async(fun)

View Source (since 1.6.0)

Starts a task for parallel compilation.

If you have a file that needs to compile other modules in parallel, the spawned processes need to be aware of the compiler environment. This function allows a developer to create a task that is aware of those environments.

See Task.async/1 for more information. The task spawned must be always awaited on by calling Task.await/1

Link to this function

compile(files, options \\ [])

View Source (since 1.6.0)

Compiles the given files.

Those files are compiled in parallel and can automatically detect dependencies between them. Once a dependency is found, the current file stops being compiled until the dependency is resolved.

It returns {:ok, modules, warnings} or {:error, errors, warnings}.

Both errors and warnings are a list of three-element tuples containing the file, line and the formatted error/warning.

Options

  • :each_file - for each file compiled, invokes the callback passing the file

  • :each_long_compilation - for each file that takes more than a given timeout (see the :long_compilation_threshold option) to compile, invoke this callback passing the file as its argument

  • :each_module - for each module compiled, invokes the callback passing the file, module and the module bytecode

  • :each_cycle - after the given files are compiled, invokes this function that should return the following values:

    • {:compile, modules, warnings} - to continue compilation with a list of further modules to compile
    • {:runtime, modules, warnings} - to stop compilation and verify the list of modules because dependent modules have changed
  • :long_compilation_threshold - the timeout (in seconds) to check for modules taking too long to compile. For each file that exceeds the threshold, the :each_long_compilation callback is invoked. From Elixir v1.11, only the time spent compiling the actual module is taken into account by the threshold, the time spent waiting is not considered. Defaults to 10 seconds.

  • :profile - if set to :time measure the compilation time of each compilation cycle and group pass checker

  • :dest - the destination directory for the BEAM files. When using compile/2, this information is only used to properly annotate the BEAM files before they are loaded into memory. If you want a file to actually be written to dest, use compile_to_path/3 instead.

  • :beam_timestamp - the modification timestamp to give all BEAM files

Link to this function

require(files, options \\ [])

View Source (since 1.6.0)

Requires the given files in parallel.

Opposite to compile, dependencies are not attempted to be automatically solved between files.

It returns {:ok, modules, warnings} or {:error, errors, warnings}.

Both errors and warnings are a list of three-element tuples containing the file, line and the formatted error/warning.

Options

  • :each_file - for each file compiled, invokes the callback passing the file

  • :each_module - for each module compiled, invokes the callback passing the file, module and the module bytecode
