Elixer and Phoenix Liveview

A car as metaphor, and featuring yet another introduction to functional programming, yet I liked reading This is the Future of Webdev. Crazy, Right? on Elixir, and Phoenix Liveview, a web framework. The article starts with a general overview of functional programming and obligatory criticism on object oriented programming, but builds u pretty quickly to an intro to Erlang, Elixir and Phoenix Liveview.

Especially the latter makes me very curious to try it all out. Seems a much easier way to build single page webapps than what I’ve used until now.

To a certain extend the way it allows communication from client and server in both ways very natural reminds me a bit of Vaadin and Meteor, but with added advantage of a fp and the actor model.
