Install Miniconda on CentOS 7 / RedHat 7

This post introduces how to install Miniconda on CentOS 7 / RedHat 7. 

(Tested on CentOS 7 / RedHat 7, but it should work for Ubuntu OS as well. Note that you can install Miniconda / Anaconda onto your Linux OS even when you are not a sudo / root user.)

(For installing Miniconda on Mac, check out this post.)

(For commonly used conda commands check this post.)

(For the comparison among Anaconda, Miniconda, and Virtualenv with pip, check this post.)

Step 1: Open a Terminal window, type

$ wget https://repo.continuum.io/miniconda/Miniconda3-latest-Linux-x86_64.sh

Step2:  Run the following bash script to install it

$ sh Miniconda3-latest-Linux-x86_64.sh

Step3: To make the changes take effect, close the terminal and open a new Terminal window. 

Step 4: Test conda

In the newly open Terminal window, type the following

$ conda -V

# If you see something like the following, it means Miniconda is successfully installed on your Linux OS.

conda 4.5.11

Step 5: Uninstalling Miniconda

To uninstall Python Anconda/Miniconda, we just simply remove the installation folder and remove the environment variables set in .bashrc file. For my installation, it will be just like this.

$ rm -rf /usr/local/miniconda/
$ rm -rf /usr/local/anaconda/

Then, you can edit the ~/.bashrc file and remove the following entries added for Anaconda/Miniconda directory from your PATH environment variable

$ export PATH=" /usr/local/anaconda/bin:$PATH" 
$ export PATH=" /usr/local/miniconda3/bin:$PATH"
