and installed Anaconda for Python 3.5.
    But when I type Python to check the version, it still shows Python 2.7 which is the version installed on Mac originally. I checked the folders related to Python 3.5 but I can’t find anywhere Anaconda.
    Can someone please guide me to the right folder?

    This was helpful! I had started with miniconda but it gave me grief when starting the Jupyter notebook as it didn’t have pandas or matplotlib for some reason (I thought these modules were in the miniconda list but I may be mistaken).

    Excellent Your videos are spot on. I installed anaconda on windows. I have a problem when using  running Jupyter notebook.
    numpy, matplot,sciPy commands are running fine. When running few commands from IPython is giving a error? Can you please suggest me a solution? The error I am getting is
    NameError                                 Traceback (most recent call last)
    <ipython-input-20-14b6adb7cf48> in <module>()

    Great explanation, Corey, it helped me a lot. Thank you.
    BTW, for windows users I recommend using cmder instead of plain cmd or powershell, it’s more flexible and handy.

    i’m on mac os, i downloaded and installed python 3.6 beforehand, and then found this anaconda platform and installed it, seems anaconda is not associated with IDLE, but i can run using terminal, please help

    One question: I understand that Anaconda is a python distribution, but does that mean that it installs "another" python which will work in parallel with the current one I have on my PC? And that the packages installed with Anaconda will only be available in this "parallel" python and not in my current python??

    Thank you for this informative video. I have a doubt to ask. I installed Miniconda in my ubuntu system. I created an environment. According to me virtual environment created using conda is isolated in every sense. But to my surprise, I could access the packages installed in root directory from my virtual environment. How is it possible? If the environments are not isolated from each other, what is the purpose of creating different environments?
    Please reply
