Python - Anaconda
« on: May 05, 2019, 07:35:13 am »
if you want to do scientific computing, the Anaconda Python distribution https://www.anaconda.com/distribution/ looks attractive, the installation size is big but it includes all you need.
any thoughts ?

argh--huhhh
big crap over bigger crap
For anyone who prefer bigger snake use Anaconda  ;D
I am always in "pissed off" mode when i see something like that.
And i cannot believe that people are soo naive ...and yes they are.
So fine ...guys from Anaconda simply pack all python-oriented things into one big package
and ask for money for that ..good.... uffffffffffffff.

jebi ga jbk ...sorry for my bad attitude about this  :-\

better look here:
https://winpython.github.io/

Aurel, I don't see a major size difference between Anaconda and WinPython, Winpython64-3.7.2.0.exe 580 MB vs 662 MB for Anaconda, I have not looked at the package differences, but more than likely Anaconda's larger size is due to more lib's and or IDE's included.
besides, WinPython is Windows only, my main platform is MasOS, though I have virtual machines for Windows and Linux.

MasOS ....hmm
MacOs...ok ?

Winpython is portable ...
so for windows l(users) try PortablePython from sourceforge and us PIP

So..soo..sooo  >:(

damn you tomaaz ..it works!  ;D
Ok..this Portable Python 2.7.1 works..
I found matplotlib site with many examples and on of them is here .
it is close to what i want - patch antenna current density plot.
This example is about gama ..but is close to what i need ..i hope.
Well at first...i dont have matplotlib inside Portable Python 
so i click on tools in editor and voila ..there is lib downloader..
that is very very nice..i respect what authors of this editor made  :)
So downloading goes well and download whole set of about 8MB..not to big!
Yes it looks that there is no need for large packages like WinPython or Anaconda or Python(x,y)
gees one of them is 800MB  :o

So i recommend this one for windows.

@jbk 
I am not sure why you need Anaconda on MacOS ?
Maybe you can explain?
