def project do
[app: :my_app,
version: "0.0.1",
build_path: "../../_build",
config_path: "../../config/config.exs",
deps_path: "../../deps",
lockfile: "../../mix.lock",
elixir: "~> 1.2",
elixirc_paths: elixirc_paths(Mix.env),
compilers: [:phoenix, :gettext] ++ Mix.compilers,
build_embedded: Mix.env == :prod,
start_permanent: Mix.env == :prod,
aliases: aliases,
deps: deps]
end
```
