Package Setup

To use UAInspector with your projects, edit your mix.exs file and add the required dependencies:

defp deps do
    # ...
    {:ua_inspector, "~> 2.0"},
    # ...

If you want to use a manual supervision approach (without starting the application) please look at the inline documentation of UAInspector.Supervisor.

Application Configuration

Out of the box the default database files will be stored in the :priv_dir of :ua_inspector. Both the database sources and path used can be changed.

For a detailed list of available configuration options please consult UAInspector.Config.

Basic Usage

Database Download

You need to obtain a copy of the configured databases by calling either mix ua_inspector.download from the command line or UAInspector.Downloader.download/0 from within your application.

Refer to UAInspector.Downloader for more details.
