I can't figure out how to access anaconda from the mac terminal

i have the anaconda navigator installed on my computer, but idk how to access it or run conda commands from the terminal. someone please help!

I don’t have a mac, and I’m not sure how your install is setup, but with a fresh install you might try (commands after >):

#  Initialize conda in a bash shell
> conda init bash
> bash
# List all environments
(base) > conda env list
# Make a new environment
(base) > conda create --name myenv python=3.8 more_itertools
# Switch to an environment and install packages
(base) > conda activate myenv
(myenv) > conda list
