Phoenix Framework – another MVC framework
Phoenix Framework is a web development framework written in Elixir which implements the server-side MVC pattern. Many of its components and concepts will seem familiar to those of us with experience in other web frameworks like Ruby on Rails or Python’s Django.
Phoenix provides the best of both worlds – high developer productivity and high application performance. It also has some interesting new twists like channels for implementing realtime features and pre-compiled templates for blazing speed.
If you are already familiar with Elixir, great! If not, there are a number of places to learn. The Elixir guides are a great place to start. We also have a list of helpful resources in the Learning Elixir and Erlang Guide.
The aim of this introductory guide is to present a brief, high-level overview of Phoenix, the parts that make it up, and the layers underneath that support it.
