Today we’re introducing a new concept in Anaconda Cloud called labels. You may have known them previously as “channels,” but Continuum’s conda package management tool also has ‘channels’ that have a different meaning, thus we’ve decided to rename Anaconda Cloud ‘channels’ and launch labels to avoid confusion going forward.

Today we’re introducing a new concept in Anaconda Cloud called labels. You may have known them previously as “channels,” but Continuum’s conda package management tool also has ‘channels’ that have a different meaning, thus we’ve decided to rename Anaconda Cloud ‘channels’ and launch labels to avoid confusion going forward.

Labels allow you to organize your package files on Anaconda Cloud into categories. They are similar to folders, however, unlike folders, you can apply more than one label to a single file.

Why are labels useful?

We at Continuum are using labels internally to move our files through development, testing, and production lifecycle.

How do I find out more?

The documentation on labels, which can be found here, provides examples of how to create labels and use them in both the Anaconda Cloud web interface as well as the anaconda-client command-line tool.

What if I need more help?

If you have any questions about the new functionality, you can contact us at https://anaconda.org/contact , or report an issue at https://anaconda.org/contact/report
