npm, I can do
npm install --save superagent, and it’ll do the equivalent of adding that package with a version number to my package.json and fetching and installing it.
WIth hex, I have to go on Github / Hexdocs, find the latest version (which sometimes package authors forget to update in the readme, but remember to update the rest of the docs), add it to my
mix.exs, and run
Why isn’t there / couldn’t there be a
hex install or a
mix install that did all of that for me?
