I am creating the release of an umbrella app via
mix release. However, even though I can manually run the app, I get some errors when launching it.
I am trying to run an app with
mix release. This command works fine and it creates the executable in
_build/prod/rel/my_app/bin/my_app. I can run this executable with the command
start and everything runs nicely.
However, if instead of
start I use
start_iex I first get an error, and then the app runs normally:
$ _build/prod/rel/my_app/bin/my_app start_iex Erlang/OTP 22 [erts-10.5] [source] [64-bit] [smp:12:12] [ds:12:12:10] [async-threads:1] [hipe] *** ERROR: Shell process terminated! (^G to start new job) *** Erlang/OTP 22 [erts-10.5] [source] [64-bit] [smp:12:12] [ds:12:12:10] [async-threads:1] [hipe]
my_app is an umbrella app. Here is the
mix.exs contents of the umbrella app:
defmodule MyApp.MixProject do use Mix.Project def project do [ apps_path: "apps", version: "0.1.0", start_permanent: Mix.env() == :prod, deps: deps(), elixir: "~> 1.10", releases: releases() ] end defp deps, do:  defp releases, do: [ my_app: [ applications: [ api: :permanent, core: :permanent, storage: :permanent ] ] ] end
- Why do I get an error when using
start_iexand not when using
- Why does
start_iexwork after the error?
