Stars - the number of stars that a project has on GitHub. Growth - month over month growth in stars.
Activity is a relative number indicating how actively a project is being developed. Recent commits have higher weight than older ones.
For example, an activity of 9.0 indicates that a project is amongst the top 10% of the most actively developed projects that we are tracking.
Pattern matching and guards as a form of natural type specification?
1 project | reddit.com/r/elixir | 24 Jan 2022
Forget the typespecs. Have a boundary layer where you check the shape of things and their types as they enter your system and possibly convert them to some type you need inside your system. Norm is great for this.

HexDocs for norm. — I am not a robot but maybe there should be a Hex package manager auto link bot. 🤖
Erlang/OTP 24 Highlights

I generally verify types only at the boundaries of my application (or very critical modules) using norm.
Either you have a strict type system that does not have an "any" type (yes, I'm looking at you Typescript), or you have a flexible type system like Python/Erlang/Elixir and you do runtime type checking whenever it's needed.

Check out Norm. Sounds like it's right up your alley
Erlang/OTP 25 has been released

1.13.4 is verified on OTP 25 RC2, so I'd assume it supports the release OTP 25.
C# Developers, what other programming language you would like to learn next?

Is OCaml the "Go" of Functional Programming Languages?
4 projects | reddit.com/r/ocaml | 29 Apr 2022
If you want a more quantified comparison, here is Elixir's parser, and here is OCaml's. Removing a lot of the function definitions that are left in ocaml's parse file, we can still see that Elixir's syntax is about a third of Ocaml's. For reference, Java would be about twice as much as OCaml's. Elixir does have some sugar on top of things that might not be necessary, e.g. sigils for strings and so on, but if you compare core elixir to core ocaml (or most other functional languages), or you compare full Elixir to full OCaml, you see that it's a smaller language. And to me, it provides overall a very Go-like experience.

In Elixir v1.14+ you will be able to import the module as you define it in .iex.exs files, as we now evaluate it line by line: https://github.com/elixir-lang/elixir/commit/395b0534f0e5312ab3ebbb9a9f9bc8da224ffdd8
What language do you think looks the most interesting?
1 project | reddit.com/r/askteenboys | 21 Apr 2022
Well, in terms of programming languages, I'm really interested in Elixir. Its approach to concurrency seems completely different to anything I've touched in C++, and its Ruby-like syntax is also quite appealing.
Task.start_link vs spawn_link
1 project | reddit.com/r/elixir | 26 Mar 2022
It is similar but better if you use Task.start_link cause you will get better introspection. It will also get supervised: https://github.com/elixir-lang/elixir/blob/v1.13.3/lib/elixir/lib/task.ex

There are more resources listed on the Elixir Homepage but these two in particular might be worth checking out. Being able to have an interactive discussion about some of your questions might be worthwhile.

Have you considered becoming an Elixir dev?
Modern Webapps with React, Phoenix, Elixir and TypeScript
8 projects | dev.to | 21 Jan 2022
I've started working on a side project this year and the tech stack I have chosen was the Elixir lang due to its functional design and fault tolerance (Thanks to the Erlang VM) so the Phoenix framework was a natural choice for me.
Phoenix LiveView, but event-sourced
6 projects | dev.to | 16 Jan 2022
The context: I'm building a cryptocurrency exchange application. I don't have the business chops to run an actual exchange, so this is just for fun. The application is built in Elixir, using the Commanded framework for CQRS/ES goodness, and Phoenix LiveView because it's the hot new thing that I wanted to learn.
