The conda mambabuild command¶
Boa comes with an extension to
conda build: the
conda mambabuild command. It replaces the
conda solver with the faster
mamba solver. To learn more about mamba, visit the mamba documentation.
There are some benefits:
Faster solve speed: for complicated environments, mamba is significantly faster than conda and will speed up builds.
Better error messages: when you have an un-solvable environment, conda will print a large error message that is often hard to decipher. Mamba prints something that is easier to understand.
Full compatibility with existing recipes and the conda-build command line arguments – since we’re “monkeypatching” conda-build and only replace the solver part
conda mambabuild, just install
boa and call
conda mambabuild with the same arguments that would be used with
conda build (replacing
$ conda mambabuild libsolv -m libsolv/.ci_support/linux_64_.yaml --no-test
Please refer to the conda-build documentation to learn about all the command line arguments that can be used.
