How to…

Use packages

Find a package

From Anaconda Repository, you can search for packages by package name. From the top navigation bar of any page, in the search box enter the package name. You can filter your searches using type of the packages, access or labels and you can sort results by number of favorites or number of downloads by clicking the search results column heading.

Download and install a conda package from Repository

To install a conda package, in a Terminal window or an Anaconda Prompt run:

conda install -c USERNAME PACKAGE

NOTE: Conda expands USERNAME to a URL such as https://<your-anaconda-repo>/username based on the settings in the .condarc file.

NOTE: Replace USERNAME with your username and PACKAGE with the name of the desired package.

Download and install a PyPI package from Repository

To install a PyPI package, in a Terminal window or an Anaconda Prompt run:

pip install --index-url pypi.anaconda.org/USERNAME/PACKAGE
