Video: Phoenix 1.6 RC, Preview

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.
