we have a lot of users requesting anaconda3 , python and r for windows and r studios. I would like to package it all together
Hello everyone! I'm looking for some feedback from those who are more familiar with Anaconda3 and the differences between each version. I noticed that some releases are associated with different versions of Python and want to understand if each should be treated separately like we currently do for Python (i.e. Python 3.10.x, Python 3.9.x, Python 3.8.x) or if any existing version of Anaconda3 can be upgraded to the latest without "breaking" anything. Please include your feedback in the comments as this will help determine how we proceed in adding this application to the catalog. Thanks!
Example of a .yml file you could use in a post-install script to create a conda environment with all desired packages (conda figures out all the dependencies of course):
Hi @Ben, maybe what you have in mind is Miniconda? More info here: https://docs.conda.io/en/latest/miniconda.html
That could be a good starting point given the constraints you mention. I don't think it would be that difficult for users to add a post-install script to create one or more conda environments and download all the necessary packages + dependencies.
Thanks Joe. The challenge we have is that while some customers expect the large content library download during installation - other customers may not. Think of an Autopilot scenario, if a customer tries to install Anaconda3 during Autopilot, that is going to almost certainly throw up some challenges with available bandwidth/timeouts. In the same thinking, trying to distribute software in an air gapped network will result in failure.
I am going to mark this request for "Future Consideration". I have reached out to Anaconda support to ask if we can perform an offline install where the libraries do not download during installation. If you have reach into their support perhaps you could ask the same and we will reconsider the application for our catalog again soon.
Comment from one of our devs, not sure if its of any use but its all I have right now.
No that's the purpose of the distribution.
It bundles all the data science libraries, and downloads them from pypi.
We are currently looking at this app in our lab. Does anyone have any experience installing Anaconda 3 and preventing it reaching out to the internet to download 6GB of packages? Trying with the --offline switch but any knowledge on this will accelerate our adoption in the catalog.
Any plans to prepar package?
Note that Anaconda 3 is licensed for business use
+1 - Please add Anaconda to catalog?
We run win 10 machines.
Agree need this
Agreed - want this!
Any news on this?
