Welcome to Enthought Canopy Documentation¶

Welcome to Enthought Canopy! Canopy is the next generation of the Enthought Python Distribution (EPD), adding an advanced text editor, integrated IPython console, graphical package manager and online documentation to Enthought’s proven Python distribution. The Canopy analysis environment streamlines data analysis, visualization, algorithm design and application development for scientists, engineers and analysts.


Canopy makes available a large number of third-party, open-source packages that are a part of the Python ecosystem. Enthought is grateful to the authors who have contributed their works for the common good. The license agreements for the individual packages, where available, are included in the Canopy installation directory under Third_Party_Pkgs. Any questions or corrections should be sent to support@enthought.com.
