Running a project

Run all of the commands on this page from within the project directory.

To run a project:

  1. If necessary, extract the files from the project archive file—.zip, .tar.gz or .tar.bz2.

  2. If you do not know the exact name of the command you want to run, list the commands in the project.

  3. If there is only one command in the project, run:

    anaconda-project run
  4. If there are multiple commands in the project, include the command name:

    anaconda-project run command-name

    NOTE: Replace command-name with the actual command name.

    EXAMPLE: To run a command called “showdata”, which could download data, install needed packages and run the command:

    anaconda-project run showdata
  5. For a command that runs a Bokeh app, you can include options for bokeh serve in the run command.

    EXAMPLE: The following command passes the --show option to the bokeh serve command, to tell Bokeh to open a browser window:

    anaconda-project run plot --show

When you run a project for the first time, there is a short delay as the new dedicated project is created, and then the command is executed. The command will run much faster on subsequent runs because the dedicated project is already created.

In your project directory, you now have an envs subdirectory. By default every project has its own packages in its own sandbox to ensure that projects do not interfere with one another.
