Building Your Own Packages

You can easily build your own packages for conda, and upload them to, a free service for hosting packages for conda, as 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 recipes.

To upload to, create an account. Then, install the anaconda-client and login

$ conda install anaconda-client
$ anaconda login

Then, after you build your recipe

$ conda build <RECIPE_DIR>

you will be prompted to upload to

To add your channel, or the channel of others to conda so that conda install will find and install their packages, run

$ conda config --add channels<USERNAME>

(replacing USERNAME with the user name of the person whose channel you want to add).


  • OSError: [Errno 36] File name too long: - This error has been seen on Linux computers with encrypted folders. The solution is to install miniconda or anaconda to a location that is not encrypted. This error occurs because the encrypted form of the path that conda-build creates can be too long.

Getting Help
