I’m probably one of the very few using Elixir and Phoenix at my job right now I guess I’m lucky, but it would be nice to know if other people are using it and what for.
I’m developing a web app for service integration and automation (launch and use tools from the app, instead of having to access each app individually) and to have a central hub/channel for communication inside teams and with clients.
We are using Elixir/Phoenix combination. What a fantastic experience it is. We are making web services / apps and IoT backend. we are leaving Nodejs development behind. and we are not missing it a bit.
I work for a consultancy and we use an in-house application to track who is allocated to which project. Its all real time so that when we’re planning things out everyones client is kept up to date. Originally it was written in Rails and Pusher for real time stuff. We’ve been slowly converting it to elixir + phoenix.
We are implementing a backend API for our mobile app. Everything is written with Phoenix and will be deployed in Heroku.
The same backend is serving a web dashboard (Phoenix again) to manage the contents for the app but in this case we are not using Phoenix template but a Bootstrap/AngularJS combination.
