Installing with conda¶
To install conda packages, in the terminal or an Anaconda Prompt, run:
conda install [packagename]
During the install process, files are extracted into the specified
environment, defaulting to the current environment if none is specified.
Installing the files of a conda package into an
environment can be thought of as changing the directory to an
environment, and then downloading and extracting the artifact
and its dependencies---all with the single
conda install [packagename] command.

conda installa package that exists in a channel and has no dependencies, conda:
looks at your configured channels (in priority)
reaches out to the repodata associated with your channels/platform
parses repodata to search for the package
once the package is found, conda pulls it down and installs
