I think one of the reasons why Elixir is not more popular is its lack of support by popular Paas offers on cloud services. Lobby to fix that and you have a bigger community instantly :D

For example Elixir is not present in the list of default languages for Heroku - heroku.com/languages - (yes, you can use custom buildpacks but you don't have the company support) nor in Elastic Beanstalk's - aws.amazon.com/elasticbeanstalk/faqs/ - nor in Google App Engine's - cloud.google.com/appengine/kb/ - nor in Azure App Service - docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/app...

None of this has anything to do with the language, just needs a little support by the major vendors...
