You can get started in three easy steps:
# 1. Install a package with repository for your system: # On CentOS, install package centos-release-scl available in CentOS repository # and enable the testing repository: $ sudo yum install centos-release-scl $ sudo yum-config-manager --enable centos-sclo-rh-testing # On RHEL, enable RHSCL and RHSCL-beta repositories for you system: $ sudo yum-config-manager --enable rhel-server-rhscl-7-rpms $ sudo yum-config-manager --enable rhel-server-rhscl-beta-7-rpms # 2. Install the collection: $ sudo yum install rh-python36 # 3. Start using software collections: $ scl enable rh-python36 bash
At this point you should be able to use python just as a normal application. Some examples of new available commands follow:
$ python my-app.py $ pip install Flask $ pip install Django
In order to view the individual components included in this collection, including additional python modules, you can run:
$ sudo yum list rh-python36\*

On CentOS 7 and RHEL 7 you can pull the image with the following command:
