Review the system requirements listed below before installing Anaconda Individual Edition. If you don’t want the hundreds of packages included with Anaconda, you can install Miniconda, amini version of Anaconda that includes just conda, its dependencies, and Python.
Miniconda is a free minimal installer for conda. It is a small, bootstrap version of Anaconda that includes only conda, Python, the packages they depend on, and a small number of other useful packages, including pip, zlib and a few others. Use the conda install command to install 720+ additional conda packages from the Anaconda repository. I don't know about other people but I've had issue downloading conda/miniconda etc for a few hours now. For some reason it decided to install at /opt when using the graphical installer (i.e. I've been through the uninstall here How to uninstall Anaconda completely from macOS and additionall did an rm -rf /opt command. But as soon as I need to install certain packages that I use for work — like SimpleITK — Miniforge does not manage to install it. It is a bit of a gamble. At some point, I realized that I can install and use both, Miniforge and Miniconda on the same system. After installing Miniforge the initialization command will be set in your.bashrc.
The Earth Engine Python API can be installed to a local machine via conda, a Python package and environment manager. Conda is bundled with Anaconda and Miniconda Python distributions. Anaconda is a data science programming platform that includes 1500+ packages, while Miniconda includes only conda and its dependencies. Anaconda is distinguished in its many functional abilities, which include managing system packages, computing and processing large-scale data, influencing predictive analytics, and performing programming in the Python language. This article shows you how to install Anaconda in Ubuntu 20.04.
On Windows, macOS, and Linux, it is best to install Anaconda for the local user,which does not require administrator permissions and is the most robust type ofinstallation. However, if you need to, you can install Anaconda system wide,which does require administrator permissions.
