conda config

Modify configuration values in .condarc. This is modeled after the git config command. Writes to the user .condarc file (/home/docs/.condarc) by default.

Options:

usage: conda config [-h] [--json] [-v] [-q] [--system | --env | --file FILE]
                    [--show [SHOW [SHOW ...]] | --show-sources | --validate |
                    --describe [DESCRIBE [DESCRIBE ...]] | --write-default]
                    [--get [KEY [KEY ...]] | --append KEY VALUE | --prepend
                    KEY VALUE | --set KEY VALUE | --remove KEY VALUE |
                    --remove-key KEY | --stdin]

Output, Prompt, and Flow Control Options

--json

Report all output as json. Suitable for using conda programmatically.

-v, --verbose

Use once for info, twice for debug, three times for trace.

-q, --quiet

Do not display progress bar.

Config File Location Selection

Without one of these flags, the user config file at '/home/docs/.condarc' is used.

--system

Write to the system .condarc file at '/home/docs/checkouts/readthedocs.org/user_builds/continuumio-conda/conda/latest/.condarc'.

--env

Write to the active conda environment .condarc file (<no active environment>). If no environment is active, write to the user config file (/home/docs/.condarc).

--file

Write to the given file.

Config Subcommands

--show

Display configuration values as calculated and compiled. If no arguments given, show information for all configuration values.

--show-sources

Display all identified configuration sources.

--validate

Validate all configuration sources.

--describe

Describe given configuration parameters. If no arguments given, show information for all configuration parameters.

--write-default

Write the default configuration to a file. Equivalent to conda config --describe > ~/.condarc.

Config Modifiers

--get

Get a configuration value.

--append

Add one configuration value to the end of a list key.

--prepend, --add

Add one configuration value to the beginning of a list key.

--set

Set a boolean or string key

--remove

--stdin

Apply configuration information given in yaml format piped through stdin.

See conda config --describe or https://conda.io/docs/config.html for details on all the options that can go in .condarc.

Examples:

Display all configuration values as calculated and compiled:

conda config --show

Display all identified configuration sources:

conda config --show-sources

Describe all available configuration options:

conda config --describe

Add the conda-canary channel:

conda config --add channels conda-canary

Set the output verbosity to level 3 (highest) for the current activate environment:

conda config --set verbosity 3 --env

Add the 'conda-forge' channel as a backup to 'defaults':

conda config --append channels conda-forge
