This plugin originally started life as a shell script (
lfetool -- there's
even a T-shirt for it!), then it toyed with integrating with
original). Around that time, though,
rebar3 was under initial development,
and LFE took a chance on it as an early adopter. This lead to a whole series of
LFE plugins, but after a few years momentum was lost.
rebar3 efforts have been combined into a single plugin in this
project, with many updates and using all the latest approaches developed in
rebar3's now mature ecosystem.
