Automated Conda Setup
Michelle L. Gill
Regularly updated Gist located here.
This bash script will download and setup a Conda environment on Mac OS X or Linux using a specified Python version (2.7, 3.6) and packages. The Conda installation path and environment name can also be specified. All settings are input at the beginning of the script (see below).
If the Conda directory exists and can be determined to be a Conda installation, a new environment will be created. If the directory does exist but does not appear to be a Conda installation, the script will quit to avoid accidentally overwriting a file.
