  • The Best Go framework: no framework?
    2 projects | | 29 Nov 2022
    I code in Elixir on a large-scale Web App for my day job. We use Phoenix as our backend framework. Elixir is a pure functional language, and yet Phoenix is basically the way to write a Web App in Elixir to the point that many companies choose Elixir because it gives them access to Phoenix and Live View rather than picking Elixir for its own merits as a language, then deciding architecture.
  • Act: Run your GitHub Actions locally

    Yeah, I got so frustrated with the odd workflow (having no sane way to locally test new/more advanced pipelines and having to do lot's of "change .gitlab-ci commits") at work that I started investigating alternatives.

    At home, for some hobby projects, I've been using earthly. It's just amazing. I can fully run the jobs locally and they are _blazing_ fast due to the buildkit caching. The CI now only just executes the earthly stuff and is super trivial (very little vendor lock in, I personally use woodpecker-ci, but it would only take 5 minutes to convert to use GH actions).

    I am not a fan of the syntax. But it's so familiar from Dockerfiles and so easy to get started I can't really complain about it. Easy to make changes, even after months not touching it. Unless I update dependencies or somehow invalidate most of the cache a normal pipeline takes <10s to run (compile, test, create and push image to a registry).

    This workflow is such a game-changer. It also allows, fairly easy, to do very complicated flows [1].

    I've tried to get started with dagger but I don't use the currently supported SDK's and the cue-lang setup was overwhelming. I think I like the idea of a more sane syntax from dagger, but Earthly's approachability just rings true.


  • Is rails the right choice for a junior dev?
    3 projects | | 13 Oct 2022
    You could pick up a framework like Phoenix, or Remix (the newest kid on the block) and I'm sure you'd get plenty far with either - and if you want ruby, try Roda. You might not have ready made tools with the newer frameworks, so watch out for that. But they have the advantage of doing thing slightly differently.

  • Ask HN: So, what's up with Phoenix (web framework)?
    14 projects | | 20 Aug 2022
    In your generated `my_app_web/endpoint.ex` there is a plug that will serve static contents from your `priv/static` directory:

    This points to a function in `my_app_web.ex` which specifies which paths it will serve:

    So you can either copy your js and image folders to `priv/static/assets` and they will be available as `localhost:port/assets/js/somefile.js` etc. OR you can add `js` to the list of paths to serve in app_name_web.ex and copy your js files to `priv/static/js` and access them at `localhost:port/js/somefile.js`.

  • Phoenix: Render 404 Page From a Page Controller
    2 projects | | 19 Aug 2022
    Lately I’ve started working on a project based on Elixir and Phoenix. I picked a task to add a custom 404 error page and render it from the PageController. The problem seemed trivial, but getting it to work required a bit of research.
