Hello! I am new to the Elixir language and general eco-system and am in general a pretty new dev to everything related to web-dev, I wanted to create a project using Phoenix yet was wondering if Phoenix was back-end only or if it also dealt with front-end UI stuff. This is a very broad question that applies to pretty much every SSR project under the sun but in general what does the MVC outline? Thank you!
Phoenix can make sure your project is serving JS files to the browser so it can be used for a big variety of projects, single-page-applications included (though that’s not a good fit for it).
It can also be setup to use various JS builders/runners/transformers like
esbuild and others.
Phoenix is a real-time web framework that also features leading cutting edge technology like LiveView
There are some hints in that description - real-time (where you can push updates in near enough real time to everyone connected) and LiveView (see vid above)
If you’re still not quite sure what all that is, an alternative question might be to summarise what kind of apps you want to build and ask whether Phoenix might be a good fit for you
