The Erlang stack

01 Oct 2012

I am learning Erlang for a little to a year now, not constantly but every now and then and a little more in the last 2-3 months. As I dug deeper and deeper in the language I started looking for the typical stack for Erlang programs. That means tools to develop and run a Erlang/OTP application and here is a (not yet complete) list of what I have found.

Erlang is a language that has been and is used for various types of applications. Unfortunately many developers don't feel comfortable with the functional programming paradigm that Erlang is built upon. To help you get started on your way as a to-be Erlang developer here are some tools that may help you:

I'll write separate articles for each of the tools in the future, this post will just be a pointing in the right direction for lost Erlang developers ;-) Please, if you know any other helpful tools, don't hesitate to post it in the comments and I will add them to the list. I know that this is just a very small overview, but these are all tools that helped me get a better Erlang developer, either by using them and/or by reading their code.

Happy Erlang'ing ;-)
