I am overriding the default Mix.Tasks.Phx.Gen.Html to generate my custom html code. It was working all well till I upgraded phoenix the last time. When I run
mix release now, I get the following error:
‘Elixir.Mix.Tasks.Phx.Gen.Html’ specified in my_app and phoenix
I tried to google the problem but I couldn’t find a solution. Maybe someone of you got an idea?
Would creating your own mix task solve the issue? You should be able to create an alias in
mix.exs and hide the original one.
no, because when I google for the task, I will always forget about my custom one. I only want to override the original templates so I don’t need to manually change all of my templates again and can save some of that repetitive work
Define your template using a different module name and then add an alias to your mix.exs that replaces phx.gen.html by your task
