Anaconda Distribution

Anaconda Distribution

Open-source Python software you need for projects in any field, from data visualization to robotics.


Anaconda Repository

Over 8,000 open-source data science and machine learning packages, Anaconda-built and compiled for all major operating systems and architectures.


Conda is an open-source package and environment management system that runs on Windows, macOS, and Linux. Conda quickly installs, runs, and updates packages and their dependencies. It also easily creates, saves, loads, and switches between environments on your local computer. It was created for Python programs, but it can package and distribute software for any language.


Some critics suggest Anaconda is bloated and that a more workable approach is through Miniconda, as this only installs the core modulkes required, whilst others can be installed as needed.

Anaconda Navigator

A desktop application to allow one to manage integrated applications, packages, and environments without using the command line.

Cloud Environment Backup

Community portal, Anaconda Nucleus, allows storage of local environments in the cloud.

Frequent tasks
