    Trie implementation in Elixir (by Rob-bie)

    In order to efficiently check if a word is in the dictionary, or if any word starts by a given prefix, I used a trie. I found Retrieval, a tiny Elixir library that did just what I needed.

  • english-words

    :memo: A text file containing 479k English words for all your dictionary/word-based projects e.g: auto-completion / autosuggestion

    Some official list of words used for Scrabble can be found online, but it seems they cannot be used freely. Other lists can be found here and there on abandoned web pages and repos, but it's never clear how good they are, and they often come in weird or annoying formats (e.g. XLS). In the end I used one from this GitHub repository but I'm still not convinced of its quality.

  • Paraxial.io

    Bot detection and prevention for Elixir/Phoenix applications. Paraxial.io is bot detection and prevention for Elixir/Phoenix applications. Dealing with scrapers, card cracking, or credential stuffing? We take care of that.

  • surface

    A server-side rendering component library for Phoenix

    I also did not use "vanilla" LiveView, as I used the Surface library. This is a wrapper around LiveView that brings a whole new syntax to make the experience even more comfortable.

NOTE: The number of mentions on this list indicates mentions on common posts plus user suggested alternatives. Hence, a higher number means a more popular project.
