Installing the Anaconda Python distribution

The Gurobi distribution includes a Python interpreter and a basic setof Python modules. While these are sufficient for building andrunning simple optimization models, they provide just a glimpse of thewealth of tools and modules that are available for Python. Thissection guides you through the steps involved in installing Anaconda,a widely-used Python platform that includes an Integrated DevelopmentEnvironment (Spyder), a notebook-style interface (Jupyter), and abroad set of Python modules. These tools can significantly increasethe interactivity and productivity of your Python model buildingexperience.

How to download and configure the Spyder IDE for numpy, matplotlib, and scientific use. PyCharm is a professional IDE Suite which is offered in two different versions.

Before we begin, we should note that Anaconda isn't your only choicein Python IDEs. Popular alternatives includeEric,iep,PyCharm, andPyDev. We won't be covering thedetails of installing these other options for use with Gurobi, but theAnaconda instructions that follow should provide a good outline forthe steps involved. We've found that Anaconda provides a nice balancebetween power and complexity, but we realize that people may look fordifferent things in their Python environments.
