I wrote this blog post based on our experiences setting up continuous delivery for our first production umbrella Phoenix app. Coming from capistrano with Rails, I wanted to have something equally simple and flexible for our Phoenix app. Ansible with distillery was the answer.
We’ve used this set up in production for a while now and it has been working flawlessly. I hope it will help others save time going from development to production deployment.

Hi @danschultzer, thanks for writing this. I’m going to use your post to inform my own build/deployment. Has anything changed since you wrote this in Dec '17?
I’ve kept it up to date. The last update was in August, now using Distillery 2.0 and Elixir 1.7.1
Updated to Elixir 1.9.0 so
mix release is used instead of
Nice, thanks for updating it! It looks quite helpful. I have a quick suggestion. For anyone visiting that post via Google I’d recommend putting a “updated at” date or note in the blog post itself, otherwise I’d worry that people would land there and dismiss the blog post as “outdated” without actually reading it.
Yeah, you’re absolutely right. Thanks for pushing me to finally update the theme to show the updated date
