In part 6 we experiment with OTP to see how we can make our inventory import more resilient. Then we’ll use the power of concurrency in Elixir to speed up our inventory import.
Now that our interface is working, we turn our attention to making sure our inventory it displays is current. We’ll create a custom Mix Task that we can run to import and update our inventory.
In part 4 we work on some improvements to our interface. We’ll add pagination, use Ecto to ensure we’re only displaying the cars we want to. Then we’ll see how helper functions can be used in our templated.
In part 3 we tackle URLs. We create a new URL structure to go along with our new app. Then we use Plug to create a custom redirect module to handle traffic to the old URL structure.
In part 2 of our series we take our existing data and determine how to structure it inside our Elixir application.
In the first episode of the Moving to Elixir course we create our application with a MySQL database. Then we import our existing database and make sure our application starts.
Pattern matching is one of the fundamental features of Elixir. In this episode we get a simple introduction to it and some of the ways it’s used in Elixir.
Using partial templates are a great way to break up larger, more complex templates. In this episode we see how easy it is to use them with Phoenix.
It’s easy to use Elixir to build static websites and in this episode we’ll do just that. We’ll learn how we can use Plug to build a website that serves up static content.
