Center Announcements

New Conda/Python Modules on Frontier and Summit

The OLCF is happy to announce a conda module available on Frontier and Summit based on Miniforge (https://github.com/conda-forge/miniforge). Miniforge is similar to our older Anaconda modules but targets the conda-forge channel by default. See our documentation for more details about module usage: https://docs.olcf.ornl.gov/software/python/index.html

Current Python workflows are not impacted and do not need to be changed. However, users are still recommended to use the new Miniforge module if possible.
