Installing on macOS¶
Download the installer:
Miniconda—In your terminal window, run:
Follow the prompts on the installer screens.
If you are unsure about any setting, accept the defaults. You can change them later.
To make the changes take effect, close and then re-open your terminal window.
Installing in silent mode¶
NOTE: The following instructions are for Miniconda. For Anaconda,
Miniconda in all of the commands.
To run the silent installation of Miniconda for macOS or Linux, specify the -b and -p arguments of the bash installer. The following arguments are supported:
- -b—Batch mode with no PATH modifications to
~/.bashrc. Assumes that you agree to the license agreement. Does not edit the
- -p—Installation prefix/path.
- -f—Force installation even if prefix -p already exists.
wget http://repo.continuum.io/miniconda/Miniconda3-3.7.0-Linux-x86_64.sh -O ~/miniconda.sh bash ~/miniconda.sh -b -p $HOME/miniconda export PATH="$HOME/miniconda/bin:$PATH"
NOTE: This sets the PATH only for the current session, not permanently. Trying to use conda when conda is not in your PATH causes errors such as “command not found.”
In each new bash session, before using conda, set the PATH and run the activation scripts of your conda packages by running:
with the path to the activate script in your conda installation.
To set the PATH permanently, you can add a line to your
.bashrc file. However, this makes it possible to use conda
without running the activation scripts of your conda packages,
which may produce errors.
