The quantecon environment#

There is a environment.yml file available to setup a general anaconda environment that can be used to build all quantecon projects.


If you are using an Apple running on arm64 such as the M1 or M2 you will need the following additional steps before setting up your environment.

  1. Ensure you install the M1 version of Anaconda Python.

  2. Install homebrew to install some binary packages

  3. Run

    brew install cbc pkg-config

To use it:

  1. Download the environment.yml file

  2. Use conda to build the environment using:

    conda env create -f environment.yml
  3. Activate the evironment using:

    conda activate quantecon


If you already have a quantecon environment you can remove it using:

conda env remove -n quantecon

and then reinstall a fresh environment.

It is also possible to update your quantecon environment using:

conda env update --file environment.yml  --prune
