This package allows one to use conda as a binary provider for Julia. While other binary providers like Hombrew.jl, AptGet or WinRPM.jl are platform-specific, Conda.jl is a cross-platform alternative. It can also be used without administrator rights, in contrast to the current Linux-based providers.
Conda.jl primary audience is Julia packages developers who have a
dependency on some native library.
conda is a package manager which started as the binary package manager for the
Anaconda Python distribution, but it also provides arbitrary packages. Instead
of the full Anaconda distribution,
Conda.jl uses the miniconda Python
environment, which only includes
conda and its dependencies.
Conda.jl is NOT an alternative Julia package manager, nor a way to manage
Python installations. It will not use any pre-existing Anaconda or Python
installation on your machine.
You can install this package by running
Pkg.add("Conda") at the Julia prompt.
Basic package managing utilities are provided in the Conda module:
Conda.add(package): install a package;
Conda.rm(package): remove (uninstall) a package;
Conda.update(): update all installed packages to the latest version;
Conda.list(): list all installed packages.
Conda.add_channel(channel): add a channel to the list of channels;
Conda.channels(): get the current list of channels;
Conda.rm_channel(channel): remove a channel from the list of channels;
Conda.jl can be used as a
BinDeps with the
type. You first need to write a conda
recipe, and upload the
corresponding build to binstar. Then, add Conda in your
REQUIRE file, and add the following to your
using BinDeps @BinDeps.setup netcdf = library_dependency("netcdf", aliases = ["libnetcdf","libnetcdf4"]) ... using Conda provides(Conda.Manager, "libnetcdf", netcdf)
If your dependency is available in another channel than the default one, you should register that channel.
using Conda Conda.add_channel("my_channel") provides(Conda.Manager, "libnetcdf", netcdf)
If the binary dependency is only available for some OS, give this information to BinDeps:
provides(Conda.Manager, "libnetcdf", netcdf, os=:Linux)
Conda have been tested on Linux, OS X, and Windows. It should work on all these platforms.
