Sample recipes#

Conda offers you the flexibility of being able to build things that are not Python related. The first 2 sample recipes, boost and libtiff, are examples of non-Python libraries, meaning they do not require Python to run or build.

  • boost is an example of a popular programming library and illustrates the use of selectors in a recipe.

  • libtiff is another example of a compiled library, which shows how conda can apply patches to source directories before building the package.

  • msgpack, blosc, and cytoolz are examples of Python libraries with extensions.

  • toolz, sympy, six, and gensim are examples of Python-only libraries.

gensim works on Python 2, and all of the others work on both Python 2 and Python 3.
