Finally got round to installing Anaconda (the Python distribution) on CentOS. I followed this article at Linux Hint. Launched Anaconda Navigator from Terminal, then created new environment. Installed the git and Jupyter packages into it. Opened a terminal window in the new environment. Everything is working fine so far. Last year had random crashes when running Anaconda on OS X, then I installed it on Ubuntu in Virtual Box. Anaconda worked fine, except for the slowness which I expected from a virtual environment. Now that I’ve installed it on a machine dedicated to CentOS, I’m expecting it to work ideally.
Halfway through installing Hexo on CentOS 7. I’ve installed the utilities.
17 Feb: install completed.
