I created a script ex2erl (https://github.com/okeuday/reltool_util/blob/master/ex2erl) to convert a single Elixir module into multiple Erlang modules.  Then it is easy to include Elixir source code into an Erlang project without creating a dependency on Elixir for all use of the Erlang project.  The ex2erl script requires an Elixir installation alongside the Erlang installation and depends on the Elixir module having the debug_info in the beam output which is done by default.

Best Regards,
