I’ve been working with Elixir and Phoenix for 4 years, but I keep forgetting about the phoenix phx.new task tags, such as
--no-html, because I rarely start a new phoenix project. Most of the time, I’m maintaining an existing one.
I was wondering if it would make more sense to make
phx.new interactive, asking the user each time what they would like include/exclude, as such tasks are usually initiated by a user as oppose to a CI/CD environment.
Just throwing it out there
Each time I forget options… I use
iex> mix help phx.new
• --live - include Phoenix.LiveView to make it easier than ever to build
interactive, real-time applications
• --umbrella - generate an umbrella project, with one application for
your domain, and a second application for the web interface.
• --app - the name of the OTP application
• --module - the name of the base module in the generated skeleton
• --database - specify the database adapter for Ecto. One of:
• postgres - via https://github.com/elixir-ecto/postgrex
• mysql - via https://github.com/elixir-ecto/myxql
• mssql - via https://github.com/livehelpnow/tds
Please check the driver docs for more information and requirements.
Defaults to "postgres".
• --no-webpack - do not generate webpack files for static asset building.
dependencies if building HTML apps
• --no-ecto - do not generate Ecto files.
• --no-html - do not generate HTML views.
• --no-gettext - do not generate gettext files.
• --no-dashboard - do not include Phoenix.LiveDashboard
• --binary-id - use binary_id as primary key type in Ecto schemas
• --verbose - use verbose output
I would prefer something like suspenders from thoughtbot for phoenix. That would be nice.
I always forget “about the tags” not really “what the available tags are and what they do”. I usually end up deleting the project and creating it again with the appropriate tags that I want.
