Testing a Phoenix application for credential stuffing with Elixir, Floki, and HTTPoison

Are you familiar with credential stuffing attacks? Maybe you have heard about the dangers of password reuse, and even implemented defenses in your own Elixir/Phoenix apps. Have you ever tested the defense?

In this post, learn how credential stuffing works by writing your own testing program in Elixir. If your Phoenix application stores sensitive data, this is an excellent project to see if your current controls are working.


ThinkingElixir 107: Catching Up with Alex Koutmos

In episode 107 of Thinking Elixir, we caught up with Alex Koutmos, a co-host on an Elixir podcast, book author, and OpenSource library creator. We talk about some of his well known libraries like PromEx, but then go into some of his potentially lesser known ones like Doctor, Replug, Unplug, and MJML EEx. I’m happy to learn more about MJML EEx, an email formatting library for improved cross-mail client readers! We talk about the Nerves Weather Station book, and his new book project Elixir Patterns that makes heavy use of Livebook. Come enjoy a deeper visit with an Elixir community contributor!


How "let it fail" leads to simpler code


This blog post summarizes my biggest lesson learned from writing Elixir for 5 years: distinguish expected errors and unexpected errors.

So we can safely ignore the unexpected and let it fail. The only errors our business logic need to handle are the expected errors.

The first version of the authorization library LetMe was released. Check it out! https://github.com/woylie/let_me

Phoenix LiveView Auth - ElixirCasts

Adding authentication to an app that uses LiveView is a little different than a plain old Phoenix app. In this episode, we’ll look at LiveView auth using the ‘on_mount’ and ‘live_session’ functions.


Elixir Meetup #7 by Curiosum!

The cost of developer time is too expensive‼️ You don’t want to waste it‼️☝️ How can you achieve this? Learn more on July 13 at our NEXT ELIXIR MEETUP! 👨‍💻 Register here: https://lnkd.in/esqwQ9m2

One of our goals in day-to-day development is to optimize things, and that’s exactly what we should do to our CIs: reduce badly spent developer time and engage them in something more productive. 📊 📈

13.07.2022, on Elixir Meetup #7, Szymon Soppa will guide you through some steps we implemented in CI at Curiosum and propose a local CI setup that can be shared across your team.

In short: check as much as possible in an automated way, and do not waste time on things you don’t have to do in Code Review and daily development. ✅

ThinkingElixir 106: Coding Music Live in SonicPi with Sam Aaron

In episode 106 of Thinking Elixir, we learn how the SonicPi project has been letting people live code musical performances for years. Sam Aaron joins us to talk about the project and how Elixir is playing an increased role. The project uses multiple languages and frameworks, in fact, Joe Armstrong created the Erlang portion for handling the concurrent IO needs. We talk about where the project is, what’s new in the upcoming release, and more about the future of Elixir with the project. LiveView as a UI for jamming with your friends in a distributed musical performance tool? Cool! We also talk about SonicPi being used in the education space and introducing kids to coding and much more!

Elixir Outlaws Latest Episode 117: Honey Potion and Problem Solving

Elixir Outlaws is an informal discussion about interesting things happening in Elixir. Our goal is to capture the spirit of a conference hallway discussion in a podcast.


The Twelve-Factor App methodology

Probably not strict Elixir related but often our apps use Heroku (or similar) and are cloud-native. It is worth knowing these rules.

The Twelve-Factor App methodology is a methodology for building software-as-a-service applications. It allows you to eliminate the most common problems with our applications. Some of them have already become the industry standard, so you should get to know them all. The methodology constitutes design guidelines strongly focused on cloud-native, portable, and resilient applications.

ThinkingElixir 105: Plausible Analytics, Elixir, and Privacy with Uku Taht

In episode 105 of Thinking Elixir, we learn about Plausible Analytics, a privacy respecting alternative to Google Analytics that is cloud or self-hostable, OpenSource and written in Elixir! Uku Taht shares how he founded the company, the mission he is on, and what he prioritizes. The company practices a “transparent by default” approach. This means they share a lot about what’s going on, this includes how they recently reached $1m ARR, some of their growing pains, and dealing with the weight of being “the one who has to fix things.” We end with a candid discussion about wellness in our profession and how when we are too close to the problems, we become blind to our own successes. A great, transparent conversation with Uku!


Web Scraping with Elixir

Creating a function with inputs from a file at compile time using Elixir AST

A function body (returning a list of tuples) was being generated manually via a script from a CSV file, which was run in an iex shell manually. That was fine until we needed to translate the strings from the CSV using gettext/1 macro which was not possible with the script anymore.

This blog post shows how to create a function with inputs from a file at compile time using Elixir AST so you don’t need any manual work to keep your function body up to date!

Rate Limiting Server Requests in Elixir

We allow our customers to test PSPDFKit API for free. To prevent resource congestion and uncontrollable infrastructure fees, we decided to rate limit these test API calls. My post provides some background on the rate limiting and explains our rate limiting implementation in our Elixir backend.

Exogiri 0.3.0

Today is the first major (usable) release of Exogiri.

I got tired of not having access to the awesome power of Ruby’s Nokogiri in Elixir, so I ported it. It’s also my first major C project in a while, and my first NIF. So if you’re looking for a project to rip a new one - I encourage you to dig on in.

Currently accepting feedback on:

  • Unimplemented minimum viable project features (stuff that would prevent you from even using the library)
  • Features from libxml2 I forgot to document as unfinished
  • Possible memory leaks
  • Gotchas with NIFs I just plain missed
  • There are platforms the extension doesn’t build on
  • Dude that just isn’t how you do things in C

Grab it here: https://hex.pm/packages/exogiri

Let know where I might have biffed it here: https://github.com/TreyE/exogiri
