But that is the whole point I am trying to make. Anaconda (or Miniconda) is not a single massive monolithic library, it is a package management system for a Python milieu. You have a single command conda that allows you to get the bits you want. It is just pip on steroids, but with proper curation. Sadly they are still on Qt4, but… The analogy to Miniconda in Python is Dub in D. The analogy to Anaconda in Python is downloading the whole of the Dub repository before doing anything. Actually Dub is more like Pip. Continuum Analytics put a lot of effort into managing their separate repository. Very little crap, lots of good stuff. But focused on data science. -- Russel. ============================================================================= Dr Russel Winder t: +44 20 7585 2200 voip: sip:russel.win...@ekiga.net 41 Buckmaster Road m: +44 7770 465 077 xmpp: rus...@winder.org.uk London SW11 1EN, UK w: www.russel.org.uk skype: russel_winder
