We are a startup based in India. Now in our company, we have been migrating from PHP/NodeJS to Elixir/Phoenix.
For small projects, we are using PHP. For Big Projects, we are migrating to Elixir/Phoenix.
We will be getting project requirements for PWA in all kinds of the platform(Ecommerce/RideSharing/Booking/food delivery )

We don’t want our team to study different front end languages for different projects.
Please share your experience and suggestion. Your feedback will be a great help to us. Thanks:-)
NOTE: we have just started learning Phoenix Live View

I don’t know if it’s really the case in practice. But I’ve seen a lot of talks about it, and they confirm this.
The only thing is the interoperability with JS libraries. If you really heavily on it. Maybe Elm will not fit your needs.
