Phoenix 1.5 Beta 8: A New Version of the Web Framework for Elixir
Phoenix is a web framework for the Elixir programming language that aims to provide high performance, productivity, and scalability. Phoenix 1.5 beta 8 is the latest pre-release version of the framework that introduces some new features and improvements.
Another feature of Phoenix 1.5 beta 8 is the integration with Telemetry, a library that collects and reports metrics and events from Elixir applications. Telemetry enables developers to monitor the performance and behavior of their Phoenix applications using tools like Grafana and Prometheus.
Phoenix 1.5 beta 8 also includes some changes in the project structure and configuration, such as using Mix releases instead of Distillery, using Ecto SQL instead of Ecto, and using Phoenix PubSub Redis instead of Phoenix PubSub PG2. These changes are intended to simplify the deployment and management of Phoenix applications.
Phoenix 1.5 beta 8 is available for download from this link[^3^]. The official documentation and guides can be found at this link. The source code and issues can be accessed at this link.Phoenix 1.5 beta 8 is compatible with Elixir 1.9 or later and Erlang/OTP 22 or later. To install Phoenix 1.5 beta 8, you need to have Hex, the package manager for Elixir, installed on your system. You can install Hex by running the following command in your terminal:
Then, you can create a new Phoenix project by running the following command:
mix phx.new project_name
This will generate a new directory with the project files and dependencies. You can then change into the project directory and run the following command to start the Phoenix server:
You can now visit http://localhost:4000 to see your Phoenix application running.To use LiveView in your Phoenix project, you need to add the phoenix_live_view dependency to your mix.exs file and run the following command to install it:
Then, you need to add the following line to your endpoint.ex file to enable LiveView:
socket \"/live\", Phoenix.LiveView.Socket
You can also add the following line to your router.ex file to mount LiveView routes:
live \"/live\", Phoenix.LiveView.Router
Now, you can create LiveView modules and templates in the lib/project_name_web/live directory. A LiveView module is a Elixir module that implements the Phoenix.LiveView behavior and defines the render/1 function that returns the HTML template. A LiveView template is a file with the .leex extension that contains HTML and Elixir expressions. You can use the live_render/2 helper to render a LiveView module from a controller or another LiveView. 061ffe29dd
