We’ve been testing out the forthcoming Elixir 1.6 formatter on Tilex’s codebase, which requires a version of the langage that has not yet been officially released.
There’s a few ways to do this. Since Elixir is installed with Homebrew on my machine, here’s how to do it with Homebrew:
$ brew install elixir --HEAD
From the Homebrew man page:
If --HEAD is passed, and formula defines it, install the HEAD version, aka master, trunk, unstable.
Welcome to the bleeding edge!
