Type: Discussion

The author, el_toro_2022, is developing a command-line tool in Elixir on an Arch Linux system and faces compatibility issues when running it on Ubuntu due to different Beam versions. They are considering various packaging options such as Nix, but are hesitant as Nix might not be installed on all target systems. They find AppImage to be potentially excessive for their needs and believe that Flatpak might be a viable solution. They seek recommendations on what is typically done to package Elixir command-line applications to ensure broad compatibility across different Linux distributions.
