Getting started with mamba¶
For new users¶
We strongly recommend to start from
mambaforge, a community project of the conda-forge community.
You can download
mambaforge for Windows, macOS and Linux under this link.
Mambaforge comes with the popular
conda-forge channel preconfigured, but you can modify the configuration to use any channel you like.
After successful installation, you can use the mamba commands as described in How to Use.
For conda users¶
If you are already a conda users, very good! Using mamba will feel natural.
To get mamba, install it into the base environment from the
conda install mamba -n base -c conda-forge
There is little difference between using conda & mamba. You can swap almost all commands:
mamba install ...
mamba create -n ... -c ... ...
The one difference is that you should still use
conda for activation and deactivation.
