Every alchemist requires good tools, and one of the greatest tools in the alchemist's disposal is the distillery. The purpose of the distillery is to take something and break it down to its component parts, reassembling it into something better, more powerful. That is exactly what this project does - it takes your Mix project and produces an Erlang/OTP release, a distilled form of your raw application's components; a single package which can be deployed anywhere, independently of an Erlang/Elixir installation. No dependencies, no hassle. This is a pure-Elixir, dependency-free implementation of release generation for Elixir projects. It is currently a standalone package, but may be integrated into Mix at some point in the future.
