How to add a folder with Python packages to Anaconda path
To permanently include packages or folder into the
PYTHONPATH of an Anaconda environment, activate the Conda environment and use
[conda develop](https://docs.conda.io/projects/conda-build/en/latest/resources/commands/conda-develop.html) to add the path permanently to the
PYTHONPATH of the Conda environment.
conda develop /PATH/TO/YOUR/FOLDER/WITH/MODULES
This command will create file named
conda.pth file the site-packages folder of your environment.
As an alternative, you can just add a
conda.pth file in
~/anaconda3/envs/YOUR_ENV/lib/pythonX.X/site-packages with the folder that you want to include in your
PYTHONPATH. The filename can be different as long as it has the
pth extension. Every line of the file can contain a folder.
You can also modify your
.pth files to add new folders or remove them from your Conda
