What Elixir related stuff are you doing?

I’ve just been automating the bonus day system for the competition/forum… so now I just need to add a list of bonus days at the start of the month and they’ll automatically get announced on the forum :003: :lol:

I think I can now finally get back into reading PE1.2 :023:

Elixir related stuff I am doing? I have a character grinding healing potions in a browser game, does that count as elixir related?

Kidding aside:

Currently I do quite some stuff that is at least related to BEAM:

  • Learning Phoenix for the sake of learning it (I just started, again)
  • Disecting an erlang application
  • Helping @sashaafm out on exads
  • Diving into my own project monolith
  • Reading this forum as if there was nothing else
  • Trying to find some time to watch the daze videos
  • Waiting for a response of a possible employer using erlang as main-technology

I am sure, that I missed one or two things…

I’m trying to setup my spacemaps :stuck_out_tongue:

I’ve been:

  • reading programming elixir again (well, 1.2 now) but actually doing all the exercises
  • glancing at metaprogramming elixir
  • reading and working through programming phoenix
  • browsing this site
  • creating a word game helper/solving to try and force thinking in processes
  • just today agreeing to give an elixir 101 talk to some co-workers in a few weeks

Is posting code and asking for thoughts/review something encouraged here? If so, what label would make the most sense? I find I still feel really clumsy when writing elixir code.

Do you want to join our team over there on exercism?

Depending on the level, you may want to post in Learning Elixir or Advanced Elixir. Learning Elixir has more traffic, but, given your projects, Advanced Elixir may be more appropriate.

Maybe we need an “Elixir Programming” category? There’s an awful lot of ground between Learning and Advanced :smile:

I’m using Elixir to process some CSV files. It’s going much better since I figured out how the files are encoded. See this thread.

Trying to get rid of Dialyzer warnings on bootstrapped Phoenix application.

I’ve started writing my first serious Phoenix app which scratches one of our companies’ own itches. Still feeling kind of overwhelmed since I haven’t really learned a new language since I encountered Ruby some eight years ago. The performance is amazing though and the documentation and community are great for such a young ecosystem.

Hi! I have been learning elixir programming constructs thru online tutorials. Tried setting up a Phoenix API too.

I am currently working a new theme.

I am going to call it the Alchemist theme and it will be available for TextMate, Sublime Text, Vim and Emacs/Spacemacs :003:

What do you think?

Edit: You can find it here: Introducing Elixify - a code editor theme for Elixir!

I figured out how to use GenServer to help me use the observer to find a problem in my code.

I’m waiting for my Pi3 and a nerves release supporting at least the basics such that I can experiment around with it. In the meantime I am planning around what to do with it.

Current plan:

  • Use as a security cam which can be turn on/off by me and my wife via gestures (and facerecognition) [Might take a long route, so for the start, just start with a web interaface ;)]
  • Room-climate-control (we already have a WiFi heating-vent, which we can only control via webinterface, but thats better than our son playing around and turning it on full in summer while putting it of in winter)

Looks good on the eyes. How is it goin’ with this?

It’s mostly finished and I’ve been using it for the last few days in TextMate (it’s easier to make the theme for TextMate then port to the other editors than the other way around). I’ll give it a few more days and if I think it’s ok will start work on porting it over to Vim, Atom, Emacs, Sublime etc

It’s actually changed a bit since that screen :003:

Would be glad to take a look at it when it’s ready :). Do you use emacs @AstonJ?

I use Vim… but have recently installed Spacemacs as I hear so many good things about it for Elixir dev :slight_smile:

Which editor do you use? I’ll let you know when its version is ready for a test drive if you like :smiley:

Sure just give me a buzz if it’s ready. :slight_smile:
I usually use sublime text but have just started to look into vim. vim is great and I was hearing good things about emacs too with its evil mode. Then recently just read some articles about Spacemacs and Alchemist though haven’t dived into it yet since I am still lacking time to freely explore it at the moment. How is Spacemacs then?

Awesome!!! I didn’t thought about that!!

I created my first Elixir thing :D. A phoenix web to show in as real time as I can the current position of the Buses in Gijón (my hometown). I am trying not to automate a deployment to production.
