pip3 with Conda (if you still have Python 2.7 in your Windows PATH)

If you want to use pip3 with your Anaconda Python 3 installation, you can copy pip.exe and pip-script.py in [Python 3]/Scripts/ to pip3.exe and pip3-script.py in the same folder. These will then show up in your PATH, so running pip3 install [x] will now work, and running pip install [x] will still work for your Python 2 installation.

It seems like you can do a similar thing with conda, if you are forced to install it for Spyder. Rename conda.exe, conda-env.exe, etc. and add [Python 2 Miniconda]/Scripts to your path.

Raspberry PI – Email IP Address Script

I can’t take credit for most of this, but modified it slightly to include both network and public IP addresses.

With a Gmail address, you’ll need to allow access for less-secure apps at https://myaccount.google.com. No idea whether you can make it work with 2FA.

Put the script somewhere (home/pi/scripts/?) and call from etc/rc.local with a sleep 30 or similar command so you’re sure it boots up before trying to send.
