Manual Compile/Install on Anaconda

So I want to compile from source through the anaconda environment. I went through the instructions for building from source, and ran everything through the anaconda prompt (on Windows). Everything compiled fine.

But now I need to add ngsolve (and whatever else) somehow so that I can run netgen from the anaconda prompt, and so Anaconda’s python can find ngsolve. I found something about “conda-develop” which is supposed to be able to do this. But I don’t know what to add. Any suggestions?

The reason I want to do this is so I can use the most recent (nightly) version. Should I just use the PIP installer? It says it also gives access to the nightly version.

Yes, I advise to use the pip installer, the current nightly is installed with

pip install ngsolve==6.2.2202.dev38

There is still an issue with versioning of the nightly builds (should be 6.2.2203.dev38 do be considered newer by python).
Once this is fixed you can update the nightly with:
pip install --upgrade --pre ngsolve


Thanks a lot. This was not obvious at all.
