Created an Elixir Orb for Circle CI, any feedback is appreciated. If you use CircleCI for your Elixir projects, it will be useful.

A thread here on the forum inspired me to tackle optimizing a string processing script in Elixir. Documented the steps I took, the performance difference and the tradeoffs.

It looks like your blog is currently down? Although maybe I’m just having issues with .dev domains.

@axelson It’s up here, what do you get when you nslookup blog.jola.dev? I get:

╰─➤  nslookup blog.jola.dev
Server:         127.0.1.1

Working ok here too :023:

Nice one @jola - I love seeing forum inspired talks/blogs :003:

Looks like pow added a custom resolver for both .dev and .test. So a sudo rm /etc/resolver/dev fixed it.

Thanks @jola for a great article, I particularly liked that it touched on the context to help you decide if you want to make these tradeoffs for speed at the expense of clarity/simplicity. (And thanks for finally giving me the impetus to fix my systems .dev domain handling!)

Hey all! This is my latest post for the Hashrocket blog, an interview with Jeremy Huffman, maintainer of Dialyxir. It came from my experimentation with the tool, and wanting to learn more.

I’ve (re)started a blog and written my first post along with accompanying github repo. I welcome feedback.

This is more about the clever use of OpenSSH features than Elixir properly, but it is a problem that we faced and took some time to solve, so here it is. Any feedback is very welcome.

Hi all! Here’s a post about Phoenix internals: https://blog.griffinbyatt.com/2019/04/15/Phoenix-Not-Magic-1.html

I really enjoyed this. You had me at:

If you are new to Phoenix, you may only recognize the Endpoint as “the thing you sometimes tweak configs in”

That’s a pretty awesome start! I’d might recommend making Chapter 1 about Plug instead since Phoenix is built on it (or if you already have a post about Plug then link to it at the start of the Endpoint chapter). Definitely something I’ll link around to people online. :slight_smile:

Thanks! The idea of tackling both Plug and Phoenix in one go was pretty daunting, but it’s something I’m sure I’ll be circling back to.

The way I should have been testing genservers (2016)

Last Wednesday I went to Elixir Meetup in Cracow’s headquarters of Erlang Solutions. It was supposed to be about basics of Elixir and how pipe operator influenced the software design, but I learned another priceless lesson. I’ve been testing GenServers callbacks wrong whole time…

@jackmarchant Entirely agree! I’ve always done the make each ‘app’ a library and just have a main app who’s whole purpose is to depend on them, pass names between them for any needed linkages, and handle configs. I’ve always found it so much better than umbrellas.
