Setting up an Elixir/Erlang Development Environment on Ubuntu
Recently I have been curious about the Elixir language and its benefits..
As the title says, today I am going to show you how we can easily set up an Elixir/Erlang development environment on Ubuntu (precisely 14.04).
Elixir is built on top of Erlang virtual machine, this way, we need to install Erlang first.
Let's start by installing its dependencies:
Now, let's download Erlang's source code, compile and install it. You can check out the latest versions of Erlang in its own website.
After installation, type
erl to enter Erlang console.
Let's install the latest stable version of Elixir (check out on github).
Ok, now we have Elixir v0.15 installed, just type
iex to enter Interactive Elixir shell.
