Anaconda

For easy install and use of python and libraries install Anaconda.

I struggled to install Python for several days and many other packages and it wasn\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'t successful because I hadn\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'t installed the service pack 1 update for Windows 7.

To install Anaconda go to the following website:

https://www.continuum.io/downloads

 r -> y removes the output from notebook

after you downloaded and installed Anaconda, to update all the packages, open the windows command prompt and type:

 

conda update conda
conda update anaconda

conda update --all

 

 Some R packages (not as useful as R)

conda install rpy2
conda install scikit-learn

 

A package to work with MS Excel

conda install openpyxl

https://openpyxl.readthedocs.io/en/default/#module-openpyxl

 

 

 

 

After updating the size of anaconda folder was over 5.5 Gigabytes and I ran the following codes to clean it:

coda clean --tarballs

 conda clean --packages

Also you can use the following IDEs to use python

 

 

pip install lxml
pip install html5lib
pip install BeautifulSoup4

 

 

install ipyparallel
