I’m new here and I’m interested on building web apps using Phoenix framework.
In my other project I used NodeJS as backend to handle rethinkdb connection and listens to the data emitted by the database.
RethinkDB has official driver for JS but not in Elixir. I found a repo for a Elixir driver but its kinda outdated and inactive already (https://github.com/hamiltop/rethinkdb-elixir).
May I know what who uses RethinkDB as database for your phoenix applications and what driver did you use.
I’m interested in this as well and Googling has brought me here. Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like anyone has replied. It’s very strange, it’s like 4 years ago, all RethinkDB + Elixir development just stopped.
We need to resurrect rethinkdb-elixir, or at least get a new maintainer for the code, and get it up to OTP 20 compatibility.
RethinkDB + Phoenix is really a good combination. Hope someone can fork the original rethinkdb-elixir and develop it.
I imagine this https://rethinkdb.com/blog/rethinkdb-shutdown/ had something to do with that. There’s clearly new governance, and it seems like the community has carried on, but it’s taken a while to get a community release out, and it makes sense that folks might look elsewhere in the intervening time.
