I am trying to get QGIS to work with the Anaconda distribution of Python but I do not know how to get this to work.

In one of the answers it was mentioned that QGIS does not work with Anaconda and I wanted to double check this, just in case there have been any updates in the last few months.

If it is possible to do so, could you please direct me a resource that explains how one can go about doing this?

I am using Windows 7 (64 bit) with conda 3.7.1 and python 2.7.6.


Yes, QGIS is even available on Conda Forge: https://anaconda.org/conda-forge/qgis


From what I understand, QGIS on Windows uses a built-in interpreter, as does the Boundless Geo edition. Unless you can clarify what you're trying to do, then my best guess is no, Anaconda will not work with QGIS.
