Specifying a Python 2 environment with
We can specify various runtime parameters with a
runtime.txt file. In this
repository, we demonstrate how to install python 2 with the environment.
If you specify
- A python3 environment is created & installed (this is what the notebook runs from)
- A python2 environment is created and registered
- The contents of
requirements.txtare installed into the python2 environment
important: Make sure that you save your notebooks with a python 2 kernel activated, as this defines which kernel Binder will use when a notebook is opened.
If you also wish to install python 3 dependencies, you may do so
by including a file called
requirements3.txt. The packages
inside will be installed into the python 3 environment.
