Caching installed pip/conda packages

October 23, 2019 at 12:36pm
Hi team , I'm trying to find a way to persist installed pip/conda packages in my env. Currently, I have bash script to install pip packages . This script is executed as part of .gitpod.yml.
Right now, all the installed pip packages disappear after I reopen my env. Just wondering if you could help

Hi ! In the default workspace image we’ve configured pip to install in a user site by default, and the site’s location is under /workspace to guarantee that it preserved between restarts.
You mention conda. Could you share some info, maybe the repo if it’s public. I’m happy to help you to configure it accordingly.

Hi Alex, I have resolved the issue by creating a conda env in workspace. This ensures that all conda packages persist through different sessions

That's good news! If it's a public repo, do you want to share details on this? It would be awesome for other Gitpod users how work with conda environments.

Just started working with Conda, any suggestions for installing correctly. Any repos I can look at?
