I was looking for ways to make my elixir installations more flawless across my environments, I wrote How to install the Phoenix Framework on Cloud9 but I feel like it was way too long, that’s why I decided to create a shell script to install just Elixir.
The source code can be found at the GitHub repository and of course, any suggestions and PR’s are welcome!
Yeah, really, it’s to long. For erlang and elixir base, it shouldn’t be more than adding esl-repository to apt and then installing.
What I really have problems with every time I do encounter an apt machine is the very outdated node version in the official Repo. This would really need some attention!
Installing on Ubuntu is fine for me but I always find problems when trying to install on Kubuntu. Also I don’t think Elixir 1.2 is available in the Kubuntu repos. I believe.
