New post on handling ENV variables in Phoenix

Just published a new series on Deploying Phoenix with Edeliver and Distillery to Ubuntu, designed for those getting started with Elixir and deployment.

Some highlights:

  • Build and Deploy on a Single Server
  • Local Postgres Database
  • Nginx as a reverse proxy
  • SSL Certificate with live domain
  • Systemd for auto-restarts
  • Managing production deployment:
  • Deploy / Rollback / Restart application releases
  • Run production database migrations
  • Check production application logs
