How to install RepoForge (formerly RPMForge) on CENTOS 7

As I get back into using CENTOS, I will be posting a few guides on various things I find. One of the first things is to install RepoForge (formerly RPMForge) to give a number of programs such as htop that I really missed.

So, to get started, download this rpm:

wget http://pkgs.repoforge.org/rpmforge-release/rpmforge-release-0.5.3-1.el7.rf.x86_64.rpm

The next step is to install it:

rpm -ivh rpmforge-release-0.5.3-1.el7.rf.x86_64.rpm

And finally, update yum

yum update

And the repo is now installed and updated, feel free to install any packages you need.
