In the Smart Logic podcast Dave Thomas says that for him, Elixir has lost part of it’s shine.
Listen at 54:30 - (https://smartlogic.io/podcast/elixir-wizards/s4e5-thomas/) - Dave talks about his desire for a native pipeline operator. At 40:30 he talks about his desire for a component model described in his Empex Keynote (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6U7cLUygMeI).
Core elixir is ‘done’ (watch https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=suOzNeMJXl0 at 54:00) by virtue of the fact that elixir was designed to be an extensible language.
Re: native pipeline - do community projects like railway-oriented-programming and witchcraft get the job done? If not, why not?
Re: component model - Dave states (at 43:00) that his prototype for component-driven-elixir cannot proceed without the interest from the core team. If so - why?
Question: Can Elixir be extended to support language innovations Dave described in the podcast?
