How to change jupyter kernel from Python 2 to python 3?
Follow the link for managing python. If you use python 2, then install python 3 by using this command.
conda create -n py36 python=3.6 anaconda
After installing python 3, activate python 3 by using this command
Then open jupyter notebook, you will find python on your kernel.
You can do this with the following steps:
conda create -n py36 'python=3.6' ipykernel #Replace 3.6 with desired version.
To activate installed jupyter kernal you need run,
source activate py36
python -m ipykernel install --user
The interesting part: if you want to switch between kernels (py2-py3) in the same notebook, you need to run,
conda install nb_conda
However, if at any point you realize that some of the modules are not available, for that you need to check Anaconda Python version.
python - version
if it is not python 3.x, you need to run
conda create -n py36 python=3.6 anaconda source active py36
I hope it helps and enjoy switching python versions in the same notebook. You can try to print something in both python2 and python 3.
