Installing the Anaconda Client CLI

You can use the Anaconda Client command line interface (CLI) in an Anaconda Prompt or Terminal window to:

  • Connect to and manage your Anaconda Repository account.
  • Upload packages you have created.
  • Generate access tokens to allow access to private packages.

NOTE: Anaconda Client is not necessary to search for and download packages.

Anaconda Client requires conda to be installed. If you have Anaconda, conda is already installed.

To install with conda, open Anaconda Prompt or Terminal window and enter:

conda install anaconda-client

After installing, view the complete list of Client tasks with this command from Anaconda Prompt or Terminal window:
