All you need to do is to install these packages via Homebrew. Homebrew is a package manager that helps install missing softwares on MacOs. The command line below installs Homebrek, zsh, wget, vim and git.

/usr/bin/ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/master/install)"
brew update
brew install wget zsh vim git

On Ubuntu, your installs can be made this way:

sudo apt update
sudo apt install -y make git zsh curl vim wget xclip

Anaconda is a Python distribution which allows you to install Python as well as 400 core packages for data manipulation, visualization and machine learning.
