Building Your Own Packages
You can easily build your own packages for
conda, and upload them to
anaconda.org, a free service for hosting packages for
well as other package managers. To build a package, create a recipe. See
AnacondaRecipes and conda-forge for many example recipes, and
conda-build documentation on how to build
To upload to anaconda.org, create an account. Then, install the
$ conda install anaconda-client $ anaconda login
Then, after you build your recipe
$ conda build <RECIPE_DIR>
you will be prompted to upload to anaconda.org.
To add your anaconda.org channel, or the channel of others to
conda so that
will find and install their packages, run
$ conda config --add channels https://conda.anaconda.org/<USERNAME>
USERNAME with the user name of the person whose channel you want
OSError: [Errno 36] File name too long:- This error has been seen on Linux computers with encrypted folders. The solution is to install
anacondato a location that is not encrypted. This error occurs because the encrypted form of the path that
conda-buildcreates can be too long.
Contributions to conda-build are welcome. See the contributing documentation for instructions on setting up a development environment.
