I use Conda everywhere at work, and wondered if I could get it installed on my new Raspberry Pi. There are Miniconda installers in Continuum’s archives for the Pi’s
armv7l architecture, but they’re pretty old; by default, you’ll end up with Python 3.4, and won’t be able to upgrade to a version lik 3.6 without some work.
While I was looking for a solution, I ran across Berryconda, a Conda distribution specifically for Raspbian Jessie (Buster seems to work too). To install Berryconda with Python 3.6:
curl -OL https://github.com/jjhelmus/berryconda/releases/download/v2.0.0/Berryconda3-2.0.0-Linux-armv7l.sh bash ./Berryconda3-2.0.0-Linux-armv7l.sh
You’ll need to follow the CLI prompts to finish the installation.
Alternatively, you could just add the following Berryconda channel to your Miniconda installation to get the same effect:
conda config --add channels rpi
