davisp commented on issue #1428: Migrate to rebar3 or mix
URL: https://github.com/apache/couchdb/issues/1428#issuecomment-521702520
   Looks like I never actually described my original issues with the port 
compiler very well. But the gist of it was that projects that had a dependency 
that depended on Jiffy would fail to get that NIF built correctly. There is/was 
also a confounding issue of making it work with rebar2 since CouchDB hadn't 
moved off it. Creating the standalone enc script ended up being the easiest 
solution at the time. Its been years so its quite possible that's all fixed now.
   As to mix vs rebar3 in particular, the only worry I'd have is that Elixir is 
going to tighten our acceptable versions of Erlang. And in my completely 
limited experience it seems as though they tend to follow the newest releases 
quite closely. But that's super anecdata so I could be way off there.
