Thanks to modern web development frameworks, creating new applications has become an easy and straightforward process.
Developers run a couple of commands to generate the new project, finetune the necessary configurations, start the server, and that’s it. They have a barebone skeleton application that is up and running on the local server.
The Phoenix framework is no exception to that rule. The task —
mix phx.new is responsible for creating a new Phoenix project.
If you check out the official docs, you will notice that the task supports many optional parameters. …
These days, the most commonly spoken “buzzwords” in the Elixir community are — Phoenix LiveView, TailwindCSS, and AlpineJS.
And true enough, if you do a little bit of google searching, you will find plenty of blog posts, podcasts, and video tutorials that do a comprehensive overview of those technologies.
I have been working with Phoenix LiveView and TailwindCSS for about a year now. Both technologies have drastically improved my productivity as a web developer, allowing me to focus on coding the business logic rather than figuring out the overly technical nitty-gritty implementation details.
Last week, I finally got the chance…
Introducing Phx.Gen.Auth — your new favorite phoenix generator
Recently, I picked up a side assignment that required me to develop a Phoenix application from scratch. Phase one of the project was about building a simple proof of concept application that included user authentication.
When it comes to working with Elixir and Phoenix, my default choice of authentication framework is Ueberauth. I usually prefer to work with it as it is easy to integrate and includes a wide range of strategies covering most authentication use cases.
This time, I chose to switch things up. Instead of relying on my good pal…
6 simple steps to help kickstart your glorious journey with Phoenix and TailwindCSS
I have to start this blog post with a confession — I am deeply and utterly in love with TailwindCSS.
The two of us met for the first time a couple of months back. One of my colleagues thought we would be a good match for each other, so he made the introduction.
At first, I was a bit skeptical. I mean, I have been on dates with similar frameworks before — Bootstrap, Bulma, Foundation, etc. …
I want to start this blog post by getting something off my chest — I am not a morning person. I like to sleep in on the weekends. And the only reason I will ever get out of bed before 10 am is to attend a work-related meeting.
I guess you are already wondering — what qualifies me to advise you about crafting the best suitable morning routine for you.
It’s pretty simple. I am a full-time night owl that has a day job. …
And the story of how they made me a better engineer
Today I want to take the time to share with you one of my all-time favorite Github features — Draft Pull Requests. I have been actively using them in my development flow for about 12 months now.
Lately, I realized that working with draft pull requests has dramatically improved the way I structure and organize my daily engineering work as well as the efficiency with which I solve problems and deliver value for my stakeholders.
Okay, let’s get real for a second. No-one can actually build a production-ready blog application from scratch in less than 15 minutes. That’s not how the world works. However, creating a working prototype — that’s totally possible.
So here is the plan — we are gonna spend the next 15min or so building a prototype of a blog application that meets the following criteria:
