# Create an environment with all development dependencies
conda env create -f environment.yml  # works with `mamba` too
conda activate scipy-dev

# Initialize git submodules
git submodule update --init

# Build SciPy for development work plus run tests
python    # Alternatively, it's fine to use `python develop`

# Install SciPy in develop mode in conda
conda develop .
