Is it good practice to use virtual environments like conda for ros software development? The issue i faced: 1. While publishing and deploying the ros package with conda environment with snap. 2. While using conda different modules installed on different conda environment can't be used at same time. Here is one issue i faced while working with conda for differetn python module development.

To avoid strange problem and incompatibilities, it is better to avoid mixing software that uses apt-provided dependencies and conda-provided dependencies, as these are basically completely different distributions of software, its own with its (possible mutually incompatible) version of basic libraries such as the C++ standard library, Python, OpenCV, etc etc.

If you really need to do that, I suggest to check . Furthermore, if you want to install ROS directly in conda as any other conda package, feel free to check .
