Today I finally grew tired of running
activate jupyterlab-data-explorer ad nauseum, so I set up my fish shell to auto activate a conda environment, whenever you change directories, based on the name of the folder:
function __auto-conda --on-variable PWD --description 'Auto activate conda env based on directory name' status --is-command-substitution; and return set __env_name (basename $PWD) if test \( -d "/usr/local/miniconda3/envs/$__env_name" \) -a \( __env_name != "$CONDA_DEFAULT_ENV" \) conda activate "$__env_name" end end # run on startup as well __auto-conda
It amazes me how long I have put up with this inconvenience!
This dovetails nicely with my last post on displaying your conda environment in the iTerm status bar.
