How to install python3.9 with conda?
You can now directly create python 3.9 environment using the following command
conda create -n py39 python=3.9
py39 - environment name
Python 3.9 is now available in conda-forge.
To download the tar file - https://anaconda.org/conda-forge/python/3.9.0/download/linux-64/python-3.9.0-h852b56e_0_cpython.tar.bz2
Anaconda Page - https://anaconda.org/conda-forge/python
As pointed out in the comments, python 3.9 is not yet there on any channels. So, it cannot be install yet via conda.
Instead, you can download the python 3.9 executable and install it.
Once the installation is done, a new executable will be created for python 3.9 and pip 3.9 will be created.
python3.7 python3.7-config python3.7m python3.7m-config python3.9 python3.9-config
pip pip3 pip3.7 pip3.8 pip3.9 pipreqs
In order to install ipython for python 3.9,
pip3.9 install ipython
On 6-Oct-2020, Python 3.9 was made available on conda-forge: https://anaconda.org/conda-forge/python. However, most of the other packages (including some of the essentials to create a basic environment) didn't explicitly support Python 3.9 yet.
However (as of 15-Oct-2020), the basic dependencies appear to have been fixed and the following command now works:
conda create -c conda-forge python=3.9 -n py39-demo
You can now simply just run
conda create --name myenv python=3.9
And it will create your python 3.9 virtual environment simply.
