I was trying to get rid of the
ImportError: attempted relative import with no known parent package
And followed the instructions here, which basically say to create a
setup.py file with the following:
from setuptools import setup, find_packages setup(name = 'practice01', packages = find_packages())
And then run
python setup.py install from Conda command line. Package works, no import errors now. But when I do
conda list I don’t see "practice01." Closed/reopened session, everything still works, but it’s still not on the conda list. What does
python setup.py install do? Does it not install a package? Totally new to this and learning how to make packages.
To see a list of all packages installed in your Python environment, you can use the
pip freeze command instead of
conda list as it only shows packages that have been installed using the
conda command. also notice that
python setup.py install just install the package on your current env.
