[erlang-questions] embedding elixir in erlang code

Hello Benoit,

If you are using rebar, you should be able to use master as a dependency:


After using it as a dependency, since Elixir follows a similar structure to
OTP, you will need to choose which apps you want to load, there are some
instructions inside the rebar.config file:


Then you can install Elixir's rebar plugin:


And be able to compile and use Elixir files normally with your rebar

If you are not using rebar, I believe the easiest approach is to clone
elixir, run "make" and add the lib directory to ERL_LIBS.

I will work on documenting this process and also on adding a readme to
rebar_elixir_plugin with the available configuration options. Please let me
know if you have any questions or ask away on #elixir-lang.
