Working with environments

To share an environment on Anaconda Cloud:

  1. See the conda user guide to create and save a conda environment. Open the Terminal or an Anaconda Prompt and enter:

    conda env export -n my-environment -f my-environment.yml
    

    NOTE: Replace my-environment with the actual name of your environment.

  2. Upload it to Cloud either using the web interface or the conda env upload command.

    • Using the web interface:

      Go to https://anaconda.org/USERNAME/environments.

      NOTE: Replace USERNAME with your username.

      In the top right corner use the Upload button to upload your environment.

    • Using the conda env upload command from the Terminal or an Anaconda Prompt:

      conda env upload -f my-environment.yml
      

      NOTE: Replace my-environment with the actual name of your environment.

  3. You can see a list of your uploaded environments at:

    http://envs.anaconda.org/USERNAME
    

    NOTE: Replace USERNAME with your username.

  4. Anyone can download and install your environment from Cloud.

    • Using the web interface:

      Go to https://anaconda.org/USERNAME/environments.

      NOTE: Replace USERNAME with the username.

      Select the environment, go to Files tab and click the file to download under Names field.

    • Using the Terminal or an Anaconda Prompt:

      conda env create user/my-environment
      source activate my-environment
      

      NOTE: Replace my-environment with the actual name of your environment.
