Hello all, first time posting and looking forward to being a fellow positive, contributing member here.
I am completely new, not only to Elixir, but to programming in general so apologies in advance if questions aren’t phrased in the most “logical” way. I am trying to set up a website to help artists and musicians and have the following concerns/questions:
Are there any special issues relating to using either Bootstrap 4 or CSS Grid with html in Elixir?
I would like to incorporate either GIS data (or JSON file from some GIS type entity like a city or county) to list real time map info on site to show address locations. I’ve been told that GIS data is usually in Python or R. Will doing this in Elixir be a problem? Or is this done via an API which would then be language agnostic?
Any special considerations when implementing an API in Elixir?
Lastly, big reason I chose to learn Elixir to invest time to learn was the concepts taught by Uncle Bob Martin and Rob Martin with their Youtube videos on benefits of functional programming/TDD/BDD. Am I correct in assuming that many issues are avoided automatically by using Elixir since we’re using FP or do I still need to be doing testing on regular basis?
Thanks in advance!
