In order to write LFE scripts, libraries, and applications, you will need to install the following:
makeand related developer tools
First and foremost, you will need Erlang installed.
- On Mac OS X, this is as easy as executing
brew install erlang
- On Ubuntu
apt-get install erlang.
For those who have the need of installing multiple versions of Erlang, there is also the kerl project.
In order to use LFE, you will be calling
make to compile it. To cover your bases, you'll want to make sure you have the basic development tools installed for your platform.
sudo apt-get install build-essential
sudo yum groupinstall "Development Tools"
For Mac OS X, you will need to install the "Developer Tools" from the AppStore.
You will also need
git to continue with this quick-start. If
git doesn't come installed on your system and it wasn't installed as part of your systems basic development tools package, you can download it here
or install it using your favourite OS package manager.
