Install applications with conda

Project description

release Build Status Build Status

Install applications using conda

Tiny conda extension (actually a commandline tool using conda) to install applications.

The main advantages are:

  • very simple cross-platform installation commands for Windows, macOS and Linux (and different shells, as bash, fish and zsh).

  • the applications are installed in isolated conda environments.

  • commands provided by the applications are available system-wide, i.e. when the associated conda environment is not activated.

Installation of conda-app

conda-app needs to be installed in the base conda environment:

conda activate base
pip install conda-app


Note that conda-app needs Python >= 3.6, so if your base environment still uses Python 2.7, you first need to update it with conda update conda and conda install python=3.


With the conda-forge channel added (conda config --add channels conda-forge), one should be able to install Mercurial (plus few important extensions) with:

conda-app install mercurial

This should also work:

conda-app list
conda-app uninstall mercurial

Open a new terminal (on Windows, the "Conda Prompt") and the Mercurial command hg should be available.
