View Source mix local.hex (Mix v1.15.0-dev)
Installs Hex locally.
$ mix local.hex [VERSION]
By default the latest compatible version of Hex will be installed, unless
VERSION is specified.
If installing a precompiled Hex does not work, you can compile and install Hex directly with this command:
$ mix archive.install github hexpm/hex branch latest
Command line options
--force- forces installation without a shell prompt; primarily intended for automation in build systems like
--if-missing- performs installation only if Hex is not installed yet; intended to avoid repeatedly reinstalling Hex in automation when a script may be run multiple times
If both options are set, the shell prompt is skipped and Hex is not re-installed if it was already installed.
If you want to change the default mirror
used for fetching Hex, set the
HEX_MIRROR environment variable.
