Prying Open Your Phoenix App

I wanted to do some debugging in a Phoenix app, so I threw require IEx and IEx.pry() into my code, only to receive the following error:

Cannot pry
Is an IEx shell running?

In order to pry into your code, you'll have to start the server from within the Elixir shell.

iex -S mix phx.server
