Deploying Elixir and Phoenix applications using Docker and Exrm
By the end of this quick guide, you will know how to compile a Phoenix app release using Exrm and run it inside a Docker container. I've found only a couple of articles that discuss getting an Elixir app up and running inside a Docker container, and even those only touched on some parts of the process. The idea is that this guide will give you a full end-to-end example of how to get all the pieces and parts working together so that you are able to deploy your Phoenix application inside a Docker container.
- You already have a working Elixir environment with the Phoenix Framework installed
- You have at least basic working knowledge of Docker, and have installed the Docker tools onto your local environment
