Having troubles activating an environment

See original GitHub issue

Issue Description

I’m having trouble simply activating the base environment. Here is a snippet from my recipe:

    - uses: conda-incubator/setup-miniconda@v2
        auto-update-conda: true
        auto-activate-base: true
        activate-environment: base
    - run: conda info
    - run: conda env update -n base --file environment.yaml

I’m getting

Error: To activate "base" environment use the "auto-activate-base" action input!

How can I improve it to actually work?

@tdegeus because of how github actions work, you need to specify extra arguments for the actions as described in the README for the different shells.

      - name: Conda info
        shell: bash -l {0}
        run: conda info

If you do not use shell: bash -l {0} assuming you are using bash, then the action will not be able to activate the environments correctly.

This is a knowns limitation, you can read more here

Great @goanpeca , thanks for the help and for the PR!!

If I may give a personal experience on the readme while we close this question:

  • It would be great to document that the default environment name for my case is test, I don’t think I found that anywhere.
  • Personally it would (have) help(ed) me to have a few typical examples that are complete (e.g. a Python and a CMake test). Then some of the pitfalls that I encountered would have been more obvious to me (of course, everything is there, it’s just that one is from time to time a lazy reader, and it helps when things are presented ‘in your face’).
