  3. wget "Link-to-conda-installation"
  4. bash Miniconda*
  5. Follow the installation instructions, change the location of installation accordingly
  6. When asked: "Do you wish the installer to initialize Miniconda3?" type "yes"
  7. It will put miniconda in your .zshrc (to initialise do "source ~/.zshrc")

  9. Follow general conda installation instructions to get other packages
