Elixir compiled source code not available in release

Hello Elixir Community.

Some Elixir Module is not available in release like Mix.Generator, but in dev environment works fine.
How can I make it available in my mix release for deployment?

mix, being a build tool, is generally not available in releases. May I ask what are you trying to do with it?

I use to generate .odt report files based on .eex template.

I ended up by doing this {:mix, git: "https://github.com/elixir-lang/elixir.git", tag: "v1.14.3", sparse: "lib/mix", only: :prod}

EEx is part of elixir core. You shouldn’t need mix for that.

You don’t need to do that. You can use the following to include extra applications of erlang/otp or elixir as dependencies to your propect.

  def application do
    […, extra_applications: [:mix]]
