Miniconda has been added to the Python Buildpack
Over the last few weeks the Buildpacks team has experimented with different
methods of getting the Python buildpack working with various data science
dependencies (ex: sci-py, num-py, sklearn). We believe we have found a
solution that does not create significant challenges and fulfills the
underlying goal of enabling these dependencies in a native CF application.
We have included the addition of Miniconda into the newest version [1
the python-buildpack and urge you to give it a try. To do so, include an
environment.yml  in your app and cf push *or* try out this sample app [3
We're very excited about this addition and note that this is our first step
towards providing the functionality. As always, we're interested in
obtaining feedback and pull requests for improvement.
