Video: Phoenix 1.6 RC, Preview2021-09-03
There are some very exciting updates in Phoenix 1.6 that just recently hit RC. We go through and try them out. It all seems to work great. I consider every bit of it an improvement.
The official blog announcement for RC 0 has the details and I reference it through the video.
I particularly tried out the LiveView Heex template changes which was great. This seems much more ergonomic and it wasn’t bad to begin with at eex/leex.
Then we actually had time to try the new Esbuild setup as the replacement for Webpack. We even added in TailwindCSS. Surprisingly straight-forward. Look forward to use it.
Thanks to the people who dropped in, especially Marcel Fahle for providing some back-and-forth on the frontend-y features.
