How do I keep track of pip-installed packages in an Anaconda (Conda) environment?
I've installed and have been using the Anaconda Python distribution, and I have started using the Anaconda (Conda) environment. I can use the standard
conda install... command to put packages from the distribution into my environments, but to use anything outside (i.e. Flask-WTF, flask-sqlalchemy, and alembic) I need to use
pip install in the active environment. However, when I look at the contents of the environment, either in the directory, or using
conda list these
pip installed packages don't show up.
pip freeze and
pip list just lists every package I've ever installed.
Is there a way to keep track of what is in each of my Anaconda
conda-env now does this automatically (if pip was installed with conda).
You can see how this works by using the export tool used for migrating an environment:
conda env export -n <env-name> > environment.yml
The file will list both conda packages and pip packages:
If you're looking to follow through with exporting the environment, move
environment.yml to the new host machine and run:
conda env create -f path/to/environment.yml
