162: Elixir to WebAssembly with Orb

WebAssembly is an interesting technology that feels completely separate from Elixir. Patrick Smith created an Elixir project called Orb, an Elixir DSL for WebAssembly. He also shows how a WebAssembly component can play a meaningful role in a LiveView page! We talk more about what WebAssembly is, the promise for the technology, how it can improve UX, and where Patrick sees real practical applications for Elixir developers.

158: From Ruby to Elixir with Steve Bussey

A challenge for many people learning Elixir is the change in the mental model. Coming from OOP to Functional changes how we reason about our applications and the old way doesn't always map over cleanly. Also, Elixir is capable of doing a lot more than other languages and frameworks can and this means learning how to build a “normal” application may change. We talk with Steve Bussey about his new book “From Ruby to Elixir” that aims to help people bridge that gap. While the title says “Ruby”, we discuss how many of the concepts apply to people coming from most OOP languages. We talk about different libraries to recommend to people coming from a traditional Rails stack and more!

157: Adding Dialyzer Late in the Game

Dialyzer is something that eventually everyone hears about in the Elixir community. It's a static code analysis tool that has both fans and detractors, and with good reasons on both sides! We talk with Noah Betzen about how he brought Dialyzer to several mature Elixir projects. He wanted the benefits of finding and fixing bugs and to prevent new problems from being added. He shared tools, strategies and other resources for how to get started without stopping everything to fix all the existing problems. If you've ever tried to add Dialyzer to a project and aborted, then this discussion may give you the courage and the tools to try again!

124: Caching Things Anywhere with Nebulex

We wanted to go deeper on the caching library Nebulex, so we visited with the creator, Carlos Bolaños, to learn what prompted its creation. Nebulex takes a couple unique approaches to things. It supports a decorator pattern to indicate that a function should be cached without having to write the boilerplate code for reading and writing to the cache. Nebulex was inspired by Ecto, in that it supports multiple adapters to different backends like Redis, Cachex and even Horde! It also supports multiple caching strategies. It's an interesting project that aims to solve common caching challenges in new ways and we enjoyed learning more about it.

Creator of the Ash Framework, Zach Daniel, shares how he feels Ecto is such a good tool, that people haven't built a modeling layer above it and end up using Ecto directly. Ash models a resource above Ecto, making it more expressive while supporting LiveView, REST, and GraphQL interfaces on top. While cutting boilerplate, a major goal builds in escape hatches to keep from being boxed in. Ash Framework recently celebrated a 2.0 release, accompanied by the release of the Ash HQ website.

122: Securing Elixir and Teaching the Team

It’s important to learn safe coding practices. As developers, we want people to love our products and happily pay to use them. We also want to protect our services and users from hackers and information leaks. However, sometimes we unknowingly create vulnerabilities in our systems. One of the best ways to prevent problems is to train the team working on the project. To help do this, Holden Oullette started an OpenSource project called Elixir Secure Coding Training for teams. Livebook based, the lessons can be forked and customized for what’s relevant to our projects. Check out what's already available! There’s more work and lessons to create. People are invited to jump in and help out. The goal is to create an education and training resource for the Elixir community!

120: Localize and Personalize Your Elixir Apps

Localizing and personalizing an application is separate from the language used in the interface. Kip Cole explains how the mismatch of computers with the culture of our audience creates friction we may not even be aware of. In fact, our benign app may be unintentionally offensive to millions of people! Kip created the libraries ex_cldr, money and tempo to help Elixir developers localize applications in a culture aware way. What does that mean? It means using minimal information we can infer how names should appear, how numbers are represented, the assumed numeric rounding rules, first day of the week, the calendar being used, and more!

110: The End of Localhost Development?

Some people excitedly talk about the “end of localhost development” when developer machines move to the cloud. Presumably this is better because our environments, infrastructure and projects are so complex that they need this additional layer of abstraction just to keep teams productive. Is this our inevitable future? Or is this trying to solve the wrong problem? We talk about what we think this movement is about and how it relates to us. Elixir projects can potentially be much simpler with fewer external dependencies making this move to the cloud less compelling.

104: Exploring Our Data with Chris Grainger

Chris Grainger explains Explorer, Nx's recent addition. It's a “Data Frame” library which sounds far more nebulous than it is. It lets us explore and manipulate two-dimensional data like we already do with DB tables, spreadsheets, CSV files, etc. Only this works in memory, is faster, and has predefined functions that make it very powerful. Explorer fills an important slot in the overall pie for data science and ML in Elixir. However, Explorer is also one of the tools that “regular” Elixir devs can take advantage of today!

91: Reviewing Elixir with José Valim - Part 3

José Valim returns to continue with part 3 of our 5 part series as we count down to the 10 year anniversary of the Elixir project we know and love. In Part 3, we talk through the Elixir releases of 1.7, 1.8, and 1.9. We talk about the unification efforts between Elixir and Erlang. These came through changes to error stacktraces, how documentation is stored, a unified logger, and more. We learn how features like Mix.target made a big difference for the Nerves project. We also hear the call for contributors to help bring a few remaining date/time features to Elixir. The big feature in Elixir 1.9 was the addition of deployment releases and the early efforts at managing config for releases. We thought this would be a short episode but found there was a lot to talk about and learn!

We talk with Paul Copplestone, founder and CEO of Supabase. Supabase leverages the power of Elixir, Postgres, and more to create an OpenSource Firebase alternative that brings these powers to the Jamstack community. We cover TechCrunch’s coverage of their funding and how Paul considers Supabase as “the easiest way to use Postgres”. They offer a row-level security feature and we dig in to understand that. We go deeper on how an OpenSource company got VC funding and how their business model works. Paul shares how Elixir, Phoenix and PubSub solve some hard problems that other ecosystems just don’t handle and how Supabase helps those other communities get some of those benefits using the tools they already selected. Some interesting features are that you can self-host if you want, swap out different components, and the permissive licenses. It really seems to embody the OSS ethos.

54: AST Parsing using Sourceror with Lucas San Román

We talk with Lucas San Román about his library Sourceror and how it was created to solve some AST parsing limitations. The Elixir parser discards code comments, so it can’t be used for re-writing Elixir code when refactoring. IDE’s often include more advanced refactoring tools and the ability to provide that requires a smarter parser. Sourceror keeps the comments while also providing advanced features like a Zipper API to more easily navigate around the source tree while inserting and removing nodes.
