Getting a current version of Elixir for CentOS 7?

I’m trying to install a current version of Elixir on a CentOS 7 VM. Problem is, I’m totally new to CentOS and Yum. Also, the VM is on a server that is halfway around the world.

Anyway, I seem to have been successful at installing Erlang 24, but the copy of Elixir I’m getting is: “Elixir 1.10.4 (compiled with Erlang/OTP 22)”.

This isn’t all THAT ancient, but I’m wondering if there’s an easy way to get a more recent version. Help?


Use asdf?

In case you want to build erlang and elixir from source I have this bash script:

Only thing it doesn’t set locale to en_US.UTF-8
