The Enthought Python Distribution (EPD) is the time-tested, reliable scientific and analytic Python distribution that has been installed across hundreds of thousands of machines over the last decade
Now with over 450 free pre-built and tested scientific and analytic Python 2 and Python 3 packages, this time-tested collection provides users a streamlined way to deploy Python distributions. Users have a choice of two tools to access EPD in the way that best meets their individual needs: Enthought Canopy (GUI) or the new Enthought Deployment Manager (EDM) (command line).
What is Enthought Deployment Manager (EDM)?
EDM is Enthought’s next generation environment and application manager. For long-time EPD users, you’ll recognize EDM and its command-line tool
edm as a replacement for Enstaller and its
