Translating modules from Erlang to Elixir

Hi, is there any interest in porting erlang modules to elixir?

For example the :os module can easily be ported to Elixir, and even if it does nothing but forwarding calls to the :os module it shows up nicely in documentation in IEx. (I wonder if the compiler can inline those calls though)

Quite to the contrary. Porting erlang modules to elixir just for the sake of porting it is refrained from. For the documentation part look at EEP-48, which the recent elixir version uses and which is afaik supposed to be supported by erlang on the next mayor version.


Cool! Very nice! Thanks :slight_smile:
