Channels are locations where Navigator and conda look for packages. You can search and browse packages and channels on anaconda.org.
Navigator and conda only search for packages in active channels. You can temporarily disable a channel by making it inactive.
For example, let’s say you want to look for packages on the “Milagro” channel of anaconda.org. All three of these channel variations will look for packages in the same place on anaconda.org:
- By URL – https://anaconda.org/milagro.
- By conda URL – https://conda.anaconda.org/milagro.
- By name – milagro.
On the Environment page, click Channels to open the channels manager.
Adding a channel¶
Type or paste the channel name, the URL, or the conda URL.
A URL can also contain an access token parameter and value. A URL will automatically be transformed to a conda URL.
Deleting a channel¶
- Click the trash can icon next to the channel name.
- Click Update Channels.
