FacadesΒΆ

Facades are Erlang modules that define a simplified interface to the functionality provided by an application.

Facades should always the same name as the Erlang application.

Facades often provide a convenience function start/0 that can be used to start the application along with its dependencies. You can use e2_application:start_with_dependencies/1 to do this.

Here’s a minimal facade example:

-module(myapp).

-export([start/0, stop/0])

start() ->
    e2_application:start_with_dependencies(myapp).

stop() ->
    application:stop(myapp).
