To create a conda environment, you must first install conda or mamba, the two most popular conda clients.
After installing conda, you can create a new environment and install
manim inside by running
conda create -n my-manim-environment conda activate my-manim-environment conda install -c conda-forge manim
Since all dependencies (except LaTeX) are handled by conda, you don’t need to worry about needing to install additional dependencies.
In order to make use of Manim’s interface to LaTeX to, for example, render equations, LaTeX has to be installed as well. Note that this is an optional dependency: if you don’t intend to use LaTeX, you don’t have to install it.
You can install LaTeX by following the optional dependencies steps for Windows, Linux or macOS.
