elixir_script v0.32.0 Release Notes

Release Date: 2018-02-10 // almost 5 years ago
  • ➕ Added

    • ElixirScript.Test for testing ElixirScript modules in JavaScript. ElixirScript.Test is for unit testing modules that interact with JavaScript in some way. For modules that are can be used in both Elixir and ElixirScript, ExUnit is still preferred. Tests that use ElixirScript.Test must be placed in a test_elixir_script folder in the root of your project. These tests are run using node.js. The API for ElixirScript.Test is meant to be as close to ExUnit as possible.

    🔄 Changed

    • ElixirScript now requires Elixir 1.6. This is so that ElixirScript can use the new Mix.Task.Compiler behaviour.
    • mix clean will now correctly clean up ElixirScript output.
    • Compiler will now output a JavaScript file per Elixir module.
    • Modules with a start function must be started directly.
      # Before ElixirScript 0.32.0:
      import Elixir from './elixirscript.build.js'
      Elixir.start(Elixir.Main, [1, 2, 3])
      # ElixirScript 0.32.0 and later:
      import Main from './Elixir.Main.js'
      Main.start(Symbol.for('normal'), [1, 2, 3])
