The page options in the left column of Navigator represent the programs main components. Click a page name to open it.
The Home page is open by default when Navigator starts. Home displays all of the available applications that you can manage with Navigator.
The first time you open Navigator, the following popular graphical Python
applications are already installed or are available to install:
You can also build your own Navigator applications.
Working with application tiles
In each application tile, you can:
- Launch the application–Click its Launch button.
- Install an application–Click its Install button.
- Update, remove, or install a specific version of an application–Click the gear icon in the top-right corner of the application tile.
Applications are installed in the active environment, which is displayed in the Applications on list. To install an application in a specific environment, first select the environment from the list, then click the Install button on the application’s tile.
The Environments page allows you to manage installed environments, packages, and channels.
The left column lists your environments. Click an environment to activate it.
With Navigator, like with conda, you can create, export, list, remove, and update environments that have different versions of Python and/or other packages installed. Switching or moving between environments is called activating the environment. Only one environment is active at any point in time. For more information, see Managing environments.
The right column lists packages installed in the currently-activated environment. The default view is Installed packages. To change which packages are displayed, click the arrow next to the list, then select from Installed, Not Installed, Updatable, Selected, or All packages. For more information, see Managing packages.
Channels are locations where Navigator or conda looks for packages. Click the Channels button to open the Channels Manager and modify which channels Navigator uses. For more information, see Managing channels.
On the Learning page, you can learn more about Navigator, the Anaconda platform, and open data science. Click the Documentation or Training buttons to filter the learning tiles visible to you. Click any tile to open it in a browser window.
