Top 23 Elixir Elixir Projects

  • GitHub repo Phoenix

    Peace of mind from prototype to production

    Project mention: Modern Webapps with React, Phoenix, Elixir and TypeScript | dev.to | 2022-01-21

    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.

  • GitHub repo Plausible Analytics

    Simple, open-source, lightweight (< 1 KB) and privacy-friendly web analytics alternative to Google Analytics.

    Project mention: Google Analytics declared illegal in the EU. | reddit.com/r/programming | 2022-01-19

  • GitHub repo Papercups

    Project mention: Complete, Production-Ready Phoenix Reference Applications | reddit.com/r/elixir | 2021-11-15


  • GitHub repo realtime

    Listen to your to PostgreSQL database in realtime via websockets. Built with Elixir.

    Project mention: Postgres is a great pub/sub and job server | news.ycombinator.com | 2021-12-17

    I like Supabase's approach over pub/sub. One of the big advantages is they listen to the Postgres WAL which overcomes the 8000 bytes limitation[1] of the notify approach.

    And Elixir is especially well suited for this type of workload. I actually extracted out much of the Supabase Realtime library so that I could work with the data directly in Elixir[2]

  • GitHub repo Absinthe Graphql

    The GraphQL toolkit for Elixir

    Project mention: Building JSON API w/ Authentication as a backend for a mobile app? | reddit.com/r/elixir | 2022-01-17

    The Elixir ecosystem loves GraphQL so, if you're interested in going that direction, there's good tooling and plenty of support with absinthe.

  • OPS

  • GitHub repo guardian

    Elixir Authentication

    Project mention: Building JSON API w/ Authentication as a backend for a mobile app? | reddit.com/r/elixir | 2022-01-17

    As for the original question, OP you should check out https://github.com/ueberauth/guardian if you want to roll your own auth. If not rolling you own you can just use a standard Oauth provider and validate their tokens (surprise they are JWTs) in you backend using their public keys.

  • GitHub repo distillery

    Simplify deployments in Elixir with OTP releases!

    Project mention: There are a *lot* of actor framework projects on Cargo. | reddit.com/r/rust | 2021-05-01

    I've saved a link to distillery just in case, cheers.

  • GitHub repo httpoison

    Yet Another HTTP client for Elixir powered by hackney

    Project mention: how to make HTTPOISON POST request with form-data ? | reddit.com/r/elixir | 2021-08-23

    Perhaps this thread has what you're looking for https://elixirforum.com/t/httpoison-post-multipart-with-more-form-than-the-file/4222/5 or try this GitHub issue https://github.com/edgurgel/httpoison/issues/237

  • GitHub repo quantum

    :watch: Cron-like job scheduler for Elixir

    Project mention: Elixir: Practical Concurrency Cookbook | dev.to | 2021-04-01

    In some cases, we might want to run our code at specific times. Not necessarily every 3 minutes, but every day at 08.00AM. While this is perfectly achievable leveraging the same tools, I'll be pragmatic and recommend Quantum. It allows you to schedule the execution of functions with a cron syntax and takes away all the complexity of managing processes. It's a seasoned library, widely-adopted within the community, very lightweight... And extremely simple.

  • GitHub repo poison

    An incredibly fast, pure Elixir JSON library

    Project mention: Connecting Ember.js with Phoenix | dev.to | 2021-06-02

    bamboo: Envio de e-mail com Elixir.

  • GitHub repo broadway

    Concurrent and multi-stage data ingestion and data processing with Elixir

    Project mention: How we sync Stripe to Postgres | dev.to | 2021-07-08

    This was a great excuse to use Elixir's Broadway. A Broadway pipeline consists of one producer and one or more workers. The producer is in charge of producing jobs. The workers consume and work those jobs, each working in parallel. Broadway gives us a few things out of the box:

  • GitHub repo ex_machina

    Create test data for Elixir applications

    Project mention: How to write test cases for databse related functions | reddit.com/r/elixir | 2021-11-05

    The well known FactoryBot (FactoryGirl) from rails has a pretty good equivalent in Phoenix as ExMachina (https://github.com/thoughtbot/ex_machina) and does the job really well (thoughtbot is a pretty good and stable contributor too, so a nice Omakase plug-in!)

  • GitHub repo nx

    Multi-dimensional arrays (tensors) and numerical definitions for Elixir (by elixir-nx)

    Project mention: Who Watches Watchmen? – Integrating Elixir Applications with Systemd | news.ycombinator.com | 2022-01-17

  • GitHub repo tesla

    The flexible HTTP client library for Elixir, with support for middleware and multiple adapters.

    Project mention: Learn how to deploy Elixir apps on Heroku | dev.to | 2021-02-12

    To integrate the API via Elixir let's use the HTTP wrapper Tesla. There are many good options out there, such as the good old Httpoison. However, Tesla has some added benefits. I won't go into details as it's not the purpose of this article, but it's worth checking out.

  • GitHub repo timex

    A complete date/time library for Elixir projects.

    Project mention: [Phoenix LiveView] formatting date/time with local time zone | dev.to | 2021-03-06
