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 ?
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://github.com/sympy/sympy.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 setup.py develop
in my sympy directory.
Thanks to @asmeurer

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:
- download the conda recipes (https://github.com/conda/conda-recipes)
- update the meta.yaml for getting the source from github as explained in the stack overflow question you linked to.
- run conda build.
