Project environment variables (AEN 4.1.2)#

Some Python packages depend on environment variables for correct operation. For example, Theano requires the directory containing the CUDA compiler to be included in the $PATH environment variable for GPU acceleration to be enabled.

To change environment variables for all AEN apps, modify the project runtime configuration file .projectrc as described on the Compute Resource Config Application page.

This file is sourced when a user opens any AEN app. This includes the Jupyter app, and Jupyter kernels will be able to read these environment variables.

.projectrc sets several AEN internal environment variables and sets up the project environment, and can set additional user environment variables for that project.
