LcovEx: lcov file generator for elixir projects

After a while I found kinda inconvenient to open and check the coverage default reports every time I change a test, so I looked for some inline alternatives for vscode, and I found the Coverage Gutters extension. To work it needs a lcov file, so that’s why I made LcovEx:

For now you need to config it as the coverage module tool, but I plan to make it work as an independent task later on.

If it’s useful to you give it a go and let me know what you think! And please let me know if you used it with other editors/extensions/tools.

I confirmed that it also works with Atom’s lcov-info extension, but it requires you to change the output folder to "coverage", so then your file is generated at coverage/lcov.info.
