If you’re running multiple AI platforms …and there’s a new open source and commercial app/plugin everyday you’re going to run into Python library conflicts galore.

1) Download and install python & anaconda using sys path options
2) Bang out a Python virtual environment with a specific Python version in the mini conda terminal

$ conda create --name MY-ENV python=3.10.6
$ conda activate MY-ENV

3) Then from with your Python based open source application directory run :

$ pip install -r requirements.txt

Whereas “MY-ENY” is an arbitrary name you want.
Requirements.txt is a standard file of libraries released in most python apps.

To disable all that mojo
$ conda deactivate MY-ENV
To uninstall all that junk
$ pip uninstall -r requirements.txt
