Welcome to mamba’s documentation!

Mamba is a fast, robust, and cross-platform package manager that runs on Windows, OS X and Linux (ARM64 and PPC64LE included). Mamba is fully compatible with conda packages and supports most of conda’s commands. In fact, mamba was conceived as a drop-in replacement for conda, offering higher speed and more reliable environment solutions.

We recommend to start from mambaforge or install mamba through conda install mamba -n base -c conda-forge, if you’re already a conda user.

Mamba also offers a flavor specifically for the CI use-case (micromamba). Micromamba is a single-file executable that comes with everything to start installing packages.
