Brew Install Anaconda

  • So the first step is trying to install Anaconda with homebrew via brew cask install anaconda, but get this warn information while installing: Cask anaconda installs files under / usr / local. The presence of such files can cause warnings when running ' brew doctor ', which is considered to be a bug in Homebrew - Cask.
  • Brew install gcc If you are using Anaconda, make and activate a new Anaconda environment: conda create -n nameofenvironment python=3.8 conda activate nameofenvironment.

Here's how to install Jupyter with python and R integration on OSX using Homebrew.

Read this tutorial on how to install Homebrew on OS X.

Anaconda is a package manager, an environment manager, and Python distribution that contains a collection of many open source packages. An installation of Anaconda comes with many packages such as numpy, scikit-learn, scipy, and pandas preinstalled and is also the recommended way to install Jupyter Notebooks.

Mac Os X come with Pythong 2.7 pre-installed but many Machine Learning packages are progressing to Python 3.x. Therefore, it's recommended you start using Python 3 and the best way to do that is to first install pyenv version manager. This will allow you to install any version of Python you'd like.

First update Homebrew package manager.

Install pyenv version manager.

Install Python 3.x using pyenv. You can see a list of version from the Python website.

Double check your work.

Brew install anaconda update

You'll also need to configure your ~/.bash_profile.


If you need more help with pyenv, I suggest you reading my other article titled Installing multiple versions of python on OS X using Homebrew

If you only want to use Python 3.x for a specific project, then cd to your specific directory and type:

If you'd prefer to just have Python 3.x installed globally throughout your operating system, then type:

Jupyter is an acronym for Julia, Python and R but these days, other languages are also included such as Ruby.

Now it's time to start the jupyter notebook.

You're Done Installing Jupyter. Please proceed if you now want to use R language with Jupyter.

If you're struggling to get configure bash profile, this has also worked for a few different developers.

Although it takes a little bit of extra work to get R working with Jupyter, it's totally worth it. Otherwise, if you want to import data, clean it, structure it and process it, you'll have to have to learn all of these other Python libraries to do what R does natively.

  • NumPy supports scientific computing and linear algebra support.
  • Pandas provide data frames which make it easy to access and analyze data. This is a data manipulation tool.
  • Mat plotlib is a 2D publication library that produces high quality graphics.
  • Scikit-learn's purpose is to support machine learning and therefore it's used for many of the tasks performed routinely in machine learning. A few key features are:
    • It works well with the libraries stated above.
    • It helps integrate the algorithms we will use for predictive models.
    • Methods that will help us pre-process data.
    • Methods for helping us measure the performance of our models.
    • Methods for splitting data into test sets
    • Methods for pre-processing data before training.
    • Methods for creating trained models, tuning models and identifying which features within the models are important.
