Access module, composable & extensible abstraction to get & update deep nested data.
Built Custom metrics, and custom analytic based on top of graylog.
In this part we’ll do a step further, making both keys and values persistent. Taking inspiration from the Bitcask design, we will see how to enhance our implementation and to recover the Index in the case of a failure.
I’d argue Elixir has relatively few gotchas. It’s a simple and consistent language and when you first learn it there’s only a few things that are genuinely counter-intuitive and catch you by surprise…
For this year’s Advent Of Code, I will be posting my solutions in Elixir with a breakdown of how the functions work and things I learned along the way.
Today I published a new package where I’ll collect all the best and most helpful assertions to help you write better tests! I add some version of these to pretty much every project I start.
The package is called, fittingly enough,
I was on a recent episode of Elixir Mix. We talked about a wide range of Elixir-related topics, and how I’m putting Elixir to good use in two of my ongoing projects.
More bare metal Elixir. This time we open a remote terminal into our GRiSP application over a wifi connection.
ExVenture is a text based MMORPG. Some pretty big refactors finalized this month, with multiple characters per account and logging in via Grapevine OAuth (a player portal for text based games.) Gossip also had some good updates this month as well. Check out the post for more information!
First part of a series of articles aimed to explain (and implement in Elixir just for the purpose of a better inspection) the architecture behind a kv-store engine based on logs. In this first part I show what a log is and how we can use an index to make data persistent.
This version is tested and blessed to use with Phoenix 1.4.
Elixir is a pretty awesome new language based on the Erlang VM that offers some cool features like: high concurrency model, fast execution time, clustering and stateful made easy. However, the real question is: Should we use Elixir in production?
