Using Anaconda python library in Atom


#1

I have installed Anaconda on my Windows 10 system. Now I want to use python in newly installed Atom IDE. Atom cannot find python directory as it’s not added to the environment variable path.

I installed python 3.6 separately and added it to path variables to overcome this issue. However, I still run into issues like missing .dll files. I found that this will continue as long as there Anaconda is installed on the system.

Is there a way I can add Anaconda python path to Atom or should I just add Anaconda library to path variables (which is not recommended by Anaconda)?

Do you have a source for this information?

“Adding to Atom” is meaningless since Atom has no concept of Python except how to highlight it. You can add the Anaconda path to the package you’re using to run Python, for sure in the case of script and probably for most others.

should I just add Anaconda library to path variables (which is not recommended by Anaconda)?

Does the Anaconda documentation say to not do this, or does it simply omit discussion of environment variables?

I want to do the same, did you get a solution?
