YXI install using conda install

This article describes the YXI installation process, but it was created in 2018 before conda became the virtual environment of choice, and updated in October 2019 after (at the same time as?) 2019.3 release.

However, based on the above linked document, the "\conda-meta\history" file, and the PythonDependencyInstall.log file, it appears that the environment is created with conda-script.py, but the requirements.txt is still installed with pip install.

 

Can this be modified to use conda install --file requirements.txt in ANY way? Open to ideas ... obviously it could be done manually or via script post install of the YXI. Are there any options to modify the way that YXIs are installed via the YXI file itself?

 

Thanks,
