Installing github version of package with Anaconda

I have Sympy installed with Anaconda, my version (of Sympy) is 0.7.6 .

I want to be able to use the git version of Sympy. Do you know how can I tell to Anaconda to substitute the 2 versions ?

  • Repositories of conda recipes and packages
  • Error during NearDuplicatesDetection 0.2.0 installation
  • Fatal error while installing keras
  • GraphLab Create Launcher installation error
  • What's the best practice for installing development versions of Python modules in Anaconda?
  • How to make Anaconda work behind HTTP proxy (not https)?
  • I’ve tried using the git clone command, but the Sympy folder from git and Anaconda doesn’t look the same at all, so I can’t replace one with another.

    git clone git://

    Is there a command like : “conda update-git sympy” ?

    I found that answer, but I didn’t understand how to do it.

    Possible to do "conda build" from github branch?

    UPDATE: I’ve used the following command and it worked

    python develop

    in my sympy directory.

    my previous answer was based on long time ago experiance
    this is the correct proccess (that worked for me based on the latest anaconda on a windows machine)

    I have updated the meta.yaml only with the following changes:
    changing to get the source from git
    including mpmath in build run and test
    removing some libraries of sympy that seemed to have been removed from the latest version

    i have all the files in the following gist

    hope it helps

    you can try the following:

    1. download the conda recipes (
    2. update the meta.yaml for getting the source from github as explained in the stack overflow question you linked to.
    3. run conda build.
