Nerves Examples



Please see the main Nerves installation docs if you haven't used Nerves before.

Nerves can work with quite a few Elixir and Erlang versions, but we recommend using the following versions for the examples. These are used on our CI and should be easier for us to support.

  • Elixir 1.16.2 or later
  • Erlang OTP 26.2.5 or later

See the EmbeddedElixir post on using ASDF-VM

This repository contains several Nerves example projects as sub-directories. Most of these projects should work on all of the Nerves supported targets.

For detailed information on how to build an example, see the in each application's root directory.
