📦 Available software

A huge range of software applications, utilities, and libraries are installed and configured for you. Whether you need Rstudio or Spyder, Julia running in VSCode, popular R or Python packages, of fully configured Jupyter Notebooks, we have you covered.

The list of installed software is so large we make no effort to enumerate everything here, but you can always get an up-to-date list by opening a terminal on the Grid and running

conda list

Start with the expectation that all the software you need is already installed and ready to use. If that expectation is ever broken please put in a request using our discussion forum or issue tracker.

The most recent version of our software environment is activated when you log in to the HBS Grid via NoMachine and nothing further is required unless you wish to use an environment other than the default.

When logging in via SSH from a terminal (i.e., without NoMachine) you must explicitly activate the environment you wish to use after logging in. The default environment can be activated by running

ml rcs

Refer to the terminal environment documentation for details.
