Getting things done with conda

Set up a testing environment substantively similar to the BlueSky working environment

conda create -n pydm_testing -c lightsource2-tag -c conda-forge -c pydm-dev collection pydm

then

conda activate pydm_testing

This sets up an environment in the home directory.

Installing into the current conda environment with sudo through the proxy

sudo https_proxy=http://proxy:8888 /opt/conda/bin/conda install -p /opt/conda_envs/collection-2019-1.2-bmm
