Changing the environment e.g. adding xgboost


Is there a way to add some packages to the environment? It seems that none of the available envs contains xgboost.

Edit: !pip install xgboost worked in this scenario, but the installation took awfully long time.


For now you can only use the environments we have provided. You can not upload your own docker images or create your own definition of environment with additional packages.

Having said that, it seems that xgboost is widely used, so we may consider adding it to base image. I will discuss it within the team.

For now you are left with !pip install xgboost in notebooks and --pip-requirements mechanism in experiments.
