# Exreleasy

A very simple tool for releasing elixir applications.

Many people use erlang releases only for one reason: to bundle local erlang runtime inside the project. But unfortunatelly you loose the ability to run mix.

This tool bundles erlang/elixir locally and creates wrapper scripts for running mix/iex.

Credit for the idea goes to @savonarola

## Installation

  1. Add `exreleasy` to your list of dependencies in `mix.exs`:

    def deps do
      [{:exreleasy, "~> 0.1.0"}]

## Usage

To bundle erlang/elixir inside your project:

    mix exreleasy.localize

This will create `./release` directory with erlang/elixir and wrapper scripts:


To make a release:

    mix exreleasy.release v0.0.1

This will create `./release/archive/v0.0.1.tar.gz` archive with your project (including ./release directory)
