Updating your local environment

There are a few new packages we'll need this week so we'll need to update your Python environment.

The environment.yml in this repository contains all of the necessary packages. To update your local environment:

Step 1. Download the environment.yml file in this repository to your computer.

Important: Make sure you download the raw version of the file from GitHub and that the file extension on your computer is .yml.

Step 2. From either the Anaconda Prompt (Windows) or Terminal app (MacOS):

conda env update --file environment.yml --name musa-620

where musa-620 should be the same name of the environment you have been using.

  • Click on the "Use this template" button to create a new repository.

  • Go to the Settings section of your new repository, scroll down to the "Github Pages" section, and select the "Master" as the branch to be used for GitHub pages. This will automatically build the website.
