Conda-build documentation

Conda-build contains commands and tools to use conda to build your own packages. It also provides helpful tools to constrain or pin versions in recipes. Building a conda package requires installing conda-build and creating a conda recipe. You then use the conda build command to build the conda package from the conda recipe.

You can build conda packages from a variety of source code projects, most notably Python. For help packing a Python project, see the Setuptools documentation.

OPTIONAL: If you are planning to upload your packages to Anaconda Cloud, you will need an Anaconda Cloud account and client.
