Log out then log back in OR run shell so your shell (bash or csh/tcsh) will be aware of the newly installed conda commands.
Create a new conda environment with packages of your choosing. In this example, I will create an openeye python3 environment with relevant packages. $ conda create --name <environment name> <additional packages to install in environment>
$ conda create --name oepython3 python=3 Solving environment: done . . . Proceed ([y]/n)? y . . . Preparing transaction: done Verifying transaction: done Executing transaction: done
List your conda environments. See that the environment you just created is there.
[username@n-9-34 ~]$ conda info --envs # conda environments: # base * /nfs/home/<username>/miniconda3 oepython3 /nfs/home/<username>/miniconda3/envs/oepython3
Activate your conda environment to customize it or work with it. I will be adjusting my openeye environment.
[<username>@n-9-34 ~]$ source activate oepython3 (oepython3) [<username>@n-9-34 ~]$
If you don't need your conda environment anymore. Deactivate it.
(oepython3) [<username>@n-9-34 ~]$ conda deactivate [<username>@n-9-34 ~]$
Sharing Conda Environments
If you run into a coworker whose using a conda environment and you would like the same environment, ask your coworker to export the environment into a YAML file.
$ conda env export > environment.yml
The user who wants to use that environment file will create a new environment with the YAML file as an argument
$ conda env create -f environment.yml
