Conda Python API

As of conda 4.4, conda can be installed in any environment, not just environments with names starting with _ (underscore). That change was made, in part, so that conda can be used as a python library.

There are three supported public modules. We support

import conda.cli.python_api. import conda.api import conda.exports The first two should have very long-term stability. The third is guaranteed to be stable throughout the lifetime of a feature release series–i.e. minor version number.

As of conda 4.5, we do not support pip install conda. However, we are considering that as a supported bootstrap method in the future.
