User guideΒΆ

Welcome to the conda build user guide. Here you can find tutorials and recipes as well as information about environment variables and wheel files.

Tutorials

The tutorials will guide you through how to build conda packages---whether you're creating a package with compilers, using conda skeleton, creating from scratch, or building R packages using skeleton CRAN.

Recipes

Conda build uses recipes to create conda packages. We have guides on debugging conda recipes, sample recipes for you to use, and how to build a package without a recipe.

Environment variables

Use our environment variables guide to understand which environment variables are available, set, and inherited, and how they affect different processes.

Wheel files

The user guide includes information about wheel files and how to build conda packages from them.
