    11= Installing GSAS-II via conda (Anaconda Python) =
    22
    3 Python enthusiasts are likely quite familiar with the [https://www.anaconda.com/what-is-anaconda/ Anaconda package manager]. GSAS-II can be installed using a simple conda command, after installing [https://www.anaconda.com/download anaconda] or [https://conda.io/miniconda.html miniconda]. Note that Python 2.7 or 3.6+ can be used, but not all platforms/combinations have been tested. We recommend Python 3.7 at present. When this conda package is used, it ensures that the [https://gsas-ii.readthedocs.io/en/latest/packages.html packages required by GSAS-II] are installed, including subversion, and then subversion is used to download the latest version of GSAS-II from the APS server. This download will fail if your computer network

    44requires a proxy ([ProxyInfo more info on proxies here]), but rerunning the bootstrap.py command (see bottom of this page)
    55will work after the proxy information is entered.

    7 Use this command to install GSAS-II: 
    8 
    9    
    107{{{
    11 conda install gsas2pkg -c briantoby
     8conda install gsas2pkg=1.1 -c briantoby
    129}}}
    1310 
     11To use a separate conda environment for GSAS-II, use these commands to install GSAS-II:
     12
     13{{{
     14conda create -n GSASII
     15conda install gsas2pkg=1.1 -c briantoby -n GSASII
     16}}}
     17Note that you may need to activate the environment manually before starting GSAS-II.

     20After the conda install completes, one of the following occurs:
     21
     22 * On the Mac, an app is created that can be dragged to the doc (or create a shortcut to GSAS-II.app and drag that anywhere).
     23
     24 * On Windows a desktop shortcut is created.
     25
     26 * On Linux (at present) the command-line is needed to start GSAS-II:
     27{{{
     28<condapath>/bin/python <condapath>/GSASII/GSASII.py
     29}}}
     30
     31**Activating**:
    1432If you get an error that conda is an unknown command, this means anaconda/miniconda is not in your path (which is my recommended way to install anaconda) and you will need to first use the ananconda activate command:

    2543
    26 After the conda install completes, one of the following occurs:
     44With GSAS-II in an environment, the activate command becomes
     45`...activate GSASII`
    2746
    28  * On the Mac, an app is created that can be dragged to the doc (or create a shortcut to GSAS-II.app and drag that anywhere).
     47**Python 2.7**: We are no longer confirming that all sections of GSAS-II are compatible with Python 2.7 (but will usually fix problems, if reported). An older version of gsas2pkg is compatible with Python 2.7:
    2948
    30  * On Windows a desktop shortcut is created.
    31 
    32  * On Linux (at present) the command-line is needed to start GSAS-II:
    3349{{{
    34 <condapath>/bin/python <condapath>/GSASII/GSASII.py
     50conda install gsas2pkg=1.0.6 -c briantoby

    37 This mechanism has gotten some use since created (June 2018)
    38 and no problems have been reported, but feedback is welcome.
