Conda is a town and municipality in Cuanza Sul Province in Angola.
Conda is an open source, cross-platform, language-agnostic package manager and environment management system that installs, runs, and updates packages and their dependencies. Conda allows users to easily
- install different versions of binary software packages and any required libraries appropriate for their computing platform
- switch between package versions
- download and install updates from a software repository.
Conda is written in the Python programming language, but can manage projects containing code written in other languages (e.g., R), including multi-language projects. Conda can install the Python programming language, while similar Python-based cross-platform package managers (such wheel or pip) cannot.
Continuum Analytics maintains Conda (among other open source tools), which it releases under the Berkeley Software Distribution License.
Conda is known to have achieved funding and support from DARPA.
