What You're Getting Yourself Into...

In this tutorial you're going to build a simple CRUD app using Elixir and the Phoenix Framework. It will support new, create, index, edit,update,destroy and a homepage.

This tutorial assumes you have experience building web applications using other languages and frameworks.

Sometimes I will make analogies to Ruby on Rails, for clarity, so if you are not familiar with it, things might get a little confusing.

Source code for both the Guide and the Completed Splurty app are both available on GitHub.

If you follow through to the end of the tutorial, you will have built a web application with Phoenix and Elixir. The application will show a user generated quote that is randomly selected and pulled from a Postgres database. The quote will tell you why you should learn Elixir and should look like this:
