EPEL is an extra software package repository for RedHat based distros, made by the Fedora team. They provide free and open source packages that are not available in the official package repository. EPEL packages are very high quality and very stable.

On CentOS 7

If the extra repository is already enabled:

$ sudo yum repolist | grep "extras/7/x86_64"

Then you can just run:

$ sudo yum install epel-release
