Ignore subapp in umbrella


I am in the process of refactoring and system gradually to an umbrella app.

I placed the old non-umbrella app into the /apps directory while I’m extracting parts out into other apps/

I’d like to ignore the legacy app for startup and ex_doc when starting/generating docs for the project. Is this possible?

You have to move to another directory or set apps: [:foo, :bar, :baz] in the umbrella configuration explicitly listing which apps you want to consider part of the umbrella.


Cool, that worked. Although it still pulls in the config file from the ignored app

You should change your config in config/config.exs in the umbrella then. You probably have a wildcard pattern in there.
