What is a CONDA file?
A CONDA file is a software package that can be installed with Conda, a multiplatform package management system. It can contain system-level libraries, modules, executable programs, metadata, and/or other files. After installing a CONDA file, users can use the software it contains.
Packages used with Conda are saved in one of two formats: .TAR.BZ2 or CONDA. CONDA files consist of two compressed .TAR files saved in a .ZIP container. The TAR files are compressed using Zstandard (zstd) compression. Conda users can search for packages using either Conda itself or the online Anaconda package repository.
NOTE: Some CONDA files contain only metadata used by other programs. These files are referred to as metapackages.
How to open a CONDA file
You can use Conda (multiplatform) to install the package a CONDA file contains. To do so, use the command conda install path/to/yourpackage.conda.
