Getting PyCall to use the conda python on juliabox

pycall
juliabox

#1

How can I get the PyCall to use the conda python on juliabox?

The readme seems to indicated I should

ENV[“PYTHON”]=""

and then

Pkg.build(“PyCall”)

But pkg.build isn’t available on juliabox.


#2

The PyCall available on Juliabox is bound to the system default python on /usr/bin/python. And there is no (easy) way to change that.

What is it that you actually wanted to do? Any reason why you want conda in particular?

Hi,
Thanks for your reply.

I’d like to download opencv using conda.jl (which seemed to work) and utilize it through pycall.
