The quickest way to start using conda is to go through the 30-minute Getting started with conda guide.
conda command is the primary interface for managing
installations of various packages. It can:
- Query and search the Anaconda package index and current Anaconda installation.
- Create new conda environments.
- Install and update packages into existing conda environments.
TIP: You can abbreviate many frequently used command options that
are preceded by 2 dashes (
--) to just 1 dash and the first
letter of the option. So
-n are the same, and
-e are the same.
