Installing Elixir

How to install Elixir

Up to date solution for installing Elixir on your machine can be found on the official language website. You can also take a look at one of the extendable version managers, for example asdf. Remember that Elixir is built on top of Erlang, so you will have to install it in the first place if it's not yet on your machine (reference). The only prerequisite for Elixir is Erlang, version 19.0 or later.

Checking Elixir version on your machine

Once installation process is finished we can check if everything went according to plan. Let's check which version of Elixir is installed on machine:

➜ elixir -v
Erlang/OTP 22 [DEVELOPMENT] [erts-10.0.3] [source-0e9c319480] [64-bit] [smp:4:4] [ds:4:4:10] [async-threads:1] [hipe]

Elixir 1.6.6 (compiled with OTP 19)

If your output is similar, you can be sure that Elixir is installed correctly.
