Generating a Phoenix project from unreleased versions

You can create a new project using the latest Phoenix source installer (the phx.new Mix task) with the following steps:

  1. Remove any previously installed phx_new archives so that Mix will pick up the local source code. This can be done with mix archive.uninstall phx_new or by simply deleting the file, which is usually in ~/.mix/archives/.
  2. Copy this repo via git clone https://github.com/phoenixframework/phoenix or by downloading it
  3. Run the phx.new mix task from within the installer directory, for example:
$ cd installer
$ mix phx.new dev_app --dev

The --dev flag will configure your new project's :phoenix dep as a relative path dependency, pointing to your local Phoenix checkout:

defp deps do
  [{:phoenix, path: "../..", override: true},

To create projects outside of the installer/ directory, add the latest archive to your machine by following the instructions in installer/README.md

To build the documentation from source:

$ cd assets
$ npm install
$ cd ..
$ MIX_ENV=docs mix docs

To build Phoenix from source:
