What is Anaconda.org?
Anaconda.org is a package management service by Anaconda. Anaconda.org makes it easy to find, access, store and share public notebooks, environments, and conda and standard Python packages. Anaconda.org also makes it easy to stay current with updates made to the packages and environments you are using. Anaconda.org hosts hundreds of useful Python packages, notebooks, projects, and environments for a wide variety of applications. You do not need to log in, or even to have a Anaconda.org account, to search for public packages, download and install them.
You can build new conda packages using conda-build, then upload the packages to Anaconda.org to quickly share with others or access yourself from anywhere. The Anaconda.org command line interface (CLI), anaconda-client, allows you to manage your account - including authentication, tokens, upload, download, remove and search.
Connect to and manage your Anaconda.org account. Upload packages you have created. Generate access tokens to allow access to private packages.
For developers, Anaconda.org is designed to make software development, release and maintenance easy by providing broad package management support. Anaconda.org allows for free public package hosting, as well as package channels, providing a flexible and scalable service for groups and organizations of all sizes.
Hosting of freely available packages always remains free for individuals and organizations hosting up to 3 GB of packages.
To use Anaconda.org, you should first:
- Download Anaconda. The Anaconda installer includes conda, conda-build and anaconda-client.
- Become familiar with using conda. A good place to start is the conda cheat sheet and the conda test drive.
