Datalore 2024.3 Help

Set up environment for a new notebook

If you choose to code in Python, you can manage Python packages for your notebook.


By default, Datalore uses the pip package manager with a standard set of all popular data science packages.

Your other environment options are:

  • Pip - minimal: compared to the default option, contains only the most basic packages necessary to have the notebook running.

  • Conda - minimal: suitable for non-commercial purposes. To use Conda for commercial projects, buy a license. Find out more at

To switch from the default environment, do the following:

  1. Go to the Environment tab of the New notebook dialog.

  2. Do one of the following:

    • Select the Pip - minimal option from the list under Choose base environment.

    • Select the Conda option under Select a package manager.

  3. (Optional) To view the preinstalled packages, click the Show packages button next to the environment option.
