The combo Elixir + Phoenix has been recommended to me by a very good friend to which I asked what the best framework is to build web applications.
My friend told me to go through the official documentation, but it’s all about syntax, typing stuff into
iex, which is rather boring. So i went to the elixir koans.
Now don’t get me wrong. I love the koans, they are funny and thorough, and I will finish this course (I’m halway through).
HOWEVER what I would like is something like the Rust Book. It progressively explains ever-harder features of the language and steadily gives examples to write and compile on my own. There is a lot of talk, detailed explanations, and a clear path that gives small rewards on the way.
Is there anything of the like for elixir ? Some kind of progressive playground ? Everywhere I go I see small chunks of code that isn’t compiled but executed. I’d like to see what an actual programm looks like, be it as small as “hello world”, and grow from there.
Maybe I’m wrong in my whereabouts. If so, please explain me why, and what the best path would be for me.
