“… we recommend always installing your packages inside a new environment instead of the base environment from anaconda/miniconda. Using envs make it easier to debug problems with packages and ensure the stability of your root env.” –


Avoid using pip install with a conda environment. If you encounter a python package that isn’t in conda-forge, consider submitting a recipe:
