The Gurobi distribution includes a Python interpreter and a basic set of Python modules. While these are sufficient for building and running simple optimization models, they provide just a glimpse of the wealth of tools and modules that are available for Python.
This section guides you through the steps involved in installing Anaconda, a modern open source analytics platform powered by Python. Continuum Analytics is the creator and driving force of Anaconda. Anaconda includes hundreds of Python packages by default, such as an Integrated Development Environment (Spyder) and the leading web interactive notebook for data science (Jupyter). Anaconda significantly increases the interactivity and productivity of your Python model and application building experience.
