Can't find module in prod environment but test is working


I am a newbie in Phoenix so I hope I wont bother you with my question. I thank you in advance to show me the light :smiley:

I build an app on Phoenix, nothing special just a test to learn.

I added a library in my lib/

>ls lib/mylib/mymod.ex

Where I defined a MyLib.Mymod and a function foo that return bar

I wrote a test:

>ls test/mylib/mymod_test.exs

where I assert == "bar"

And the test run properly:

>mix test

Finished in 0.1 seconds
11 tests, 0 failures

Now I use the module MyLib.Mymod in config/prod.exs where I call foo/0

And the result is

>MIX_ENV=prod mix phx.server
** (UndefinedFunctionError) function Mylib.Mymod.get_env/0 is undefined (module Mylib.Mymod is not available)

Mix.exs paths seems ok:

  defp elixirc_paths(:test), do: ["lib", "test/support"]
  defp elixirc_paths(_), do: ["lib"]

From the test output, assuming it’s the actual output, the “l” in Mylib needs to be capitalized.

Excuse me, I did a mistake from a copy and past from my terminal:

> mix test

Finished in 0.2 seconds
11 tests, 0 failures

Randomized with seed 9483
> cat test/mylib/mymod_test.exs
defmodule Mylib.Mymodtest do
  use ExUnit.Case

  test "Existing env var SHELL" do
    assert == "bar"
> cat config/prod.exs
use Mix.Config
> MIX_ENV=prod mix compile
** (UndefinedFunctionError) function is undefined (module MyLib.Mymod is not available)
    (stdlib) erl_eval.erl:680: :erl_eval.do_apply/6

You can’t call modules in the various config exs files. Those config files are evaluated before any compilation happens.


Thanks :slight_smile:
