How you can download and manage frontend libraries (and Rails comparison)?

Tags: #<Tag:0x00007f1142570b98>


I’m still newbie in Elixir/Phoenix and I’m currently programming in Ruby on Ruby and I noted how pain is to add the front end without using ‘gems’ and how I spend so much time with it. Even using bower I see how restrictive is do adapt all the files until everything comes to work.

Are there some technologies like ‘bower’ that fits like a glove in Phoenix? How Phoenix framework stands out in this feature compared to Rails? Thanks a lot.


Isn’t bower dead now that npm finished integrating its functionality? I don’t really know of anyone who still uses it.

However yes, bower works fine with phoenix. Phoenix by default comes with npm, but all optional. A lot of people use yarn too. Use whatever you want.
