What is EXRM exactly

Hi all
I tried to configure it out what EXRM is but could not find out. Could someone please explain it to me with an example EXRM is. I understand something with release.


It develops an Erlang ‘release’ from your elixir application. A release is basically a ‘minified’ version of your project. Unnecessary applications are stripped out, binary code only (no source), etc… It can usually run in highly constrained environments with ease as well.

What do you mena with minified version?

minified is a javascript term for taking the output, processing it to simplify it, shrink it, and make it distributable. :slight_smile:

Basically a release is just like distributing the ‘exe’ of a native compiled application. Not editable, no source, faster.
