Elixir

A pure Elixir implementation of release packaging functionality for the Erlang VM

Distillery

Master Hex.pm Version Coverage Status

Every alchemist requires good tools, and one of the greatest tools in the alchemist's disposal is the distillery. The purpose of the distillery is to take something and break it down to its component parts, reassembling it into something better, more powerful. That is exactly what this project does - it takes your Mix project and produces an Erlang/OTP release, a distilled form of your raw application's components; a single package which can be deployed anywhere, independently of an Erlang/Elixir installation. No dependencies, no hassle.

This is a pure-Elixir, dependency-free implementation of release generation for Elixir projects. It is currently a standalone package, but may be integrated into Mix at some point in the future.

Installation

Distillery requires Elixir 1.3 or greater. It works with Erlang 18+.

defp deps do
  [{:distillery, "~> 1.4"}]
end

Just add as a mix dependency and use mix release. This is a replacement for exrm, but is in beta at this time.

If you are new to releases, please review the documentation.

Community/Questions/etc.

If you have questions or want to discuss Distillery, releases, or other deployment related topics, a good starting point is the Deployment section of ElixirForum, which can be found here.

I can often be found in IRC on freenode, in the #elixir-lang channel, and there is also an Elixir Slack channel as well, though I don't frequent that myself, there are many people who can answer questions there.

Failing that, feel free to open an issue on the tracker with questions, and I'll do my best to get to it in a timely fashion!
