How Do I Configure an Erlang app in Elixir project?

So I am using an Erlang application in my Elixir app. The Erlang docs say to either “set it up in the environment” or “use a .config” file.

I have installed the app by putting it in my mix file as a dependency and then added it to my application function.

What is the proper way to do this? Can I somehow use my config.exs? Should I do something in my mix.exs or should I just execute the eralng commmand application:set_env somewhere before I use it?

This is what I’m trying to configure.

The contents of your config.exs is used to populate the application environment for any OTP applications mentioned in it. You can add the following code there

config :fuse, stats_plugin: :fuse_stats_folsom

perfect so its gonna basically call

application:set_env(x,y,z) for any config :x, y: :z it finds?

Pretty much, yes. You can also do

config :foo, [
  key1: value1,
  key2: value2,

which is equivalent to

Application.put_env(:foo, :key1, value1)
Application.put_env(:foo, :key2, value2)
