Today I Learned

A Hashrocket project

Install the last Elixir version with asdf

If you are using asdf for managing Elixir version through asdf-elixir then you can install the master version. This way we can use new features yet to be release as 1.9. Let’s see how:

asdf install elixir master
asdf global elixir master

Then:

elixir --version
Erlang/OTP 21 [erts-10.3.2] [source] [64-bit] [smp:8:8] [ds:8:8:10] [async-threads:1] [hipe]

Elixir 1.9.0-dev (6ac1b99) (compiled with Erlang/OTP 20)
