Dependencies FAQ

Can I reuse environment created by Metaflow in another step or outside Metaflow?‚Äč

The built-in @pypi and @conda decorators require that you to specify the packages you want to install explicitly. As of today, there isn't a mechanism to refer to an existing environment directly.

However, an alternative @pypi decorator by Netflix supports named environments that allow you to refer to, share and reuse existing environments. Let us know on the Metaflow community Slack if you find this feature useful!
