Rename an existing conda environment
One workaround is to create clone environment, and then remove original one: (remember about deactivating current environment with deactivate on Windows and source deactivate on macOS/Linux)
conda create --name new_name --clone old_name --offline #use --offline flag to disable the redownload of all your packages conda remove --name old_name --all # or its alias: `conda env remove --name old_name`
There are several drawbacks of this method:
- time consumed on copying environment’s files,
- temporary double disk usage.
