We will be making the conda/4.9.2 module the default module for loading (i.e., without a version number specified). By way of reminders,

  • If you need to reference the existing default Anaconda installation, add the version number to your module load statement in job scripts, i.e., module load conda/mini_py37_4.8.3 rather than just module load conda. Custom environments should interoperate with either version, though.
  • This module permits "conda activate" and "conda deactivate" functionality without conda init. Don't use conda init, as it breaks login shell setup.
  • Consider trying mamba instead of conda when setting up environments. For example, mamba install to add a package to a custom environment.

Julia modules are now available on Eagle. The module files are available at /nopt/nrel/ecom/modulefiles. Currently, versions 1.5.4 and 1.6.1 are available.

If you plan on using these module files regularly, you may wish to add this directory to your module search path with the command:
module use -a /nopt/nrel/ecom/modulefiles

You can add this command to your .bash_profile or .bashrc file with the following command:
echo 'module use -a /nopt/nrel/ecom/modulefiles' >> .bash_profile

(or .bashrc in place of .bash_profile).

Once your module path is updated, simply load the desired Julia version module:
module load julia
