Setting up Elixir with Atom on Linux
Sublime is a pretty nice editor for working with Elixir, but I just can’t get the autocomplete plugin to work. So, giving Atom a try.
Install the following packages:
atom-elixir – https://atom.io/packages/atom-elixir
language-elixir – https://atom.io/packages/language-elixir
linter (apm install linter) – https://atom.io/packages/linter
linter-elixirc – https://atom.io/packages/linter-elixirc
script – https://atom.io/packages/script
I use script to build within Atom (shift-ctrl-b). The only issue is that it seems to use the top-level folder of your project as a base path. So, if you try to do something like Code.load_file(“file.exs”) in one of your nested directories, it’ll try to load it from the top level directory.
Addendum for Mac
brew install elixir
brew install erlang
Set elixir path for autocomplete-elixir (if using Atom):
