First, open up your Environment configuration screen.

Second, install bzip2 via apt-get.

Third, switch to the Setup Script and paste the following to install Miniconda3:

#!/bin/bash
set -ex

# conda installer
export PATH=/opt/conda/bin:$PATH
install=Miniconda3-4.5.4-Linux-x86_64.sh
curl -O https://repo.continuum.io/miniconda/$install
bash $install -b -p /opt/conda
rm $install

You can then install packages via conda , e.g., conda install numpy .

To install Miniconda2, switch the install  line to be  install=Miniconda2-4.5.4-Linux-x86_64.sh .

Where will this be useful? 

 In multi-language environments, or environments where conda isn't pre-installed. Conda can reduce a lot of installation headaches.
