Need opinions on something. One of our projects is a large Rails monolith with a ridiculous amount of background jobs. We keep creating additional jobs and adding features to them. More and more I find myself thinking “… if this was Elixir we could do this and that more efficiently…“. I’ve seen talks in the past about replacing parts of their Rails ecosystem with Elixir services.
Has anyone done this as a goal of replacing background jobs with Elixir processes? Any thoughts on that experience?
Doing a full Rails replacement would be wonderful, but is unfortunately not feasible at this point. Is introducing a new tech stack worth it? Would love any opinions from anyone that has introduced Elixir as a service to their existing apps.
