Eclipse and PyDev#
These instructions refer to Anaconda Distribution exclusively, but will also work with Miniconda.
If you do not already have Eclipse and PyDev installed:
You may need to install the latest Java JDK/JRE before installing PyDev in order for PyDev to show up in the Eclipse Preferences menu after PyDev installation.
After you have Eclipse, PyDev, and Anaconda installed, set Anaconda Python as your default:
Open the Eclipse Preferences window:
In the PyDev list, select Interpreters, and then select Python Interpreter.
Click the Browse for python/pypy exe button:
In the Interpreter Name box, type
Browse to your Anaconda Python interpreter path. The interpreter you choose is related to your environment, so Eclipse will have access to all of the packages in that environment. To add new packages, you may need to
conda install package-namein your Anaconda Prompt or terminal.
Click the OK button:
In the next window, select the folders to add to the SYSTEM Python path:
You are now ready to use Anaconda Python with your Eclipse and PyDev installation.
