    If you're not familiar with it, feel free to check the inner workings of Plug in their documentation. For now, the code above is fairly self-explanatory I hope. All we need to know is that we're using the Plug.Router capabilities and exposing an endpoint /bpi which we're going to use to retrieve our data and to show it.
