Erlang tasks for Mix

This project provides a few Mix tasks that make it more convenient to use Mix as a build tool and package manager when developing applications in Erlang.

Mix automates and simplifies a lot of development tasks: adding and fetching dependencies, compilation, running test suites, generating documentation from source code, etc. It integrates with Hex to be able to push and fetch packages from https://hex.pm and it also supports custom tasks. A few good examples of the latter would be dialyze and release.

You can get Mix by installing Elixir or by downloading a standalone mix escript from https://hex.pm (see section Using with Erlang) and putting it in your PATH.

Once installed, create a new project for your Erlang application.

Choose how you'd like to install the custom tasks:

  1. As an archive:

     mix archive.install https://github.com/alco/mix-erlang-tasks/releases/download/v0.1.0/mix_erlang_tasks-0.1.0.ez

    This will make the custom tasks available to mix regardless of where it is invoked, just like the builtin tasks are.

  2. Add mix_erlang_tasks as a dependency to your project:

     # in your mix.exs
     defp deps do
       [{:mix_erlang_tasks, "0.1.0"}]

    This will make the new tasks available only in the root directory of your Mix project.

Once installed, you'll have the following tasks available:

$ mix eunit          # run EUnit tests
$ mix ct             # run Common Test suites
$ mix edoc           # generate HTML documentation from the source

See example project at https://github.com/alco/erlang-mix-project.
