Many times, when I'm setting up a cluster, I have to use an operating system (as RedHat or CentOS 6.5) which has an old version of Python (Python 2.6). For example, when using a Hadoop distribution that only supports those operating systems (as Hortonworks' HDP or Cloudera).

 And that also makes installing additional advanced Python packages difficult (such as Numpy, IPython, etc).

Then I tend to use Anaconda Python, an open source version of Python with many of those packages pre-built and pre-installed.

But installing Anaconda in each node of the cluster might be tedious.

So I made a simple script which helps installing Anaconda Python in the machines of a cluster more easily.

I wanted to share it here, in case it can help someone wanting using PySpark.
