I’m adding an Ecto adapter to a library and I’m trying to find the best way to organize the local dev setup in the project.
When used in a host application, my library will require an Ecto repo to be passed as an argument (or configured via Mix). Working locally, however, and to run the tests, I need to start and work with a dev repo.
I already know that I can customize the
elixirc_paths project option, in the Mixfile. I understand it’s a common way to load some test files only in
I can see that it also works for the
dev environment, so that I can configure it to load all dev-only files from a special directory:
defp elixirc_paths(:test), do: ["lib", "test/support"] defp elixirc_paths(:dev), do: ["lib", "dev_support"] defp elixirc_paths(_), do: ["lib"]
My question is if there is a more idiomatic or correct way to accomplish this.
