Previously I setup v0.7 using the instructions in the readme.
conda env create -f environment-cpu.yml
But for v1.x that file has been updated to say
for fastai-1.0+ edit "setup.py" and use "pip install -e ."
Does this mean I don’t use conda anymore? Everything I’ve seen before seemed to indicate conda OR pip.
I did run the pip install in the fastai dir and it seemed to work even though I didn’t have to edit setup.py. Maybe it just figures out that I’m on a CPU (macbook) and does the right thing?
I then cd to my course-v3 repo and it worked!
Anyway, thought others might find this helpful.

conda to install fastai 1.0.41 on my Mac into a
conda environment, although I’m not using a .yml file to do it.
after creating a
conda environment, activating it, and installing dependencies (using
conda or building from source), I installed the latest fastai using
conda install -c
I currently have fastai 1.0.41 installed, although I see the latest via that channel is now 1.0.42. I had to build PyTorch 1.0 from source though, as I wanted to use it with CUDA (with an eGPU), which complicated the setup. I haven’t tried using
pip or mixing use of
pip, so can’t comment on that.
