  • Phoenix 1.7 is View-less
    10 projects | | 30 Dec 2022
    Some of the 1.7 stuff has an alert banner that pops up when the connection is broken. I think that could really help.

    However I haven't put that in our app as I have seen other issues of flakey connection reconnect issues, and I would hate to make any of those more visible with a flashing notice.

    Also to your point, the latest LiveView release moved some helper utilities around and you need to add "import Phoenix.Component" in places. I could be wrong but I think the latest live code gen still isn't setting up correct imports. More info here:

    If you need any kind of interactivity on the frontend, but are more comfortable with the backend, I would suggest looking at Phoenix LiveView [0] or a similar server-rendered HTML technology for your language of your choice [1].

    In short, these solutions take JavaScript out of the mix entirely and basically let you deal with a single logical "app", rather than a separate frontend & backend.

    It uses JS though, as it is required to open a WS connection and change content without refreshing the page, but that looks like it is abstracted from the user.
  • Mark Nottingham: Server-Sent Events, WebSockets, and HTTP

    > I'm not up to date with the less popular web frameworks. Which frameworks do that?

    One of them is which is a component of Phoenix / Elixir.

    It will render your initial page over HTTP but then when you transition pages or perform actions using various functions it provides you it will send a diff of what's changed over WebSockets. These actions could be limited to only the 1 user using the site, such as clicking different links in a nav bar to transition between page A and B.

    The alternative to this is doing what other frameworks like Rails has done with Hotwire Turbo where they make these types of transitions of actions over HTTP. Turbolinks started to do this back in 2015 or whenever it came out and now more recently with Hotwire Turbo there's ways to only update a tiny area of the page (again over HTTP) but it also optionally supports using WebSockets for when you want to broadcast things to all connected clients, such as updating a counter somewhere or maybe showing a new reply on a blog post, etc..

    Laravel has Live Wire and there's also HTMX which is back-end agnostic which all use HTTP for a bulk of their behaviors to send server rendered HTML over the wire.

    I think Phoenix even has a templating framework for the front-end, called LiveViewer ( And i believe it uses the built-in websockets to communicate changes on front-end to the server.
  • Phoenix LiveView, but event-sourced
    6 projects | | 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.
  • How Laravel Livewire works (a deep dive)
    9 projects | | 12 Oct 2021
    I feel that the simplicity of just building on the server and pushing the updates across the wire is where we are heading. So a lot less double up, with regards needing to write both for the server and client. Validation especially will just need to be written once.

    Although I do feel Phoenix Liveview is a better option because they implement sockets.

    Also saw this update today they will allow you to trigger javascript on the client without the sever round trip, it's one of the things people get a bit stuck understanding. Generally they think to pop open a modal or menu requires a round trip to the server but really you should be using Alpine.js or similar for such things. This new pending update remove the requirement of needing a framework like Alpine.
