Robust installation under MacOS

As a new user, I probably would have had questions soon enough. (Over on StackOverflow @jbednar has been kind enough to prod me along.)

However, the standard (?) conda installation fails for me on a current Mac and conda. Maybe you could quickly point me to a better way to install or grab a Docker image?

After the following:

conda update conda
conda create -n holoviz
conda activate holoviz
conda install -c pyviz holoviz
conda install geopandas geoviews

I get no error messages during installation, but even jupyter notebook fails, or an import geopandas in a Python console.

The import failed with Symbol not found: _sqlite3_column_table_name

Jupyter notebook failed with File "/Users/laszlo.sandor/miniconda3/envs/holoviz/lib/python3.6/site-packages/zmq/eventloop/", line 210, in install assert (not ioloop.IOLoop.initialized()) or \ AttributeError: type object 'IOLoop' has no attribute 'initialized'

Is there something I could change about package management, or something the pyviz channel should?

Many thanks for HoloViz, it has great promise!
