Mix v1.9.1 mix archive.install View Source

Installs an archive locally.

If no argument is supplied but there is an archive in the project's root directory (created with mix archive.build), then the archive will be installed locally. For example:

mix do archive.build, archive.install

If an argument is provided, it should be a local path or a URL to a prebuilt archive, a Git repository, a GitHub repository, or a Hex package.

mix archive.install archive.ez
mix archive.install path/to/archive.ez
mix archive.install https://example.com/my_archive.ez
mix archive.install git https://path/to/git/repo
mix archive.install git https://path/to/git/repo branch git_branch
mix archive.install git https://path/to/git/repo tag git_tag
mix archive.install git https://path/to/git/repo ref git_ref
mix archive.install github user/project
mix archive.install github user/project branch git_branch
mix archive.install github user/project tag git_tag
mix archive.install github user/project ref git_ref
mix archive.install hex hex_package
mix archive.install hex hex_package 1.2.3

After installation, the tasks in the archive are available locally:

mix some_task

Note that installing via Git, GitHub, or Hex fetches the source of the archive and builds it, while using a URL or a local path fetches a pre-built archive.

Command line options

  • --sha512 - checks the archive matches the given SHA-512 checksum. Only applies to installations via URL or local path

  • --force - forces installation without a shell prompt; primarily intended for automation in build systems like Make

  • --submodules - fetches repository submodules before building archive from Git or GitHub

  • --app - specifies a custom app name to be used for building the archive from Git, GitHub, or Hex

  • --organization - specifies an organization to use if fetching the package from a private Hex repository

  • --timeout - sets a request timeout in milliseconds for fetching archives from URLs. Default is 60 seconds
