Feedback request on new Item form with Elixir and Phoenix

New Item Form with Elixir and Phoenix

What do you think of my new Item form? I followed @phoenixinaction, but I’ve upgraded to the latest versions of Elixir and Phoenix.

I decided to ditch the <%= form_for %> based on insights from a forum post by @josevalim.

With the introduction of HEEx extension: special attributes for if and for blocks, this could be re-written as <div :if={@item.action} class="...">...</div>.
