Managing Conda on AnVIL

Is there a Cloud Environment stack already set up for managing conda environments or does conda need to be manually installed for every new Cloud Environment?
Thanks!

[for] terra notebook runtimes, we don’t support conda […] welcome to contribute if they’d like to set up conda (might not be straightforward)….terra-docker/terra-jupyter-python at master · DataBiosphere/terra-docker · GitHub is where the setup would be

It is two steps to install in the AnVIL terminal:

wget https://repo.anaconda.com/miniconda/Miniconda3-latest-Linux-x86_64.sh
sh Miniconda3-latest-Linux-x86_64.sh

So, to confirm, conda needs to be manually installed for any Cloud Environment?

Kathryn, That does seem to be the case.

Conda is not available in any of the standard images, but you could install it using the miniconda script as needed or build a custom image with it preloaded (plus any other tools that you would like)

Good luck!
