Although the installation process is straight forward, if you feel the need to refer to the official installation instructions you can find the links below:
Download the Anaconda Installer
Note: Anaconda, by default only installs for the current user and adds itself to the beginning of your PATH in order to take precedence for commands. If you need to install for multiple users, there are instructions here.
Because Anaconda Navigator is installed as an application, but has dependencies on changes made to environment variables, you may need to reboot for everything to work properly.
$ which python /Users/USER_NAME/anaconda3/bin/python
On both Windows and Mac OSX, the Anaconda installation should have installed a Anaconda Navigator application. Verify that it’s there and start it. After it’s started you should see something similar to the following:
$ conda list | head -8 # Should output something similar to the following # packages in environment at /Users/rwiles/anaconda3: # # Name Version Build Channel alabaster 0.7.10 py36h174008c_0 anaconda-client 1.6.14 py36_0 anaconda-navigator 1.8.7 py36_0 anaconda-project 0.8.2 py36h9ee5d53_0 appnope 0.1.0 py36hf537a9a_0 $ which python # Should now find Python in the Anaconda directory /Users/USER_HOME/anaconda3/bin/python
